Avoid Forums like the Plague!

The Internet is a living hub of information, right at our fingertips, and right at the centre of this information hub is the communal area, the message board, forum, comment thread, or whatever form it takes.

When you're researching your next piece of gear for a studio, these seem like a good place to go. And they are, for one reason that I'll touch on later. But on the most part, like anything, don't believe everything you read within these forums. In fact, in some cases you can't believe anything you read.

Why I use an Apple Mac computer

Cue flame thread.

I did do a post on this on the previous incarnation of this blog, but didn't copy it over as its been a while since then and I only love my Macs more. I'm not a complete Jobs fanboy, I don't think they're the be all and end all of computing. I recognise the flaws and some of them even annoy me. Luckily, there's enough good things to keep me here.

Audio Myths Workshop - WATCH THIS

This is the most important video you'll ever see.

I've provided a permanent link on the "Pages" tab right over there ------>

Enjoy ;)

Do your converters suck?

I bet they don't.

There's a constant rat race amongst beginner recordists, who always ask for "the best". What is the 'best' microphone/preamp/interface/computer/DAW etc. And they always end up with answers which basically say "Come back when you have $3000".

Its not necessary.
