All interesting stuff this.

Looking at it though and coming as I once did from the commercial world I cannot imagine anyone (clientwise) sanctioning the time much less the money to to this commercially.

As a monkey (engineer - now called an op) you would be yelled at, threatened and viilified for anything you tried to add to a session through physical editing - I just don't understand who would pay for such operations now when one can use a computer now and to much greater effect.

"Ops" in studios typically earn around 1500 - 2100.......a YEAR!

Tape Op (monkey in the UK) is no longer a recognised skill.

Thanks for the valued input

I did this Udemy course a couple of years ago and found it useful just for DIY knowledge
