    Stay at Home!

    There is no need to spend endless amounts of money to rent time in a studio. This book will show you how to create high-quality recordings from the comforts of your own home. The author, David Franz, gives an in depth explanation of basic production and engineering skills. By the time you turn the last page you will have a complete understanding of the entire production process. 'Recording and Producing in the Home Studio' is a gem, definitely worth every penny.
