=\ it seems like every thread here has become people showing their mixes rather than giving legible mixing advice with detailed examples. don't get me twisted, i like how everyone here is creative and ambitious. i like a lot of the mixed/arrangements (for the most part). another thought is; i realize i am not moderating the forum and it's not my way or the highway but i can't understand most of these threads. the mod is doing great keeping people in line and rearranging necessary questions and comments but it seems as though the "off topic" brand of this forum is more of a production topic (related) and the production topic is more of a faq consortium. so... i have seen some recent threads talking about the same situation i am, right now. i guess it seems a little disarray in here now. please tell me i'm crazy and i will shut-it.
