    I recently decided to write an article on things I wished I learned sooner about audio engineering, in it I talk about a few things that would have saved me a lot of frustration! It received a really great response so I decided to start a blog where I can share more of my ideas.

    Check out "Things I wish I learned about audio engineering" here,
    Things I wish I learned sooner about audio engineering – Audio Hertz

    Check out the second part here,
    [More] Things I wish I learned sooner about audio engineering – Audio Hertz

    I'll be sending out a newsletter once every 2-3 weeks. If you're interested please sign up!

    Hi David. Maybe I'm off base here, but it seems spammy for a guy from Astoria, New York to be posting self promoting links in the Denver Audio Engineers Meetup page on Facebook.

    I apologize for spamming my free educational blog.

    Looks like a mod moved the thread, so that's resolved.
    One of the most overlooked skills is the ability to run a session smoothly
    I've noticed that when I track with other people. If I goof up a take, it's incredibly frustrating to wait 10 or 15 seconds to try again while they do ... something with protools.
    I'm so used to: hit stop. Hit undo. Hit record.

    I'm pretty sure the period key will stop the recording and delete the file so you don't end up with a bunch of tiny audio files of aborted takes.

    Well, one just needs to put up a small fee to read all the AES. But a lot of that has been out in the Public over the years.

    I think every client is different and the skill is knowing how to figure out what type of client you're working with. If I record someone like you that wants to just do new takes as quickly as possible, then I know I should have everything set up and ready to go; extra tracks, inputs and effects set properly, before we even start recording.

    Thanks for reading!

    You should try some tracking with a tape deck...there's always some time to kill in-between the rewinding.
    TBH...I actually enjoy those pauses..'cuz you get the opportunity to think on things for a moment or two, take a few breaths, or take a sip of coffee, or whatever...and after awhile, you settle in to that kind of pace.

    15 seconds is pretty unbearable, but is it too difficult to let the tracking run

    Yep . . . exactly.

    Make a mistake . . [SPACE] [Ctrl Z] [Ctrl R] and you are off again.
