I'd like to begin learning about sound engineering, and am considering going to college for it this year, but I could do with some advice first. It's analogue music production I want to work in, but I wondered if learning using digital equipment, which the college uses, would teach me the principles I need to learn in order to use analogue equipment properly. I didn't want to spend time and money on courses that wouldn't be of much use to me when trying to make in-roads into that line of work. Would I be better off taking a different route, or does it not matter what type of mixing equipment you learn on? If someone could give me a little explanation along with an answer, that would be awesome too.
I appreciate it may be an extremely novice question, but it's difficult for me to get hold of much information at the moment, so this seemed like a good place to ask.
Many thanks for reading.
