This got me thinking about an older article/interview David Farmer did for designingsound.org. In it, he talks about how he doesn't use headphones while recording source. It's a...

Re: Pro Tools 11!

Interesting, I saw that too. I'm looking to upgrade my whole home setup and am debating on a MacBook Pro, iMac, or just running with my currently beefed up PC. I think I'm going to go PC first and see how far that gets me.

Re: Man of Steel sound (probably spoilers)

Yea, that world engine sounded great! Really loved the energy of it. I thought a lot of the ships sounded really great too.

It would be incredibly neat to try and get some of the designers onto these forums to talk about what they did. It was a really fun film!
