There are very vocal people with high post counts who do something totally else with their days... And may or may not have any clue what they're talking about. And don't be fooled: Many of the guys with the most "toys" are just weekenders with lucrative dayjobs. Many of the pros just have select "tools".
Course, there are a sh*t ton of pros who can't hear worth a damn anyway. (I probably fit into this last category... )
work in commercial studios and I did
try running a project studio. And I may
have a clue what I'm talking about. But I do
work a different day job.
Still, music (and recording it) is my avocation
, I did scores of projects back in the day [nothing all that special; a bunch of indie releases and more demos -- a couple of which that got folks picked up for majors or major/feeders] and have done many hundreds of recordings for myself.
But I discovered I don't have what it takes to work on others' music day in and day out and deliver my best. It might have been in me, once. But not anymore. So I leave that to you guys who are cut out
to be pros.
On the up side, while I like to shoot off my mouth, I also very much like to not be proven wrong
... so I try to be accurate when I do my mouth-off-shooting...
