I have to admit, the thought of moving from ‘MY’ baby the AIR Users Blog to Pro Tools Expert blog with a team was a little daunting when I first considered it. It had nothing to do with megalomania, more to do with the feeling you have when you are a parent (or a pet owner) and you have to trust your baby with someone else. What you are thinking is ‘will they love my baby like I do and will they treat it like I do’.
I’m glad to say that all those fears were unfounded. It was a little weird at first to find posts on ‘MY’ Pro Tools blog when I woke up in the morning, but now I love seeing what’s coming up on OUR Pro Tools blog each day, I’m getting myself a new education - although perhaps not on Windows, that would be a step too far for this Apple fanboy.
Team can sometimes be a challenge, it means deferring to one another, group decision making and also of course just making the time to keep in touch and care about one another. On that last point, if you do want to come on and take a cheap pop at any of the team then don’t be surprised if I bite - it’s a natural instinct in a team of caring professionals. Please don’t misunderstand, we are happy to take constructive criticism to make this better for all of us, but if you just want to throw a rock then don’t be surprised if 6 come back at you!
I think the new Pro Tools Expert blog is stronger and richer for this amazing team and I just wanted to publicly thank them for their care and dedication to the community. So to Eric, Mike, Neil, Wolfgang and Roberto - I thank you on behalf of everyone!
Furthermore, we are always on the look out to strengthen the team further, so if you want to share this journey then send me an email outlining what you think you have to offer. You need to be experienced in Pro Tools and related equipment, be able to string a sentence together and must commit to at least 6 months to the team.
