hi guys- this seems like the best place to talk about this- i am 17- almost halfway through my A-levels. studying biology, physics, chemistry, Design Technology. i have no ambition of going to University, evennthough it seems like the rest of the world IS. i am not bothered about money much in life- just give me a decent guitar and amp and everything else can be second rate. so i am not looking particuly to make a bundle. most important thing to me- to like my job. i love music- rock, jazz, blues, classical, but most of all metal. i play guitar and am very commited. i dont have much ideas of how it is to be a sound engineer but id think id like it- always being around music and other people who love music- that would be a dream.......is it that good? apart from guitar skills i dont have anything a recording studio would want from an engineer though- how do i go about getting a job in one? there are about 6 or so local to me- hours drive away at most. so do qualifications help? or is experience more important??? i have a small knowledge of sound in general- you know- frequenceies decibels, different effects, some recording techniques and i can work cubase. are most sound engineering jobs in a studio gonna be computer based? is analog gone now? should i just learn computer recording? what should i do?!?!? start working as a tea boy and work up form that? go on a course? learn at home? help please- the world scares me!!
