All the masters I do are really soft.  The PEAK at -40.  That means less power used by power amps to play them.



If class A, they will waste the same amount of energy as full-chat just to spite you.

Seriously, though.  Future generations are going to LAUGH at things we do, especially in terms of energy generation.  Heck, we go to space by strapping a big tank of explosive liquid to our rears and lighting a match...



Built by the low-bidder?

Really, whether it's solar powered satellites, oceanic temp change generation, earth axis spin repulsion - or some anti gravity thing we haven't figured out, there has got to be some really ingenious way to have much 'cheaper' energy.  I'm sure DC would have figured it out if he weren't always building LIMITERS!

   Other than the option of quitting the bizness, moving to a hay bale cabin in the country, growing organic produce, taking up the banjo, & living by candle light, much like my agrarian ancestors, that's about all I can think of.




Yeah right, like you don't already play the banjo.

I'm thinking an agrarian would walk five miles easy before firing up the pickup.  

Five minutes?

fwiw... an email I came across (no responsibility taken for these measurements or use of the search engine):

When your computer screen is white - an empty word page, or the Google page, your computer consumes 74 watts, and when its black it consumes only 59 watts. Mark Ontkush wrote an article about the energy saving that would be achieved if Google had a black screen, taking in account the huge number of page views, according to his calculations, 750 mega watts/hour per year would be saved.

In a response to this article Google created a black version of its search engine, called Blackle, with the exact same functions as the white version, but with a lower energy consumption, check it out.

Hahaha

Well I did play a little tenor banjo in a dixieland combo back in college, but that was 30 years ago.

... and I suppose you walk thru West Hollywood everyday on your way [home}... or is that the point?

I've been cycling and taking the train to and from the studio for the past three months.  Also, but on the home front,  I've been line-drying my clothes - that took twenty five percent off my natural gas bill.  Not to mention not having a second automobile anymore. More money, more exercise and less pollution. So far , so good.  I'm only recently stepping into mastering- but I guess it still counts.

I've been burning hippies for fuel.



Bamboo floors, recycled denim insulationhttp://www.bondedlogic.com/, dim lighting, careful AC use, little car and all because I know it balances out the use of tubes.
