Massenberg invented the Parametric EQ as a senior in college. He built a large recording studio in West Los Angeles that was best of the best (GEORGE MASSENBURG: The Equalizer 1997). I ended up working with a project called; Suburban Tea Room and they were heading into this amazing studio.

David Devore has worked with Fleetwood Mac, Santana, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon, Grateful Dead, just to name a few (David DeVore Credits 2015). So this guy has been around and obviously knows what he’s doing in the studio.

    ” Will believes that “the general shortening of sentences reflects, in part, a change in nature of Inaugural Addresses.” He refers to Teddy Roosevelt who called the presidency “a bully pulpit.” Later addresses have had an incentive to tell Americans how to behave with phrases such as “The only thing we have to fear…” and “Ask not…” A more popular phrase which was used by Kennedy and Nixon was “Let us…,” which according to Will means, “For Pete’s sake, pull up your socks and shape up.” The…
