I own a copy of this book and I am a bit displeas- ed. It doesn't dwell with using compressors or any effects units. Which is most important,to the home recordist. If there are others out there who own this book,also. I would like to hear from you.

This book has it all. A wonderfully condensed introduction to recording. All the essentials, and a bit of wit to help things along. I can't reccomend it enough.

i guess i expected something else... March 30 2005

...i expected the book to also weave into the "mix" the new digital world with many of these expensive machines now so cost-effectively reduced to computer programs-- BUT, it is detailed and all the basic principles and most terms still apply. it just seems so dated to be giving so much attention to what must have been quickly fading technology like 4 track tape machines even in 1996 (print date...). if you want to do it "the old fashioned way" then it seems to be a great book-
Quite dated Nov. 1 2010
By Rick H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While there's some good info contained in this book about the basics of home recording, overall I would not recommend this book as it's copyrighted 1996 and talks a lot about cassette recorders and Portastudio technology of the time.

What can I say? Dec 14 2005
By Henry Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book tells all u need to create your own recording studio, your recording sessions, making your demos and/or making or selling your own music plus creating your own label and publisher. I haven't even read it yet but ASAP I will. Just finished reading Conducting Technique for Beginners and Professionals by Brock McElheran and Everything You'd Better Know About the Record Industry by Kashif.

So look likes to me that this may help me grow more and be familiar of w'sup in the music and entertainment industry incl. in film, video, TV and plays too.

Thank God it's truly a fantastic book to have. Highly Recommended.
