"I worked with Apache Dropout to make a rock album that was raw, sick and wrong. We recorded and mixed at home using only analog equipment in various stages of disrepair. Despite our limitiations the mixes were suprisingly polished, but there were issues with the low end that you often encounter when mixing in an environment with less than ideal acoustics. Paul immediately understood the vibe of what we were trying to accomplish and he intuitively reigned in the low end and brought out the bite in the guitar without us even explaining what we wanted. The outboard compression and EQ used during tranfer seemed to raise to dynamic ceiling and it imparted a richer character across the whole mix. The plug-ins we used in the digital realm allowed us to carefully dip out some of the problem frequencies we couldn't deal with properly in the mix room. The record ended up sounding more vibrant and aggressive than most of the so-called rock and roll music I hear people making today."
