I just told you facts about what i want, why, how, etc etc. Unfortunately on forums you can't be honest without coming across a certain way which is NOT where i'm coming from. But without being honest and by fearing the possibility of not being politically correct or coming off as pretentious, what happens is nothing gets done because you get questioned over and over about things you already understand. And if you don't try and explain what you know and your experience and all that, 95% of replies end up being a waste of time because they are things you already know and understand and have thought of. Then when you tell people that then become offended that you didn't consider trying their suggesting even if it's something you are as familiar with as the back of your hand. How do you get around that w/o sounding condescending or pretentious? I dunno....u can say it any way you want and some people take it the way u did. I have 2 choices because of this....1-ask and hope i don't become seen as you see me, or 2-don't post here. Sorry u feel i'm what you think i am, but the fact is all i'm trying to do is hear suggestions and see if anything triggers a light bulb but if i don't try everything i'm told i have to expect replies like yours, even when i have done what u suggest a million times and know exactly what that'll get me ****knowing myself, the sounds i like and how i use my gear**** which you don't know. So since i can't just explain myself w/o being seen in the light you see me in I'll just opt for #2.
