What are your thoughts on the loudness war?
I think we're over it now. Like in the 80's, when digital reverb became available and everyone used way too much and then the 90s came along and we all went - 'Ugh! Hold on...' and backed off a bit.
Ultramaximisers were incredibly exciting when they first appeared and everyone went nuts. Now we've realised that actually they can really ruin a record and really loud, harsh, squared-off mixes sound a bit 'last decade'.
I'm waiting for people to get bored of that fucking ugly Autotune thing but it shows no sign of going out of fashion.
