    for all of those who are new to recording and audio gear, could someone explain the slang used in recording (ex: pre, pres, pin 3 hot)

    anyone up for that?

    and also the names of equiptment and what they do. (ex: compressor, phantom power, etc.)

    it'd be awesome if you guys could do that.

    Don't we have a glossary of terms already?
    I will look to see if we do ... and I will post back here with the results.

    There it is ... I knew we had one around here.

    Perhaps we can place a permanent link in the sidebar Chris?
