Hi there Bacon,
I don't work here, but I graduated in Musician Institute. In there they have all the basic knowledge you'll need to know about how to do recording in studio at the beginning. For example: recording in studio, knowing different mic types, placement of mic etc., And then moving on they start teach you how to use different outboard gears and mixing board. Of course they also teach Protools though out the entire curriculum. They are certified for protools training as well, so you can be certified. Afterward, when you get to the production part you will learn about all those good stuff about recording on the street, adding fx to sound tweeking them, just mess around with them like BelligerentSwan has said.

Just keep an open mind everything. All the opportunities are waiting for you, but you got to get your "training" done, before you reach that point.

Thanks! Yeah I know the basics - intermediate of recording for like bands and what not. But I want to learn Sound Design. I dont know what programs Riot is using either though.

RIOT! What Software do you use? FMOD, Unreal Engine? I dont know which to start learning.

THANKS!!!
