Dear Music Loving Friends, It is heart warming to have you reach out in such a noble manner. I am deeply moved by your kind gesture and thank you both for same. I shall gladly share with you, whatever little that I may know.
As for the affront: By reffering to the lion and it not eating grass no matter how hungry, he was indicating that I had "sold out" by going digital/solid state. In other words, I was not made of sterner stuff, for had I been, I would still be lugging around a 150 pound Studer C37! I have absolutly no objection to somone criticizing my work, but do not take kindly to someone questioning my integrity, especially when they do not have all the facts. What I was objecting to, was the implication that somehow I had failed, I had betrayed a cause, crossed party lines, gone astray... To fully undstand the reference to the lion, one needs to read the TNT interview. Further, he assumed that I had compleetly abandoned analog, which is not the case as the TNT interview makes clear.
Your member has very kindly appologised to me, both in private and publicly via this forum and I have accepted it unconditionaly. So, I say we put the veggitarian lions behind us and move on to more meaningfull things
such as how many strands of pure copper there needs to be in a mike cable! Lamb chopps anyone?!
I am honoured to be welcomed into such a wonderful forum and respect very much you keeping the flame of good sound alive. All the very best. Kavi Alexander.
