Mixes made here include Phil Collins, Hot Chocolate, Holiday Rap, Fun Fun, and many more. The speakers
used on these mixes are the small ones on the upper shelve, called ROR's. They are a kind of "Auratones,
but with a passive filter to attenuate the mid frequencies.

After being complimented on several mixes by engineers at the abbey road studios in London, I decided to stick with this apparently successful way of mixing and monitoring for quite some time. Unfortunately ROR's are no longer made.

My parents where my biggest fans....They had to be, to avoid
going nuts with music 14 hours a day and musicians, rappers
and the occasional camera crew joining for dinner..................
