it is not the same difference

flanging has an immediate perceived value for the client in that the 
resulting sound is produced as the tech is resting thumb against reel 
flange - client is impressed

xruns or other tech problems arise causing the client to wait around 
while the engineer twiddles around under the hood chasing down the 
problem - perceived value? none or deferred -- client is frustrated and 
if the problem reoccurs often enough is off to another studio

been working in or around pro studios since 1976 -- sorry but been 
there, seen all that
