LC2A3 started the thread "Steve Guttenberg: Are Mastering Engineers Overrated?"
Just watched his video and I tend to agree somewhat. If the recording is competently mic'd and mixed well, a mastering engineer, regardless of skill level, is not gonna have much impact on the recording itself. That's why they weren't credited during the golden age of hi-fi, it was a straight forward profession.
this should be fun

If it wasn't for STEVE, the Mona Lisa wouldn't be in the Louvre. It would be in STEVE's back yard in the Ell Lay sunshine. And instead of looking like...well...the Mona Lisa, the paint would look all cracked n' shitty. I know, because STEVE told me so, bucko.
