Musical Practice & Performance Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for musicians, students, and enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Was wondering if people would like to recommend their favourite resources for learning the skills of a recording enginer.

Free online courses or materials are preferred, but favourite books or paid classes would be great too.

I would like to do more recording, mixing and mastering but don't know a whole lot about it.

Perhaps your question fits the audio video production SE site? –  Ulf Åkerstedt Oct 17 '12 at 23:31
@UlfÅkerstedt AVP.SE is the right kind of site, but this sort of question is pretty broad and would probably get downvoted. But if it were more specific ("I'm interested in the recording process, is there a generally-recommended starting point?") I imagine it'd go over well. –  Warrior Bob Oct 18 '12 at 17:21
Sorry guys - didn't mean to break the rules. I am new around here! Thanks for being so nice in pointing out where I went wrong. Will try to improve in the future :) –  Fusilli Jerry Oct 18 '12 at 20:09
