But seriously, I just listened to the first one.  I thought I had a pretty 
good mix before I recorded it, and looked at the waveform.

After chasing a better looking picture as much as anything else, going back in 
the opposite direction as depicted on one of those brick wall rant sites, 
more toward how things used to look in days of yore, I have to say the 
difference is immediate and obvious.

I'm not an audiophile, and I barely (as in not at all) know what any of this 
technical gobbledeblabber is about, but I can definitely say the brick wall 
take sounds like shit.  Pure, steaming shit.  This third one is enormously 
better, though now I'm starting to hear things in the trumpet that make me 
think it might still be up too high.  Now that I can hear the trumpet as a 
discrete voice.

Interesting.  I have no intention of learning anything about this crap, but 
it's nice that this list bludgeoned me in the head and made me learn 
something in spite of myself.
