Incredible, thank you. Ill be sure to go through everything when I get home, there's so much information contained within these threads that's just begging me to read :D

It's all well and good for me making some tunes, using samples, playing about to create sounds, when it comes down to it, I'll never make anything that great without properly delving into and learning how sound design and synthesis works, so hopefully this will provide me with a basis to get more involved and to expand my knowledge :Q:

But yeah, if this isn't stickied, I don't know what should be :|

wub i often picture u as a dude spending hours and hours on the daily with some kind of textedit app open and his fingers in copy paste position with eleven tabs of dsf-google and a quest in mind...

thank you, a very few of us would search that much... and i thought it was useful :D
