As I said in my original post, I have read the live manual, and do use if for reference. I also keep a youtube tab open to check for tutorials as and when I stumble on something. Problem is, being new to live & new to digital audio production, even if the info I need IS in the manual, I dont always necessarily fully understand what I'm reading... its a work-in-progress learning curve! And as with learning anything, it can often help having someone explain something using 'laymans terms' or other re-wording.H20nly wrote:^ that....
if a new "noob" section is created... it will essentially become this place of scorn or disdain from certain "PRO" users and trolls who aren't willing to help anyway. people will read their comments and eventually i predict that most of the people who end up posting in this "noob" forum subsection will all be... newbies to the forum rather than necessarily being newbies to Live.
i get why you're asking, cuz some people are fucking dickheads when all you want is a little help, but the odds of getting that guy who isn't are probably higher when you wade through the shit responses to get the good one rather than sectioning the forum off and hoping somebody strays into your comfy zone.
i think the thing to keep in mind here is that you should at least try to find the answer yourself. then, at bare minimum, you can at least say "i've tried x, y, z and can't find the answer to this question... any suggestions?" YRMV
I also don't think any 'pro' worth the name would scour a 'newcomers' forum just to berate our lack of know-how (shit, I wish I had that kinda time on my hands!) Yes you will always get some dick-shit trolling away, ,but that unavoidable. The fact is, and as your Quietman quote signature says, some people actually like offering a helping hand by imparting their knowledge to us fledgelings.
Being a 'newbie' (urrghh, there I said it) myself, I know I would feel plenty more comfotable if we had our own 'playpen' to bounce our silly questions around in!
Beginners forum please!!
