Some of the best sounding commercials we ever did, were done during a time
when our production guru started asking if he could watch the levels on a
scope so I rigged one on the output of the production audio board. Then he
got the itch to goto Alaska & no one else seemed to care, despite my stated
willingness to teach them. Now, we are all digital, and the levels are all
over the map. Sucks.
