Clint shot this video and edited it himself so a big thanks to him for taking the effort to share the results. The video quality isn't super spectacular as Clint grabbed a few minutes from the mix session he was on to record this but the audio samples are at high quality.

Clint Murphy is a highly regarded recording and mixing engineer and started his career at York Street Studios in New Zealand, he is now based in the UK.
