    Finally, a recording guide with actual substance.

    Scanning the music section at a local Barnes I stumbled upon what seemed like another "how to record" music book. Intrigued by the "secrets of recording" title that we have all seen so many times I began scanning it. WOW, was I surprised when I discovered that literally every single topic I had been curious about for years was covered. Most recording books are targeted at hobbyist and newbies, with no real substance or "tricks" that really makes the difference between a demo and a legit record.

    So what is in the book? Well... Lorne explains the basics... using and setting up a click track, getting the right tones in the right room. But than also talks about beat detective and sound replacement, things that your typical studio virgins wouldn't have a clue about. Also included chapters on pitch corretion, doubling vocals, midi sequencing, an array of common pluggins, and guitar emulators.

    Lorne spells out very clearly a handful of tricks that all the pro's use. Included in all the chapters are screen shots of all the plugins and equipment so you can literally follow along on your pro tools rig as he explains it.

    For hobbyist and up and comers, this book is ESSENTIAL to your library. It contains everything that your typical (50,000 dollar a year Full Sail) school is trying to sell you. I highly recommend this book and really hope that Lorne is able to do a part 2 or at least an updated version down the road.
