About TweakHeadz.com

 

 

Were you ever at a musical instrument store, wanting to pick up a piece a gear, but you aren't 100% sure it's going to be the right choice? You wait and pace around for agonizing minutes trying to get the store's sales help to give you a shred of attention. They finally do, and you realize their answer doesn't make sense to you.  In fact, you are starting to wonder if they know what they are talking about!  Sweat drips as you pull out the credit card, about to make a major purchase and an inner voice shouts out "Dude, what are you doing?". The clerk stares at you with the look of "hurry up, dweeb!" You either run from the store screaming "Why is everything so *bleeping* HARD, or pray to the gods you made the right choice.

At some stores you might get lucky and find an experienced, knowledgeable salesperson and might muse "if I could only listen to this guy all day I'd learn this stuff fast". Well here you can. You can read all of Tweak's conversations with others about gear going back years if you want. If necessary, he'll point you back to his articles if you need to learn basic concepts. You'll also find a lot of other people hanging out, some professional, some newbs and many in between.

Tweakheadz Lab and Studio-Central are affiliated with zZounds to bring you the ultimate online shopping experience for those interested in home studio gear. And its not just shopping. It's learning about gear as each forum is linked to tutorials, FAQs, reviews, How-Tos and everything else at the Lab! Finally, if all this isn't enough, Tweak's forums are about making friends, contacts, sharing tips, songs, and ideas. Tweak sez: I have actively participated on studio bulletin boards since the days of DOS and modems. I worked really hard and put a LOT of thought into creating what I think is the perfect online community for those who are have or are interested in recording with MIDI and Audio gear. I searched for a month for the right web host and message board package and I now have got it wired!

If you really want to learn about music technology, there is no better place!
