Get off your asses and swing by www.freq20.com Not just saying this cause i'm a mod there - there's a bunch of great people on board, and a lot of subforums for different recording software. lots of info on recording techniques, the basic aspects of mixing, experiences, patches, what have you! subforums for instruments, amps and pedals too (mentioning givson and stranger will result in an asskicking by yours truly - j/k). so stop by and drop us a line! heck, drop us 5! see ya.
