For a long time i have been messing around with recording on a 4-track and my pc but getting bad results, but having no idea why, or what i need to do or buy to get some quality recordings. So i bought this book and it has opened up a whole world of home digital recording to me that i never had any way of accessing before. i now feel like i could confidently walk into a shop and buy the things i need and know exactly what im talking about, and know exactly what im looking for. If you want to get into home recording and dont know where to start, just buy this book, its all you need. I cant comment on whether more experienced musical technicians would find it insteresting as well, but im sure it would make a good reference book for them.

I wish this would have been around when I started recording. This book is very straightforward and well laid out. I've always had the impression that recording shouldn't be that hard, and the chosen few who know weren't going to give those that don't all the details. Just enough to frustrate. Or else, these writers really had an assistant engineer who really did all the engineering and the writer didn't know what he was talking about. During my involvement with home recording, I found out through trial and error some of the most important simple things that were never mentioned in any of the books I started with. Most of these books are still for sale. This book covers everything and for me and it's a good refresher. Very handy to have everything I need to reference in one book. Also, I've picked up a few tidbits I didn't already know. Get this book and read it.

This book is great!!!! I have been messing around with home recording for about 2 years, So I say I am still new at this. This book has got me off on the right foot, and helped to set up the studio I have now. It has also shown what kinda of upgrades I can make in the future. I now have everything that I want to get in the future laid out in the order I want/need to get them. I highly recommend this book
