I just recently aquired a M-Audio Fast Track pro mixer as well as a recording software called Sequel by steinberg.
Unfortunately, I feel like an idoit because I really don't know what Im doing with either one of these things. considering I have never used anything other then my guitar and amp, with a boss gt8 fx processor, is it normal to feel so lost?

what im really asking is if anyone has any advice or knows any good sites that give information for a complete novice regarding the said equipment, before i break something.

thanks in advance.
