Ok boys. Here are my requests: 1. Please don't recomend the BBE Sonic Maximizers (haha). 2. Don't have a thin skin. 3. Be kind. 4. Know that ANY GEAR + inexperienced engineer or bad engineer = bad sound. ANY GEAR + great engineer = generally great sound, or at least the best that it can be. You cannot buy great gear and expect it to do the job. I know that I have heard some of the best mixes in small clubs, with unsuspecting systems, by guys that knew their gear intimately.
