ricknbokker Posted August 24, 2001 Share Posted August 24, 2001 Oy Vey...the trepidation!!! (subject shivers...) So, I quit the band. Granted, it was just a weekly therapy session with some old farts like myself 'gettin' our ya-ya's out', but I find that I will miss it more than I thought. I feel the vacuum that this situation causes, yet I also feel the anticipation of tackling something new. Anticipation not necessarily being a good thing. I am now pointed in a new direction, that is, an opportunity to involve myself in a new project that involves recording original music into the very device with which I am typing this post. I mean...give me a break! Holy cannoli! I am the master of the 'analog, lo-fi, low cost domain!!! What now??! Must I learn yet again the intricasies of a new technology while at the verge of what could be my creative peak?!! Radio Shack has been so good to me!! Why does this always happen to me?! Now I actually have to learn all these terms I see you guys spewing ad nauseum on these fine forums. Things like...DAW...hard disc...24bit converters...latency rates, and what not!!! (That last one scares me. Is that right?) The last plug-in I used was the vacuum cleaner!! Anyway, I would like to 'thank' the audio gods for sticking it to me in what is sounding like the most expensive, confusing way possible. Soon you will see many topics posted by yours truly, in which I will have to plead ignorance to what are surely the the most banal, basic concepts of this new 'realm' I find myself heading toward. Much like an out of control, small, rather unsafe vehicle...hurtling through the dark... destined to impact the hardest, most unforgiving object available to it's limited, terrified, and inexperienced operator... pleading for assistance from anyone who will listen... I won't die, though. That would only interrupt my suffering. Steve (NOT quitting smoking after all...) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
