re-read wtf i just said.. u would have to log HOURS listening to f*cking white noise
i shouldn't have to say anything else after that
but basically i will say sae was bullshit for someone who wants a basic knowledge of how to make music..
my teacher was a tech-y guy who loved 70s music.. no joke one day i raised my hand and asked him how he knew so much stuff because he for some reason explained how a f*cking toaster worked to the whole class
he explained how he knew it, then he said thanks because he took my question as a compliment, a testament to his vast array of stupid-ass knowledge
what i mean is, if ur not one of those guys then that shit is not for u
what music schools do is they prepackage bullshit and sell it to u in the form of "THE ROAD TO YOUR DREAMS"
what i have learned is, u just go out and work and make your dreams come to fruition through planning and long term and short term goal setting
why do i say this?
ok u can go to SAE (school of audio engineering) and pay some asshole $9,000 to make u memorize 10 pages of microphones, or the fcking sound frequency of a tremolo (NOT EVEN KIDDING) or make u listen to white noise like u have nothing better to do with your saturday
OR u can take half that money- get on the internet, figure out what u need to buy, buy it, then start making your album
there is no right way to get to your dreams
these schools want u to think their way is the way to success, but they just limit u, make u feel like everything u do is wrong, make u feel like if ur not doin it like this or that that ur not relevant
the way to success is prayer, planning, goal setting, and accomplishment
so for me
music is MY thing, i refuse to allow anyone to tell me anything about it
i would rather go to school and work and do things completely out of the realm of music, than be in music and have my beloved hobby raped and devalued and deemed worthless by some idiot in a suit who has no understanding of what i'm attempting to do in the first place
