Read This! The Tutorial "Master List"

Greetings! I'm posting every good tutorial thread/webpage that I know of in here and I'll keep it updated as new ones come to my attention. Feel free to post some links in here and I will add them to the master list, but please do not post entire tutorials (or irrelevant comments) in this thread because the idea is to keep it as clean and concise as possible so people have one place to go for information. If you've got a kick-ass tutorial, please create a thread or a webpage, give me a shout and I will add it!

I hope that everyone - but especially those new to producing - can find something in here that's useful to them.

For mastering, there's the Ozone Mastering Guide - it's specific, but it's pretty easy to apply the concepts of the program and mastering in the guide to other plug-ins and applications. I uploaded it to yousendit.com over here, if someone could host it that'd be awesome:

http://s24.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=...AZ1T21QR7L5NBWE

I'd also include a link to KVR under Synths - that's where I send everyone for synths and plug-ins. Speaking of - add a plug-in section. I know a bunch of random sites to get some awesome (and free) VST effects.

That's a good thought. I think it's best implemented with a separate plug-in thread (since it's a huge topic in and of itself), and I will post a link to that thread near the top of the "synths" section (and change the heading to "synths/effects/plug-ins" perhaps). How does that sound to you guys?

Ozone mastering guide appears to be available online at izotope's site... I will add that to the list.

Hey. Great layout on this FAQ. Isnt of huge use to me but I'm pretty sure that if I didnt already know just about all of it, it would be an easy to follow tutorial list. You might also add my hardware thread on there. It badly needs a good update but I think its a decent single page resource. Just a suggestion though .

Cheers,
Zac

Updated! Oh, and may I suggest adding the Mackie Control products to the MIDI controller section, because they kick ass (I'm saving up for one right now).

Hey. No problem there . I had completely forgot about Mackie's controllers . They defininatly have good stuff . In the next update of the thread, I should have a lot better pictures plus a bunch of new stuff.

Cheers,
Zac
