Another great set of vidoes by Dave Pensado
I really enjoy Dave's videos. He continually demonstrates out of the box thinking, to encourage mix engineers to be creative. I'm still in the early learning phase, and it will be a little while before I try many of his ideas. But, the thought seed are there, waiting to grow.
