    Do I hear traffic in the background of the guitar mic all over the song? Yes…yes I do.

    Somewhat hard to follow

    We see a creative expert making intuitive decisions. Hard to learn from, because the explanations are sparse, much scrolling around, and there is not much A/B comparison. I couldn't learn much from that.

    What the heck happened at 20.24. He didn´t do anything but the delay time changed big time.

    Tony is an expert n his achievements r outstanding. This beign said, this "tutorial" is POINTLESS: He sets da goal of maintaining da feel of da original demo n he doesn't even consider da option of building da mix from it, perhaps he didn't feel it... Instead he strugles 2 match it's tone n FAILS 2 SHARE A CLEAR EXPLANATION of all da stuff he throws in. Spent 30 minutes here n learned we need 2 do a good DUE DILIGENCE before choosing a tutorial

    Tony Mixed everything with the ATR-102 on the Mix Bus, but he never showed the settings so not sure if it has eq bumps and where. Would be helpful to know.

    First video I had to stop watching because it just wasn't good. It's a lot of squinting to follow the mouse around while he's tweaking settings. No explanation what he's doing other than looking for that "magic". I don't doubt Ben Stein's mastery, but I'd like to know what he's doing technically and why. PureMix is great but this video is not worth $45. It's not educational. Plus this song is the audio equivalent of the Seinfeld scene where Jerry and his GF call each other "Shmoopy". They torture terrorists with this song. I still love you PureMix, I'll be back Shmoopy.
