My favorite part was when he talked about sound and the room and also speaker placement. In reference to how wide or narrow your mix is and how important it all is.

What a great video. This guy really knows what he's talking about. The very last part about width was brilliant and deep.

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.
