Couple of small complaints...
I should preface this by saying I've got half a dozen mpv tutorials - and all are fantastic value, with very useful information. I can't wait for a rock mixing/pop mixing tutorial to come out.
But I have a couple of small comments on the mastering tut. There are a couple of typos - 1800's should be 1800s, since it's a plural rather than a possesion. (If it was shortened, it'd be '00s rather than 00's.) And on 'headroom demystified', there's a sentence including:
"to just equal it's highest amplitude"
- there shouldn't be an apostrophe in 'its'.
And the other thing - although this might be unnecessarily personal - is that Steve's voice is just a bit difficult to listen to on this particular tut. It sounds a bit patronising - like he's explaining to a group of children, and every single sentence he says rises at the end, like each line of dialogue is some fantastic revelation.
Obviously I don't intend this to be offensive in any way - it's just my particular taste that I'd prefer a naturalistic voiceover - like you were in a studio & explaining techniques to a friend as per the mixing electronica/R&B tuts.
No offense intended on either point - I appreciate what's being done by the mpv people and it's a fantastic resource for any musician or producer. And I hope you guys get over your various recent troubles asap. Now for that mixing commercial pop/rock tutorial!
