LOL, Nilton. Although he misses off the important point of paying no attention to the musicians around you!

Awake!
Sometimes I run in an old, known trap. Spent hours and failed with the recording.
Why?
I haven't used the most important recording rule:
"Garbage in - Garbage out".

Ok. I learned a lot yesterday. It is sometimes helpfull to record garbage. No one would know if I don't talk about it.

I will pin a little reminder next to my console. "Garbage in - garbage out. Save your life time"

Does garbage know it's garbage, that is the question ;)

Anyway, I still remember the original post here, and I also remember how happy I was to see that you deleted it... some things are better left unsaid, and if you must say them, it is better to shout them into a pillow or, maybe, write it on a little note and stick it to your console :)

That was no waste.. You realized something and you honed your skills, that is never a waste
