    Hey guys, we recently got our masters back for our debut jazz/fusion project, and had them done by a guy that does a lot of metal and rock. We told him to treat it like a rock recording, and do a lot of hard compression and leveling to the whole thing, and I think the whole thing, for what it was, turned out great! Here's the opening track.

    It was a bit of a gamble, but I think it paid off really well, especially during the keys solo. Anybody else give their jazz/fusion stuff the "loudness" treatment in the mix? Were you happy with it?
