If that is in reference to my calling you a "newb" please do not be offended. Most of us here were one once. You qualify you see having used the term "confused" and having a sub 10 post count.
Neither age nor previous experiences qualifies you as any kind of expert here. I am in my 75th year and was an electronics technician all my working life but I was totally newbish about computers and home recording with them just a little over 15 years ago.
