"… as you can see, I have instituted a new stage in music production. It’s not really new. Everybody does it. But it’s new to me. The mixdown. The mixdown stage is also painstaking, so I figure it should get it’s own nomenclature (ie "songnamemixdown_1 and so on…), and should be instituted after the creative stage (with the earlier "songname_1" nomenclature). I think this mix is pretty good. But ask yourself one question: "Is he using the word "nomenclature" correctly?" I don’t know the answer to that question, and I just don’t feel like looking the word up right now. Also, are the guitars too high in relation to the drums? Those cymbals are loud, and I’m worried if I raise the drums up any more, the cymbals will be menacing. Also, the music as a whole may be quieter than the original version. just turn your speaker volume up. I can’t do anything about the overall volume until I get to the mastering stage."
This quote comes from an email from my brother, Matt Foreman, a soon-to-be world-famous music recording superstar (as soon as he figures it all out). I just wanted to point out his dedication to the art of audio engineering and to the ongoing struggle we all face, resisting the negative forces of mediocre grammer (plus, I thought it was quite humorous).
