Wellll, while I've been through a process of learning - I can't say it was all that successful 😅
I had my recording laptop die recent, and I've been too lazy to re-install on new desktop (I think I'm stalling coz' I'm not wanting to know if interface will work on win10)
I always think a glossary is the most useful thing when learning a new topic. There's all these fancy words, but a few diagrams and decent explanation of words/concepts helps me most (initially) .
So my first resource (as out of date as it may be) for total newbs is David Campos's music production 101. Give a good overview of what a hardware setup will look like, what is a workflow, etc...
