Given that you've been creating music from Portastudio days and through the rise (and rise) of digital recording, how much of an effect has the progression of tech (especially in affordable home recording) had on the way you each go about songwriting and ultimately putting together your albums?
I'd love to know where you balance what's done in home production set-ups with bigger studios, what sort of gear you work with where, and where along the line people like Pat Dillet get involved. Are you take half-recorded tracks in to rework? Are you fiddling with mixes and such away from the studio? And are there any production techniques from the 80s that you still rely on, or recent techniques and effects that you avoid?
(Also, please come back to Australia some time soon, we miss you!)
