toby i have an idea for a challenge this year i dont know if its ok to talk about in this thread ?...but take a classic album and recreate the studio and use the same tools they did be it 4 track tape and commit and bounce..use only a plate verb or chamber that that existed in that time frame...example abbey road has 4 140 plates right now so even era of mono could factor in or the seventy's...first 2 inch machines...i think black Sabbath 1st record was 2 8 tracks linked
    sorta pretend we are tracking then bounce the tracks to the limitations we would have to been bound to?
    this would take us some research but man this could be a great experience
    we could even take it on a 3 stage class a decade a month?
    what do you think
