RECORDING CONNECTION MENTOR
I actually went to a school. I am digi-design certified. Where I went to school I kind of, I hate to say this, I am not going to mention my school where I went but because I wish I had known about Recording Connections before I went to school. Where I went to school was sterile. It was a classroom, it was that. Everything worked perfectly, all the audio was perfect. All the teachers were perfect, everything was perfect. It was not perfect monetarily speaking. It was very expensive. It took me 2 years to go through there and I wish I had heard about and known about Recording Connections when I was a student. So yeah my backgrounds all live music, signal flow really isn’t an issue for me. That’s an important part of being in this business and learning what we are doing here and that’s a big part of it. So that part I had, That part was cool but knowing how studios work and how clients react to what you are doing and how other people in the room affect the client that’s in the booth singing and those kinds of things. Things you don’t get in school, you get in here though.
