Digital Audio is the perfect resource for the beginner who is just getting started with recording and mastering music. Russ Haines discusses every aspect that the professional recording engineer takes into consideration for creating quality recordings in an easy to follow approach perfect for any newbie. This information compounded with insightful and often humorous allegories from the author's own experience makes Digital Audio a fun book to read even if you are only interested in the basics of what recording engineers do. Furthermore, the technical information regarding mastering software is spread over the many options available in the marketplace as opposed to just those programs that are the most popular. I highly recommend Digital Audio for anyone who is interested in learning how to make recorded music sound more appealing to the human ear.
