Mike Prestwood Smith interviewed in Resolution Magazine - we asked him how he got into mixing movies?
"When Goldcrest Films built their downstairs facility in Lexington Street in the early 90's they bought a very expensive Synclavier and needed someone who knew how to use it, and so they hired me. That really was the beginning of my period drilling down in terms of learning post and, although I recorded a lot of ADR and foley, I also did quite a lot of complicated sound design for film, and finally started mixing more high-profile TV dramas. Soldier Soldier, Playing the Field, Silent Witness and quite a lot of Hallmark-type mini-series are what springs to mind. The time challenge on that stuff was quite tough so you had to learn to think on your feet, you learn what works – and what doesn't – pretty quickly ..."

Waves Audio Smack Attack, reviewed by Russell Cottier in Resolution Magazine : "In general use, the plug-in is very effective as a creative tool for mangling sounds such as drum tracks and vocals, and it is a great tool for sound transformation: creating a pad sound from acoustic guitar, for example ........ Certain other plug-ins offer some level of transient shaping – for example Izotope Neutron – but the level of detail in shaping the transients, and (arguably more importantly) the sustain controls, are not offered elsewhere." ...
