Great stuff from Brian, but the gating on the dialogue was a bit suffocating.

The LEFT CENTER RIGHT idea and the meaning behind is so great. Thanks a lot for this thoughts!

I've never, ever, ever listened to music in terms of boundaries to stay within. This thought is still resonating a month or so later. That's just one of many pearls he gave us with this one. This is one of those occasions where kicking back and letting the masters ramble/chat is priceless. I hope he does some more for PureMix.

Lavishly-generous with your knowledge, know-how and insights on the mastering process. So much so that I am now convinced that all ‘really good music’ deserves—and should be—mastered with the professional care and heart-felt passion you have demonstrated in this video. Very best regards!
