    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Can a children’s video game really teach anything valid—let alone valuable—about studio mixing? (And let’s be honest, adults love to play the game too.) Anyway, in Angry Birds, players use a slingshot to launch wingless birds at a variety of structures housing pigs. The goal is to destroy all of the pigs.
