    Amazing interview! Thank you for getting around to almost every question I would’ve wanted to ask Andrew myself. Keep up the great work. Real, working, living breathing audio engineers need information and perspective like what Andrew dishes out here. We’re tired of fluff, fantasy, and hype!

    This was awesome. Keep talking to my assistants about the interview.

    Brilliant interview with Mr. Scheps, very well done! What I’d really like to know though is Scheps’ trick that is based around his parallel compression technique about his SEND/RETURN levels because he did say he might send multiple channels to the same PARALLEL BUS. Now, doing that things can get loud pretty quickly so does he drop the LEVELS by -6db for say before he sends it to the chain or what exactly is the deal? I’d really like if you could ask him that…
