Default Re: Where to start

It is not about if you picture yourself in a studio as a sound engineer. It would be the same as picturing yourself sitting in a space ship as an astronaut. These are highly skilled jobs, which require a lot of studying to learn all the basics before setting your foot into a studio or a space ship.

First, do your homework and learn, learn, learn. And not only which knob to turn in Pro Tools. Its about audio production, acoustics, electronics, software design, music, etc. There are plenty of books (way under a thousand dollar), you can borrow them for free from places called "libraries". Careful with YouTube videos. You can spend too much time ending up with wrong information if you don't know where to look for.

Did I mention learn,, learn, learn?
