    Easy guys, I've always been pretty interested in the technicals of sound engineering but to be honest i don't know a thing, but i would like to. Anyone know any good websites/books that could teach me a thing or two?
    Wasn't sure where to put this in the forum so sorry for any inconvenience.

    Thanks in advance for any helpful responses.

    production forum is the right point i guess.

    just learn your way around daws, synths and samples...

    My first thought when thinking 'sound engineering', refers to Hardware studios, microphone placement, room acoustics and live instrument recording etc, if thats what you are interested in, your best bet is to get into a studio, maybe as part of a course (cheapest and easiest way for studio time), but if you are only interested in digital audio engineering, then stick around here as groelle suggested :) and look on YouTube for tutorials

    Mixing Audio: Concepts, Practices and Tools by Roey Izhaki - slightly threw me into the deep end but has a shitload of info and is quite easy to read. good examples and comes with a CD of reference tracks.
