Thank you soooooo much for telling me this stuff! Thanks for puting in the extra effort for letting me know about the way recording works, cause I'm pretty serious about looking into that or symphony. It all sounds so cool. As you can tell, I was pretty dim on how it all worked cause it was all set in my mind that companies had their own studio, orchestra, ect. Keep up the good work!
Thanks, for all the info!
