Hey guys I'm new to the forum. Pleased to meet you all. I've had a quick browse around and already I have seen a vast amount of knowledge flying about and some seriously experienced engineers who I know could help me. Funny as with most forums, I have also seen a lot of people who think they're sound engineers and aren't... Dead good My name's Dan, I'll hands up admit, I'm not that experienced. I've recently become a student of sound engineering and I have a lot to learn. I can say that I have REALLY good ears and I'm MUCH better at actually playing music than recording it but I want to know both sides. I've had about three years messing around with things and I have been informed of a schoolboy error. I don't bus my effects I just load them onto the channels.. (I know, awful huh) I was wondering if somebody could explain to me the best way to go about it maybe with some examples so that I can sort my life out Least I'm honest eh. Any help would be appreciated. Hope you're all well in your musical worlds!
