Smile first is quite adequate notice:)
second is stupid crap:)

I sometimes work with hip-hop and i can remember even more stupid things: "Why it is dificult to record that rock bands? Oh i used to hear what they recording all that instrument by instrument" Smile Sometimes i hear such things about surround from people downloading AC3 encoded music:
"oh i think it is avesome, sounds like recorded with 4 mics:)"

"Would it help him sing better if I took my top off?"- the answer was yes in case you were wondering.

"It smells like A&R in here"

Rappers: "Band members going inside and outside of vocal cabin while recording:)"

"Singers sometimes have no clue what they need to sing to the mic and not turn head all the time"

"oh this plug looks nice can we try to put it on vocal?"

Some drummer puted floor tom and Ride before HH. So it is:

Floor Tom, Ride, HH, Crash1 Snare, Rack Tom1, Rack Tom2

Question: how would you place overheead mics in that case? As it was some quick and live recording (used 4 mics). I usually have all kit micked but if they don't want to pay much i do live records as well for half price.

A guy called and asked the studio manager:" Do you have the big Pro Tool?"

Client asks the engineer on a session "Can you put some of that mad extortion on my vocal?"

Both true.

This happened to a friend of mine...

Rapper, gesturing excitedly toward the SSL 9000 in front of him:
