i wouldn't bother........tracking to tape and then duming in the computer is cool,but the other way round.......bit pointless really........i'd be more inclined to tell you to stem yer mix out onto a console,mix in a "traditional" way to a well mantained and aligned 1/2" or 1/4" deck.you'll get more...

he's English,although he lives in LA,or atleast he did when i worked with him (on a fucking Duran Duran album,about 10 years ago)

he did a bunch of 70's Elton John records,some Bowie stuff......basically the bulk of the music that came out of Trident in the 70's.....nice guy too.
