I had a great time in Portland at the Tape Op Conference. A lot of great people that were really interested in bettering there craft and not just looking at the latest reverb unit. The mastering Panel went well. From the response me and the other engineers were getting it seems like people got a lot out of it. Steve Albini was talking about mixing and track usage. Even with a sore throat he was very good. Met a lot of engineers. Saw a lot of bands. Tape Op took good care of us all.
