Mixers do cool things. They balance voices out. They mix voices together to make a nice, cohesive sounding wave file that you can listen with ears! They’re pretty neat. Every song that is available on Spotify has been through a mixer. If they didn’t, you would hear an unbalanced soup of instruments, vocals, and probably the background noise of a fire engine coming to put the obvious fire that is being spit into the recording. Mixers are cool!
However, have you ever looked at one? They’re not that intimidating--oh god. What the hell does those knobs do? There are little levers? What happens if I push this button? Does it start recording everything?

It’s Oscar season--we can talk about past Oscar winners.
