From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
With digital technology, virtually anyone can get their hands on professional-quality recording tools, do their own recordings, even build their own studios. But to do it well, you need familiarity with a wide array of equipment and techniques. This book covers them all. It delivers practical (and occasionally passionate) advice on everything from studio acoustics to jitter, miking drum sets to producing surround sound.
The authors take you inside the modern studio, from its physical layout to the recording process and participants’ roles. After a surprisingly useful primer on sound and hearing, they turn to equipment: mikes, digital audio (and when to use analog tape instead); MIDI, amps, consoles, speakers, and more. You’ll find in-depth, practical guidance on synchronization, noise reduction, mastering, manufacturing CDs -- really, just about any facet of recording you’re interested in.
