the resources thread: share 'em here!

hi guys,

every now & then i've come across a post somewhere which deals with a question raised here - e.g. the recent one about running 2 soundcards from one pc. well, the interweb blesses us repeatedly with a wealth of information - some of it fantastic, some of it a bit dubious. either way we all have favourite sites, FAQs, forums, communities... and hopefully this can serve as a temporary home for some critical linkage, because there's *so* much information out there.

for the moment, a very tentative suggestion might be to split your links into three categories:

- Forums
- FAQs
- Downloads

thus a great freeware reverb would go under the 'Downloads' section, a useful DMA guide under 'FAQs', and a tight-knit japanese synth architect community under 'Forums'...

i'll start the ball rolling - it would be great if one day we could build up an archive of helpful resources...

FAQs

- http://www.tweakheadz.com/guide.htm - this is something i found invaluable... from starting out to mastering, it covers damn-near everything and seems to do a pretty good job. 9/10 for sheer breadth of coverage.

- http://www.soundonsound.com/forum/postlist.php?session=05649c93e2b5d181445b01458bc2abd1&Cat=&Board=PCMusFAQ&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o= - Martin Walker's entire 'PC Music FAQs'. i'm only just getting into most of these but they seem to be pretty good...

Forums

- http://studio-central.com/phpbb/index.php - this is the forum attached to Tweakz guide above. annoyingly, you can't refer to products sold anywhere apart from Zzsounds, but other than that i found it invaluable - lots of good people, detailed advice etc.

- http://www.soundonsound.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?session=05649c93e2b5d181445b01458bc2abd1&Cat=&C=2#2 - soundonsound's discussion group frontpage... plenty of stuff here!


will post more once i get home & have access to my favourites folder!

hugs
