Sometimes, it’s fun to tinker with technology to see what makes it tick. Take something apart, reconstruct it, see what turns on and what explodes, etc. This is certainly the case with digital audio. There’s a whole galaxy of digital audio recording effects, techniques, and equipment, that creates an impalpable hurdle that can overwhelm the most determined musician and his music.
Fight through it. Find help. There are many online forums that specialize in digital audio home recording frequented by musicians who love to share both their music and their wisdom.
The Homerecording BBS was my chief point of advice, comfort, and commaradery during some dark times when I was a complete newbie.
Now, the MT Forums have taken that role. Please forgive the delay between posts as I struggle to understand this new medium. 😉
