Are there less newbie questions here now?

Wait until a couple days after Christmas...

Yeah right!

"Noobs" HAVE changed since I joined HR. We now get peeps asking "I have an Apollo and 6 Pultecs in a rack with some Neve pres and I am having trouble getting it working with PT".

THAT ^ is not a NOOB! But a rich t**t trying to freeload information when he should be employing a tech!



People are using youtube more and more to find answers from so-called 'experts'. It's easier for them to watch than to read.

I joined this forum about a year and a half ago and have been the biggest procrastinator ever. I bought some gear, downloaded Reaper, futzed with it a little, and had good intentions, then life gets in the way.

Had to move a bunch of junk out of a spare bedroom to get that room set up and all that junk landed in my misic room / studio. Really hard to get inspired to go in there with stuff all over the place and in the way. It's some good stuff I don't want to throw out but no place else for it so I surrendered to it. I'm great at planning but suck at execution, so I am HOPING to get off my dead ass and get sorted SOON. When I do, I will be back here with lots of questions I'm sure.

I still get on here daily and read alot of posts and listen to tunes in the clinic. Even when I'm not actually doing any recording, I'm still learning by osmosis. I have an acoustic in a stand next to my easy chair, and reach for it about twice a week to fiddle with some ideas, or play along with the tv commercials. Occasionally I come up with an interesting rif or idea and will record it on my iPhone just so I won't forget it. My wife hounds me to get back to it with the music, but my day job is very stressful and I'm worn out by the time I get home.

I'm going to stop whining and being lazy and get myself straightened out, at least I keep telling me that, and when I do, I hope to contribute more here. I still think this is a great site!

Youtube, facebook, and google searches in general have greatly diminished the role ALL forums seem to be playing online in the past 10 years. I don't suspect this trend to change either. :-/
