He Is...the Most Interesting Gear Slut!

He doesn't always compress on the way in, but if he does he chains a Fairchild, an 1176 and an LA2A.

His room mics are the U67s from the Beatles sessions.

When he produces an album he graciously grants the band a few points and mentions them in the liner notes.

He can tune a piano in 5 minutes with plyers and a pocket watch.

His ears go to 384 kHz!

He can hear the noise floor of a single carbon comp resistor.

Knock yourselves out!

He doesn't need to worry about phase...He only needs 1 mic.

He or she manufactures their own tubes by hand on Sunday morning and can re-bias telepathically.

He never has to compress in the mix at all... The peaks get in line by themselves out of respect.

Though uncredited, in '69 he co-wrote 'Here comes the sun' with George Harrison after not seeing any daylight for more than one year due to his heavy work schedule.

He mixed the entire Hotel California record in one day on headphones in a room AT Hotel California and then left without checking out.

He doesn't always drink beer when he mixes gold records but when he does he prefers Dos Equis.

His skin flares with a rash if he hears Behringer in the signal chain.

Perhaps confirming that a picture is worth a thousand words... his every thousand posts are worth just one picture. And that picture is...



...which is coincidentally the worth of his thousand-word posts.

A classic GS circle jerk!

He prefers to mix songs with a razor blade directly to the tape.

He doesn't always use modeling plugins... but when he does they're indistinguishable from their analog counterparts.

His body has a NRC of 1 across the entire spectrum.

He can sum to mono in his mind.

His voice message machine is a vinyl lathe.

He doesn't always post on Gearslutz... but when he does the thread ends.

He can make you a new cable faster than you can say "Hey, anyone got a spare mic lead?"

He mixes on an Soundtracs console he bought for $100 on ebay but because he modded it himself it sounds better than a SSL.

He 100% always matches the preamp to the right audio file in those match-the-sample blind tests. And if there is a Neve involved he can even tell you the serial number.

He can fix old Studer tape machines MacGyver style with only 2 burnt matches, a rusty razor blade and six cable ties. No matter what is wrong it.

He only posts in the High End forum.

He ain't married.

Tubes and transformers get their mojo from him...

When he walks into a room, the acoustics automatically treat themselves...

He records a whole band perfectly with one mic, in one take, on one track, on tape.
