There’s been some discussion over on the EQ Forums about what it would take to resurrect the EQ Forums to their former glory…and to ultimately support EQ Magazine which is also trying to regain its stature.
I can’t help but notice that there are many people here that do record occasionally or that have a decent (or really decent) project studio rig and they do recording on a regular basis.
But too often, questions/threads specifically pertaining to the recording business, recording techniques and recording gear…are posted on the more specialized forums (Guitar Player, Keyboard…etc).
And while those threads/topics receive some action there…they also tend to get lost amid the countless forum-specific topics.
As a longtime member of the MP Forums and someone who can remember how active all of them use to be in the early years… I would like to ask all of you newer members (and you old-timers too) who are active “recordists” and studio owners…to please give the EQ Forums (Use Your Ears Forum, Acoustics Forum, Project Studio Forum, Surround Professional Forum) some special attention and start posting your recording/studio specific questions there.
And even if you are not yet recording or own any studio gear…your participation on the EQ Forums just might be the ticket that gets you involved in the very satisfying world of music recording!
There are always a few knowledgeable people there…and of course, JJ Blair is truly a wealth of pro-level knowledge…and IMO…an untapped resource.
I know he too would love to see more participation on the EQ Forums!
More participation on the EQ Forums will:
1. Bring some life back to those ailing forums.
2. Concentrate the same type of topics in one area.
3. Bring more similar minded people together in one location…allowing for greater and faster dissemination of information and ideas pertaining to recording and studio gear.
I am posting this thread on the other individual forums…and I will be bumping it up occasionally.
Let’s make February the EQ Forums month!
(OK…that sounds kinda’ corny…
… but really, your participation is most welcome and very needed!)
