    Just listened to the first half of the show … was going for the whole thing while walking the dog and then it just started pouring rain. Go figure: rain in Vancouver. huh. :???:

    Brandon and Neil – thanks so much for the tribute to Derek at the top of the show. You guys are a class act.

    On that note, I’m looking forward to pay-ba… er… having you on IHR next week! It’ll be … “fun” (bwa ha ha ha!!!!)

    Cheers, D

    Hey guys, enjoying the show so far. I am a “bedroom bandit” home recording guy with a tiny bit of experience recording other artists. I’m still struggling with some of the basics after years as evidenced by the low volume of many of my mixes.

    Thought I’d drop you a line to say thanks for your efforts. I’m in the market for an HM-2 thanks to your last podcast, can’t help but love the Sunlight Studios sound.
