I am an audio/video editor and recording engineer with 5 years of experience doing things on a small budget, and what my experience has taught me is this:
1. Audio / video recording and editing, and the technology involved therein, has moved forward leaps and bounds in recent years and shows no sign of stopping. What was once impossible on a consumer budget is now simple and easy provided you have an idea about where to begin.
2. There is a lot to confuse the newcomer. The industry is full of jargon, some of which was invented by an equipment manufacturer to make their product sound special, and some of which actually means something. Also, people with experience in the audio and video worlds tend to be either tight-lipped about what they know, or unable to express it.
I think most people who’ve come into contact with the world of digital media sense that they have access to the tools they need (#1) but don’t know where to start or how to describe what they wish to fix (#2).
I hope to aid the newcomer through articles on this blog. So please, click around, and see if you can learn something new. If you can’t find the answer to your question or a solution to your problem, visit the questions page and ask me directly.
