Ok I've been planning on starting at (dread) fullsail in july when my lease runs out. I spent the evening with my mom (who will be paying the bill) and she doesnt want to see me go away blah blah and said if i wanted to she would GIVE me the 28 grand my time at fullsail would cost if i want to start a studio around here. This sounds really tempting to me. Problem: I'm 19 years old and have a digi001, a bunch ofplug-ins an average mic collection, and hardly no outboard. I feel like I get pretty decent recordings (I record a lot of shitty punk/hardcore bands). The only thing is I really dont know much when it comes to theory or electronics or any high end gear. I'm afraid of getting a bunch of stuff and still not having any real experience. I have interned at a local studio before and feel comfortable with the stuff but dont have any hands on type of experience. what to do what to do.... either way 28k of equipment plus my own 4k i have saved is making almost *giddy* woohoo! Just want to know what you guys think i should do.... AND PLEASE DONT TELL ME TO SAVE IT!!!!
