Mr Mew, I mentioned you earlier in this thread because you would be able
to clarify something regarding Abbey Road practice.
I've read that, when cutting lacquers at Abbey Road, the actual mono and
stereo remix tapes were used, without going through a secondary master
to which EQ, compression, limiting and so forth had been applied - the
preferred practice being to apply those to the audio signal between the
playback tape machine and the cutting head circuitry. Is this in fact
the way it was done?
