And where were your fancy new-fangled flying faders when Pink Floyd
mixed down Dark Side of the Moon?  Nowhere to be seen.  They did it
old-school, with each member of the band standing around the mixing
console, each with several fingers full of faders, and mixed it on the
fly.  One of the last great recordings to be mixed this way.  Not a
one or a zero anywhere to be found, and it's one of the most
incredible records ever made.
