I started out watching and still watch DoD videos, and usually find a nugget or two of useful info that I can absorb into my own philosophy. Most of his flavor notes/commentary are not very helpful to me, though, because he doesn’t use any RF, MF or NF, which are my primary brands.
My question recently has been: How can he tell he “nailed” a “remix” right off the shake? No steep time at all, and calls it almost perfect. Do experienced mixers just know how it will turn out? I can see that kind of knowledge/insight developing over time, but it doesnt seem very useful to new mixers, and he doesn’t explain it that way. Wayne rarely mentions letting something steep. Thoughts?
