Hey Paul you make sense.

If only some artists would take a crash course in sound technology the world would be a better place. Have you tried mastering the dynamics the way you would want it done then ask the artist if they really want extra distortion it costs more. You could also explain to folk about the volume knob. That would fix all their problems.

Could someone explain what a bass boost is and why we might need one? Most music nowadays has the bass well and trully boosted already.
With all this extra loudness and oomph that seems to be the norm nowadays I pity all the neighbours.
A guy I know has a 1000w system IN HIS CAR wow what an idiot you hear him before you see him. He has a bad habit of saying pardon all the time. I wonder why.
