    Would anyone be able to shed more light on what he means by "cabinet involvement"? He mentions in the next paragraph "the point at which the cabinet started to get 'involved' in the low end," but I'm not totally sure what that means.

    Yeah he sounds really knowledgeable but I can't understand anything. It's like every line is a inside joke. Wish I could understand it!

    Necro bump, but I guess the noobs should read it...... Maybe..... Mods?

    Are we keeping this secret? :D

    I keep a gun in my studio for times like these. I call it "MOTIVATION". It's a Mexican knock off S&W 6 shooter.

    Slipperman is great. It's like a glimpse into the future. :D

    there are so many very simple concepts that he's talking about that I'm not understanding. no wonder I hate recording anything distorted/heavy haha!

    I am going to cite some of you guys:

    "This guy Is an AE Encylopedia "

    "o this guy is a hero =) "

    "Man, this is deep."

    etc, etc.

    I do not share your fanboy opinions. This guy is mostly full of shit. Not that the doesn't know anything. Surely he does. There is some useful information in there. Sure. But most of it is a A BUNCH OF MEANINGLESS RANT. Most of it.

    His writing suggests that he is not interested in teaching anyone what he knows. If he did, it would be stating things clearly. Make nice diagrams. His discussion is to the contrary full of impenetrable profane laced rants which interspersed with just occasional, rare references to the topic matter. This rant is designed to make him seem smart and knowledgeable without actually providing much specific advice.

    All sorts of professions have these types of characters who invents their own language in an effort to seem more important and knowledgable than they are. These guys pop up in all sorts of professions. Most of the time they are nothing but posers.
