"The standard studio norms are not what make great records, as a number of great records have proved… @itspetergabriel had definitely concluded that the most important thing was the quality of the performance...And not just musical performance, because the engineers are performing too. Mixing is a performance, it's a show, and the quality of that performance is very much dependent on the environment. So we had to make a place that was a great space to perform in.” Mike Large COO Real World
