XTRAMIX seems to have supplanted the SSM in a lot of racks. As always 
there is a tradeoff between functionality and compactness.

The Speck mixers have been in vogue among L.A. session players. I 
bought mine from a film composer who was moving to New York.

I've worked with Pamela Z and Laurie Anderson as well, though not to 
the extent of the work with PO and DG.

Over the years I've collaborated with quite a few amazingly talented 
women (and gay men too, for that matter). I generally prefer to keep 
the gender energies nicely balanced.

I agree.

No comment.
