In a nutshell, I'm a guitarist of almost 40 years and a home recording newbie since the fostex 4 track. I've since gotten into a DAW. Interfaces but Some things I just don't know. And all the articles I read seem to make a jump over simple definitions of what I'm trying to figure out. For example, I'm starting to get my head around compression. But. Then someone goes off on "side chain" and "Aux Bus" and I'm left in the weeds. I want to learn, so where I can safely go ask questions? Last thing I want is to start a thread somewhere, and it turns into some engineers measuring wienies on the internet. Is there a forum somewhere that actually welcomes questions? I'd rather do without ones that continuously state "use the search function" and would rather one that has tutorials or stickies. So in the interest of being crystal clear. I want to be able to ask as stupid a question as I need to in order for ME to understand.
