The Age Poll - Old Skool / New skool?

I think it'd be interesting to see the age span of the forum.

Cheers,
Rich

33 yrs. Turn 34 next month. I just got into recording about a year ago, so I must be a late bloomer.

Dunno what happened to my vote, it's there now though.

I'm 26, 27 in October.

P.S Iguanas can live up to 20 years apparently...

Cheers,
Rich

55. Kate Wolf used to say, "Gee, I haven't seen you in a coon's age" - now we can say It's been an iguana's lifetime. I'm working on my third!

You do the math...

I recorded my first band in 1961. I was ten years old at the time.

Hmmm. I got my first Sony 464 recorder at 15. You were born ten years later? No wonder there are so many newbie questions here! Is there respect for elders? The first pair of mics I got still work, too! Made my first record in 1967 in high school.

I edited audio tape with razor blades for 30 years before digital became practical. You don't know what it was like, and never will!

Codger out.

Interesting point.

Do the newbies to the board respect the answers of more experienced engineers who hang out here or are they just looking for an internet argument or to be told they can sound like Mutt Lang just by buying that new Behringer comp that they would have bought anyway?

And I must say that my most respected elder (by only a couple of years) is Bob Ohllson. I listen to what he says avidly, and take it to heart. He was making million sellers when I was recording the high school choir on quarter track!

Teach your children well...

im 21 and i came to this site on a recomendation of one of my friends who told me that older professionals hang out here.

i think that experience is the best teacher (also that lady from the graduate, that kind of teacher is cool too ;P) and that the "old dudes" here have lots of experience. i appreciate this board, because it gives me the best access to ask people whose opinions i care about: people that make good records.

May I welcome Michael Jackson to the gearslutz forum.

So, after your court ordeal what mic/pre chain are you planning on using on your new child star you've just signed to your personal record label?

heh

none of your effin' business!

i grew up listening to reel to reels (i think that's what they were called), 45's, and 33's long before even cassettes were invented.
i'm also a late bloomer, i got into recording only about three years ago.

let's just say i'm "forty plus"...

I think a lot of the newbies would say, "who is Mut Lange"
