Guest Posted December 6, 2000 Share Posted December 6, 2000 Just finished a project at one of the biggest studios in the country. This studio has it all, SSL, Neve, outboard for days, beautiful rooms and an orchestra room...basically a 5 or 6 million dollar facility. The assistant rolls out the PT rack, 72 i/o, acres of farms, everything. 1st off....the engineer tells my client that "audio isn't important to these guys" refering to us "because we use ProTools" How dare this man talk to my client and basically insult us because of the gear we keep. I listened to my work in his monitors and it sounded fine. He then transfered my 24 bit ProTools sessions to a 3348 (16bit) and it actually sounded worse. Then whoa and behold, I check out the Plug in folder of the PT system and it was full of pirate software. My Questions: 1. Why are some engineers so narrow minded that their minds won't even consider new technologies. 2. Why do these engineers scourn at us little guys who can't afford a zillion dollar console and a $250000 recorder? 3. Why do they think that we "don't care about audio" because we use computers, and in my humble opinion one of the most creative audio tools ever (ProTools) 4. Why does a studio that cost a couple of million dollars get away with using pirated software? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
