2. Never use cheapo cables, they will degrade the clarity and colour of the sound severely, but not in a cool lo-fi grungey way .
3. Make a copy of your Song/Project folder, all samples, arrangements etc. to another hard drive and keep it updated. It is the worst feeling ever when you have a killer tune on the go and by error it gets deleted or such.
4. Always save tweaks and settings on VSTs when you make a good "sound" in a project, it is nearly impossible to exactly recreate the original.
5. Good quality headphones can be very usefull for monitoring detailed and intricate sounds like vocals, effects etc., at low to moderate levels for short periods only. But not a good idea for kicks, basses and subs, unless of course you like the idea of permanent ringing in your ears the rest of your life.
6. If you do not understand or appreciate that making music is a highly creative and spiritual process that has the power to touch other people in profound way, then you probably shouldn't be doing it. Of course in this department, ignorance in its purest form can be bliss.
I hope something in this mixed bag can be useful to fellow "artists".

2. Pft. Because the audio signal path in your gear is all wired from 100% pure gold, right?
