The first time I had to punch and comp vocals for six hours I felt like killing puppy dogs. I couldn't do it.

Being able to solo Pete Townshend and hear every nuance of what he played at a live show that you were at when you were in High School? Priceless...

I wouldn't have traded the time that I spent mixing for anything.

I enjoy mixing MORE since I started mastering full time. Mastering has definitely helped my mixing. Knowing mixing helps me communicate with mixers better. I always loved tracking, hated overdubs.
Dave, I'm with you as far as live sound. I did quite a bit in my younger days. I think I enjoyed like 5 nights out of hundreds.... but those 5 nights were doozies.

And that's saying something - your mixing skills were pretty sick to begin with...

For sure!
Dave's mixes sound like finished masters - except without the added 90dB of gain

Well I was pleased the mix job was 45 mins of stems (albeit for some "sticky outy" toms that did my head in.

I had to balance it on a single VDU which sucks but I have a few tricks up my sleeve for pro tools when thats the case, after the first track things got a lot better, band had warmed up, record engineer warmed up, I warmed up, popped back to the first track to tweak some after doing the rest

It was a nice afternoons work, no where near as chilled as mastering work is but sometimes being put out of comfort is just what you need.
