    Thanks Bob!  I was smiling and chuckling through your whole story.  And thanks for putting my mind at ease about not using a limiter.  When I mentioned it to a couple of mix engineers who do rock and metal, they looked shocked. “You don’t use a limiter?  Are you nuts? How do you get tracks to be loud enough then?”  I said, ummm, I just turn up the gain on my stereo system until my ears are bleeding and the dog leaves the room. Then I know it’s loud enough.
