The bottom line here is the medium of exchange. Digital. It's common knowledge among engineers that it doesn't sound as good....but it's the common consumer who matters and will be catered to be kept happy...Not us. As long as they are purchasing MP3's, A/D, outboard gear, ITB, OTB, can vary heavily because it doesn't really matter how "analog" we think it sounds. Tape machines are so cheap these days it makes me laugh. heh (why I use one).

The fact is...playing fields are way more level in the present. There's probably some 16 year old with parents in the industry, some knowledge, and a UAD card w/ Logic in the bedroom that has just as much a chance to produce or create a hit song as me. Colbie Caillat was a great example of that.
