What happened to our ears

I did a show not to long ago in 2012 with a big name act in the industry.I will not ever call names because I believe that no sound person should lose his or her job.
But I must say that some of you people have to go back to the basic .First I think
that some of you lost your minds with some of the things the Mixers can do today.
you doing to much ,Compressing and Gating on everything, too much.Then Plates 
Reverbs , Delays on everything,too much.Just think about when you did not have 
all those capability.You a Gate on your Kick,Sn,and Toms and you get your drums
sounding tight.Compressor on your Bass and Vocals and you made it warm. Then
you put it all together and came up with a nice sounding mix.But today I see Comps
Gates,EQ s inserted on all the channels REV s Graphs ,you get what I am talking
about.So on this show I was doing with a HUGE name in the game. The Sound company System Engineer was on his game ,when he finished Smarting the room
and system it was all that,what a balanced sound....The Artist took the stage and 
and the Band Eng,started to dale the band in,,,never really got it.The band sound
like they was in a tunnel ,but good Vocal.So I thought to myself he will get it,,,,,,
NOPE it never happened .I was so disappointed ,he left and thought his mix was
the shit and was happy with everything .Now mind you I heard this Engineer before
with another Big name Act,he was good with this other act. OK there was a opening
act.It was my turn......I told the System Eng,to put the system back to what he 
started out with,and he did.So the opening act was also a big name .So I started
with the main Vocal mic, not do doing much with the channel EQ s just some basic
high pass filter stuff ,minimum compressing ,I got a nice fat warm sound out of the 
the mic .Same thing with the band,and so we sound check for 1HR .The Promoter
of the event was at the board for both sound checks ,and in the middle of my sound 
check with Band and the Artist he ask the system Eng, why the Main act don t 
sound clear like this.I can see he did not want to toss anyone under the bus.
But this is what happened ,The main for the sound check as well as the show,
he did LISTEN to the room nor the system, he looked at the Smart program the
whole time. Guys Smarts and programs like it can be a great tool,,,,,,BUT don t
let it be the end all of your mix ,let it be your guide for problems with the room
and the system.Let your EARS be your guide.

Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
