I shall call them like i see them.
I am known for this.
Just like my Father, I do not believe in politics.
Recorder man can kiss my ass!!!!! He appears as some "WANK" on the internet, without an identity.
If you want it for the music, bust ass! Never give up! Use your ears! (also "ALWAYS PROTECT YOUR EARS") If you have the passion and the talent, you will make a living.
If you want it for the money, "There is no money in the music industry." (A quote from a very good, talented, and successful man.)
I went to Full Sail, in 1984. I completed the basic course, and I started working in L.A. I had one major advantage; I lived here with my parents. I had two major disadvantages, I was 18 which in '84 was very young to be in a studio, and (for those of you who know) nobody wants to hire an attorney's son to abuse as a "Go-fer", especially when said attorney is a legend.
When I started, a degree in recording engineering did not existent. I took any class that could possibly have anything to do with The Reording Arts and Sciences.
Education is important!
If the music industry is really your passion, go for it. I had an engineer or two ask me if I finished my homework for my next class in the middle of a session.
There are a lot of wonderful people in the music business. We care about the music.
It is hard work, long hours, low pay, and very fulfilling (if you LOVE it)!
However, you may not want to listen to me. I am just some guy who was recording digitally at 100kHz and to 2" a dozen years ago, and I am not terribly impressed at the current "leaps and bounds" of the technological marketing.
Back to the salt mine. Music for life!
P.S. What should somebody do if they have a dozen years of samples and recordings at 96kHz? (not me, just some guy who is truly a mad man)
don't let the music die
