i misspoke during the show. regarding the soundtoys compression product, i cited their "decapitator" plugin, which is indeed a fine plugin, but not the one i meant for this discussion. the plugin to which i meant to refer is called "devil-loc", and is their latest "audio level destroyer".

re: Rich's comment about learning an instrument. I took up piano lessons at 45 from an accomplished teacher who generally only took child pupils. My progress was sufficiently disappointing to her that when I asked for practice advice she said "give up!" ....we parted company and I went back to playing like I type... with 2 fingers.

Can old farts really learn an instrument like piano? (Or rather buy soundprism?)

@japansynth: don't give up! of COURSE you can learn anything you want! the problem, for "grown ups", is that we're not generally used to being really BAD at stuff, and so we're less likely to suffer through the painful times to get to those times that are more rewarding.

i am VERY disappointed in the advice you were given. if you put in the work (it doesn't just appear one morning....), you will find results and satisfaction.
