Re: Recording for Dummies?
There are tons of resources out there (including recording for dummies!). While a lot of people think there are forumlas for doing stuff (and there can be) it is really all about experimentation and getting the best sound any way that works. Doesn't matter how weird it is, if it sounds good, it's good.
I will reccomend the book "mix secrets for the small studio" though it assumes you have all the basics already. "Home recordingfor dummies" was actually quite a good start for me. But, as with anything, there is no replacement for experiance and knowing your equiptment! So dive right in and see what happens.
