do not forget, it's YOU

I've done enough bitching for one day, let's all not forget that it's the person who is important.

 

Borjam has in his sigline:
"Don't worry about the drums. I'm a percussionist, I can play on carton boxes" - Peer Wyboris


So true: Zappa when he was young. (Do click the link!)
Must see, not a cat puking funny!

 

Then there was a phrase (I forgot by whom) 'I don't care how many tracks you have, how does it sound?'

One of our local rock 'n roll heroes was also a painter, he once (for a stupid TV show) painted with shit on the cheapest paper he could find, using a piece of chewed wood as a brush, making the statement that an artist should be able to work with whatever he has.

I once wrote here about Robbie Muller, who worked with whatever equipment was available.

 

It's about mastering the craft, adapt to situations, not the equipment.

I have so much respect for mixers who can work like this - like a true jazz musician. For me to jam I’d have to bring my own piano. 
 

but all well said!

It is both. Even the most experienced sound pro cannot make GREAT sound with substandard equipment. There is no magic involved here.
