I finally got into the mix room tonight, after weeks of waiting. Paul and I made a bunch of corrections to the mix, listening through headphones instead of to speakers, as we had been doing previously. We were tired and probably a little sloppy, but after a few hours work we'd taken care of the big items on my hit list, and I decided to call it quits. It's really hard to know exactly what will be heard on the film's optical track and what won't--I just have to draw the line somewhere and accept the outcome. Now I have to check the tapes one more time before transferring the sound to a magnetic track.
