knowledge is everywhere and in many forms. If you have money, time and interest why not buy all you can absorb?

Also it would be better to attend mixing courses than
to waste money on blindly accumulated plugins.

Hi. It might be worth just working your way through this series by the excellent Mike Senior. Amazingly it is now available for free! The book is great too obviously and lots of examples in his series for Sound on Sound too.

(Big thanks to Twangothan for bringing this to our attention.)

Oh also found this by the same guy...

This is also an interesting contribution to the recent discussions on the forums about the issues of recording in less than ideal acoustic spaces...

IMO - A formal class (with a "lab" in this case) is the best way to learn almost anything.


That said, Ill bet that most professional mixing & mastering engineers are either self-taught or had formal or informal apprenticeships, or otherwise worked their way up through the "school of hard knocks".


You probably do have to be careful about being "ripped off"... Paying way more than it's worth.


There is a community college here in Silicon Valley that had a recording studio and a variety of audio production classes. I don't know if that still exists (and I never saw the studio or anything) but community colleges are usually a bargain.


P.S.
Most musicians don't have college degrees in music either, if any "formal" music education at all. But, it probably does help if you're trying to get a job with a big city symphony.
