I have the feeling that I have more experience in my little finger than you do in your whole body about audio electronics..

i use google quite a bit to find audio stuff - mostly problem solving things.  when i do this, i often come across search results that are posts on that forum and most of the time, i simply can't believe what i see written there.  i'm sure there are others like it, but i've never seen anything like that in any other industry.  if i were just starting out and thought (or was told) that that was a great place to learn about audio and recording, i truly believe that i'd be in trouble for what i would be "learning".  sorry if this is harsh, but the poor advice and completely inaccurate "facts" being handed out on a what seems like daily basis over there just plain shocks me.

long live this wonderful place.

I imagine I would be run out on a rail over there.

But to be fair, the guy asking the questions has to start somewhere. We all did. I had to learn how to align an MCI multitrack in a week with no technical support whatsoever. I didn't even know what speed to record at or why. The first mix I did as a studio engineer was at 7 1/2ips Dolby A! I still get ribbed for that one.

What I do find sad is a general lack of respect for history and real technical acumen. I don't think that is a GS issue though. More of a cultural thing. It's not like we don't have some of the same voodoo thinking here once in a while.

I just started sharing my studio space with another guy.  I have a background of 'apprenticeship' in real studios with real engineers.  He does not, having probably learned much of what he knows from that 'other' forum.  I am amazed at some of the things I take for granted that he is not aware of, and at some of the basic things that he has had no exposure to.  He is, however, a bright and creative young guy and will undoubtedly make a great engineer if he decides to keep practicing the craft.  'Evolution' tends to make those kinds of decisions for us in the long run.

And in defense of GS re: JJ's original link, the advice that guy got was solid, to the point, and pretty consistent.  He could've done much worse.

I think the apprenticeship thing is the key, as illustrated perfectly here:

I just bought Olympic Studios in Barnes. Can someone tell me how everything in there works? I hope it sounds as good as my M-Audio FastTrack!

I just bought a Ferrari and I would like to race it next week. Can someone tell me what those pedals on the floor do? Do I ned to use all three?
And I've been told the round thing in front of one of the seats is for changing direction. Is this true?

Everyone has to start somewhere.

No one knows how to operate anything until they either figure it out by themselves, or someone teaches them.

I hope the poster gets it going well and enjoys it.
