Mitch Meier has always had a strong love and appreciation for music. Having attended many different concerts as a child, he decided to learn how to play piano, and bought a digital piano, which later made him want to know all about music theory and the recording process. Mitch was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 1999, a type of inflammatory bowel disease, causing a wide variety of symptoms. It primarily causes abdominal pain, weight loss, tiredness, and lack of concentration and his funds and education were limited. Even as he struggled, he tried going to college to study music theory and piano performance in 2000. He was able to go to various colleges to study music, but this did not last too long, as the teachers were very impatient and did not have time to explain to him the way that others would understand. He moved from one college to another, in hopes that he would find a teacher that was adaptable to the way students learn. He took music recording classes as a Pass/Fail credit, as he could only take one class per semester, due to his condition. Mitch finished all his recording classes in 2007, and was taught the ways of using digital audio, such as Pro Tools, but as his condition worsened, he decided it was better to take a breather and study recording on his own. He would read recording articles online, talk to fellow musicians, and analyze different parts of song structure, which has lead him to the interest of learning about the audio recording process. Mitch decided that there is so much involved with the digital audio recording process, that his goal now was to help explain to other people that due to economical restraints, that there is a better way to learn about the digital recording process for those who don't have the funds available for attending a first class recording studio school. For those who are interested in learning the way that today's recording studio operates, and what is involved, he decided to write this book. Anybody can learn, at their own pace, in an easy format, that which he learned from attending various college classes and never receiving a degree, knowing that many others like him would want to know the process of recording. This is his direct way of explaining the digital audio workstation, known as Pro Tools 10, to anybody interested.
