    To be honest I probably could have done my grade 8 last year but I never got round to it with A-levels... and this year with work I never really got a teacher... hopefully I'll do it at uni.

    I really don't get your screenname. It's got some . . . interesting connotations.

    Im really interested in how sounds work, but more on the physical side. Im an aspiring producer, so I love learning how different sounds are made and the creative process involved, filters, compression, distortion, reverb etc..
    Im not so interested in learning scales and chord progressions. I should take some time out for it really..
    If you want to produce - the main quality required is a good ear. Ok there's a lot of technical stuff to learn - believe me if anyone ever tells you they "know it all" - they're full of ****. I've been in the business all my working life and I'm STILL learning - but to be able to make a good living from what you love doing - what a feeling.
    There's an old cliche for producers and sound techies - "if it SOUNDS right, chances are it IS right". There are myriad tutorials available telling you the "correct way" to do this or that - rubbish. Once you've learned the operational principles, (as you described above), the rest is down to experimentation and your own ear. A lot depends on the software that you use - cubase, sonar, gigastudio, e-magic logic - try to go for a "high-end" package that support multiple vst packs and samples. And don't use a separate loop creation tool - there can be import problems. The four I mentioned enable you to add/edit/mix loops "on the fly" and insert them into your projects. One more tip (if I may). Steer clear of general midi sounds when recording - they're dated and of a poor quality. It's worth investing in good-quality audio samples which you can edit to your hearts content.

    Too limited for what I do - great to learn on though.
