Newbie from the UK says hello

Post by KenSmith » Mon Jul 13, 2015 3:42 pm

Hi,
My name is Ken Smith and I live in Durham in the U.K. I have just joined taxi and the forum so wanted to introduce myself to you all. I have been here on the forum this past month just looking around, and already feel I have learned so much from you all, so thank you and I hope I can make a positive contribution to life here on the boards.

Bit of my background, I have been involved in music for a fair old time, I ran a small recording studio back in the 90's and went on to write a few instrumental pieces that got placements. Family and life took over however and I ended up leaving the recording world and going into teaching while my three lads were growing up, happy days but I wish I had kept writing. I now work for myself, and aim to spend more of my time getting back into music, so over the last two years I have been setting up and finding my way in the digital world, still trying to cope with the idea that I don't need a mixing desk any more ! loving every minute of it. So here we go, month one of the taxi five year plan.
Great to be here, and hope to get to know you.

Greetings, Ken.
My hanging-around time was more like a few years before taking the join-plunge, June 1st.
So, welcome; from another old 'Newbie'-dude.
Cheers.
