Years ago I worked with tape and analog..you remember...the old kerosene powered Tascams...but I've never really felt that I've taken full advantage of digital recording.
Picking up new knowledge via the benefit of someone else's hard earned experience would be a good idea.

I'll go for a recording/live section. As Newey says, there are dedicated forums for the truly in-depth, but as part of general guitar usage it would certainly be handy to be able to ask the odd question here without having to sign up to another forum.
At the moment I am doing more writing and recording than guitar focussed stuff anyway- after years of obsession with guitars I am now trying to put what I know to more practical use! That has made me realise how much I have neglected to learn over the years, so any discussion on recording and mixing techniques is a goldmine to me. That said, I have also been using recording gear of various sorts for years, and have presented demo material in quite high demand situations, so hopefully I can give some back too.

Good idea - and I like the recording/live sound addition to it. This whole area seems to be one where cost can be much greater than just that of guitars and amps, and its harder to build up personal experience quickly. So input from those who know more will be particularly valuable.
We have now something over 1400 members, so "consensus" is probably not the right word. But those who have chimed in all seem to like the idea, and no one has given any reason not to set up a Live Sound/Recording area.
I'll leave this be for a few days, and if no negatives are posted warranting further debate, it's a go.
