My idea of amazing: the gear works, the engineer has great ears, skills, and can work quickly. I like the recording process to be as invisible as possible so everyone can concentrate on their job without delays or extraneous conversation. Hal Winer has engineered many of our sessions -- he has huge ears, and a high degree of integrity. He seems to only want one thing which is to make everyone involved happy, comfortable, and leave with the knowledge that the work sounds as good as it can, and he works endlessly to get it great. Consider me a very happy customer.
