Ok, so why doesn¿t my music I record at my home recording studio sound like the pros? If you have asked yourself this question, then this is a book that you need to get! It is one of the best over all books to get you started making great sounding tracks in your home studio without all of the technical mumbo jumbo that you sometimes run into in most books. Another great point is that this book is based on the poor man (musician) level of things that you can afford to get, and not a bunch of pictures of high end and very expensive equipment and technical note about them. If you just want to lean the basic tricks on how to improve your tracks, this book will take you home recordings to a whole new level! There are other books that focus more on the different phases that get into the more technical and more in depth, but this is the best over all book that I have ever ran across in my 30 years in the music business!
