Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
Well, I think you can learn both simultaneously: you'll learn the features of your DAW better and better the more you use it, and you'll learn production and engineering techniques as you're using your DAW. There's plenty of information available to teach you the basics, such as Alan Parson's...
I’m well aware that there is a very, very wide range of feelings these days about “opening up” and particularly about holding events. I try to be respectful of all such feelings. So in light of what you said above, I feel I should ask if you would have a problem with me or other forum...

Can we adjust the timeline to cover the entire month? If so, I can add this to the thread -- the JHS Bender Tone Bender clone, which sounds massive:
You can hear the above rig kick in at the 3:10 mark:
Here in Texas, we may be neanderthals -- but we're well-groomed neanderthals. Our barbershops opened up last May. Which is good, because my wife would kill me if I went the bald guy with a ponytail route. ;)
