I'm sorry if posting from another forum is out of line. If it is, please delete this.

This is a really long post I found on the Cockos website while checking out the Reaper forums. It's about how to get a great sound just using your own ears, and there's a lot of good information.

The author is Yep.

Very helpful so far! thanks for the link.

Edit: Wow. this is really great stuff. page 2 he starts talking about more "creative" aspects and...well i won't give it away :P if anyone has time though, this is worth a read. Looks like a 35ish page post.... sooo. I'm all but ignoring any of the posts besides what yep says. Many of them are just creating more problems anyway

this post is epic

update> im on page 3 and my mind has been blown about 15 different ways from just the info as well as the insight into the mind of home recordists

and must i note that the poster uses steak as an analogy for a bit... MM also uses steak in his tips section

some kind of weird sound-meat connection the rest of us dont know about?!?!?!

haha! i noticed that. Maybe the secret to making it in the music industry is hearty, manly, red meat.

I'm on page...6-7 or so. Around compression. I need to slow down and focus on some more creative aspects, then come back to this as a refresher soon. I have a feeling i'm blowing threw it too quickly sometimes and not retaining enough. This post really is incredible. It seems like he's touching on everything.
