I really like these articles you've been writing!
So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy. Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life...

Another great piece of writing. As always, Brad, you make a tricky audio concept clear.

That is by far the best explanation of compression I've read. Well done, Brad!
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

Well done. Clear, concise and great metaphors. (now how do I get to the brick wall that seems to be all the rage nowadays...?)

Really enjoyed that, man! I've been eyeing off the Mr Black "Big Payback" compressor (I mean, it's called the Big Payback - that in itself makes me want it) and this helps me understand my urge to buy one. :) Good job.
