Below are examples from your posts:
((LOADS OF QUOTED POSTS...))
So you can do CAD but you can’t be bothered to learn Logic and the interface(s) software and you spend lots of money on building a room within a room, yet again Cart before horse.
As I said in one of my replies to you, you really need to familiarise yourself with Logic first, either by doing the spade work yourself or pay someone to give you personal tuition.
I know in todays fast-paced world, it is difficult to find people who take even a few seconds to listen. I see you've put in the effort to respond, and you even seem to take a genuine interest. I am genuinely grateful. I also don't think you're wrong. I admit if all you could see were my posts on this forum, I'd probably think I had a scorching case of attention deficit disorder.
However, if I may... the truth is more somewhere in the middle. This is all a learning experience. The last few weeks have been an information bomb! Since I do not have the extra time or financial resources to just drop my job and attend a structured audio engineering course, with a syllabus, project, and a comprehensive curriculum that I can follow... I kind of have to carve out the path myself. At first, I thought I really need to learn every nook and cranny of Logic Pro X. Then I saw some videos and read some articles that fed me a lot of viewpoints on how native stock plugins are garbage and if I ever want to get a a cohesive and smooth mix, a hybrid DAW + analog outboard gear is how it's done.
So here I am posting questions about Logic Pro X... then about what some boutique hardware compressor does. I've also been drawn in by some savvy marketing into thinking that a new ADC/DAC/Audio interface might be where I need to start. So... <deep breath>... I'm in my mid 40s now. I have no dreams of releasing records or becoming the next Sir George Martin. I just want to step off the merry-go-round that audio can easily become, and build a solid... physics-based, relatively "future-proof" understanding of audio. It has taken me a few posts and quite a few frustrated evenings behind my monitor with Logic... but I think that I am finally beginning for form, sort of... my own curriculum for learning audio.Course 1 - The recording/mixing space:
Learn all I can about how sound pressure waves behave within an enclosed spaceCourse 2 - Monitors:
Taking what I've learned from learning about sound pressure waves, I want to learn about which monitors would be best for my physical space and how/where to set them up to most accurately let me hear what I am/have recordedCourse 3 -The sound source:
Now that I have a room where I understand how sound waves are behaving, and I can accurately hear those sound waves interacting... I want to learn about things like... guitar amplifiers... guitar string gauges... how P-90s sound through a Vox amp vs. a Fender... are software amp modelers a viable solution yet, or is there honestly still (no snake oil) no way that software can recreate a mic'ed guitar amp... (obviously... Course 3 is a f*****g rabbit hole, for sure!!!) Course 4 - Capturing the sounds:
Audio interfaces, Pre amps, Microphones, microphone placement, hardware signal processing vs plugins... Stock plugins from Logic vs. boutique 3rd party plugins. Course 5 - Mixing:
If anyone is still reading this... I understand... being lonely is difficult. She'll text you back... I'm sure of it. ;-)
Hopefully MOF, you kind of get where I am coming from a little bit more. I would love to hear more about your... back story.
