Cris Cohen: Do you think with a lot of modern day recording there is too much emphasis on perfection?
Jim Weider of clients The Weight Band: Yes, I do. A lot of that is because of technology. Now you’ve got 48 tracks of Pro Tools, and you can overdub endlessly. You cut all these tracks, then you have to go in the studio and mix and make decisions. Back when we were using tape, you had 16 tracks and you made your decisions immediately. It was no cut, paste, cut, paste, cut. There was a little bit of editing and that was it. There weren’t a lot of endless decisions. That can be a nightmare. Technology can hinder you if you let it, if you get sucked in.
