the 80s?

gearslutz is a funny place. brian lucey has loads of bromancers on the mastering board, and he goes to great lengths to try and present himself as mr wise zen master. 

 

And snarl at you meaner than a junk yard dog. When the teacher reprimands the students, he is quick to point out who started it and he was just defending himself when Mastering Engineers Attack!

GS, where the gurus are Winer,Williams, and Lucey.....

(the post area is pretty useful, though.)

I haven't logged in over there in g_d knows when.

To tell the truth, it took me days (and a few beers) to even open THIS thread! Ha.

As always, thanks to Terry (and membership here) for everything; it is quite literally the only audio form I regularly visit.

I come here to learn about the craft.

TBH, in the 11 years Since joining GS, I've evolved. From typical "what's the best X for Y...?" posts to explaining why other factors matter more to the final result.
When Terry first sent out his invitations to this forum, I thought "another audio forum...oh well, why not?". In the meantime I really enjoy the alternative, the comparatively low headcount, the absence of trolls (I can be prone to take the bait) and have absolutely no problem being the dumbest guy in the room, because I know I'll walk out a tiny bit smarter.

I feel the same way. And your skill set travels with you, doesn't need a road case, voltage convertors, can't get lost or stolen in shipping. The broader and deeper your skill set (when I say you, of course I mean me), the less dependent you are on the gear at hand. It does require the occasional firmware update, though.

I come here every day to read and check in on things. Since Terry opened this I have learned so much, and also UNlearned so much and in the end started completing things. Best forum EVA!

oh and John is great over there, i actually go to the guitar section just to see what he has posted in response to "I sold all my old 60's valve amps and replaced them with this amp sim, its AWESOME, can someone tell me how they re tube these things?

Well... I AM thinking about unloading some amps and getting a Kemper after my latest recording project with one. 

So...

I'm probably keeping that. 
But at least one or two Hiwatts and cab and a Marshall and an ampeg or two might very well go.

priceless gold!

Well, I have not read that thread and am not going to go to the trouble of looking for that but that quote might be a bit out of context - more frequently than I would like I find myself being (entirely unwillingly) being made the (entirely off-topic) subject of a thread when I make a statement or register a point of view that the resident monkeys in the peanut gallery don't agree with. Rather than bragging that the thread "is about him" he could be complaining about people turning the thread towards him personally. But I don't know, I haven't read it (or any of his stuff), I just know the way too many people over there behave.

Don't get me started about Winer.

No John, it's all about him. It is actually funny and depressing to read at the same time.

Brian seems to get to say whatever he wants about anybody else but if someone challenges him it seems the posts are deleted or he turns on them and attacks. I like Brian but the thread is totally self serving (it was set up to be in its title) and he insults other etablished mastering engineers. That I don't like at all.

Speaking of which, John, do you happen to have any opinions about how frequently guitar strings should be changed in recording sessions? image

Cheers,

Josh
