Hello people, i just need your advice, i've been thinking about getting into a music institue here in europe (barcelona) to learn you know, everything about the sound, midi, mixing, master, producing etc. It's a 9 or 10 month course, maybe a year (but i dont think so). the fact is, i was thinking about, instead of spending like a 2500$ or 3000$ in that course, buying some books (and equipment) about what you people (in the forum) think a new recording man should learn about everything, the basics maybe or something more advance. I'm new on recordings but very old in music songwritting. So, what you all recommend to me?, thanks for your help!
