OK! Since moving over to a DAW the ability to automate click track volume has been great, I can turn it down for a breakdown, just enough not to screw up cymbal decay.. and back up again AND STORE THE MOVE! (ah the relief!) Ditto singers headphone mixes..... dangerous - bleed nightmares can be 'dipped' via the DAWs aux send automation. (do-able on digital desks too no doubt!) Ashley I suppose you could record a click track volume 'performance to a track on 2", never thought of that..... ) Anyhow, having bought a dandy pair of cans (seheiser HD580's - half price & the same pair my best client engineer uses) I guess I BETTER %$$*((£(&@^£ USE THE SUCKERS, REMEMBER THE CANS!!!
