I think the inconsistency is more based on the different preferences of the bands he records than on a lackadaisical approach to mixing (e.g. leaving the faders how they were during tracking).

Oh yeah, for sure....I still think that he needs a mixing engineer half the time, especially if he leaves the faders pretty much where they were.

Also good by Albini: Didjits' "Que Sirhan, Sirhan" (once again Albini under the pseudonym "Reggie Stiggs")-- "Little Miss Carriage" was extraordinarily thin sounding, but "Que Sirhan, Sirhan" really kicks ass. One of Albini's best overall mixes and best drum sounds, I think.

Well, would you like him to be transparent? or to add his sonic footprint?

You been sniffing cough medicine fumes again Terry?
Luckily, I'd just finished my sandwich, otherwise that would've been all over the puter keyboard.

..., as much as he really just stays out of the way. As far as i've been told and what he's said, he leaves alot of the fussing up to the band and just records them....


I do believe that he's admitted that he has a certain sonic imprint, though he really just goes in and gives bands what they want, rather than some producer suggesting alot of things. ...





yeah. doesn't it SUCK when the producer actually tries to HELP the band?

Most bands, such as The Beatles, need a Producer.

Some few, such as Led Zeppelin, do not.


Steve must be fortunate to work with those that do not.

The palm trees really take away from the guitar.  Laughing
