About the Author

Andrew Hagerman, who began his musical life as an aspiring tubist at the age of eight, studied at the prestigious Northwestern University in Chicago. During that period, Hagerman recognized the usefulness of computer music technologies, then in their infancy. Hagerman mastered these technological tools of the trade as they were being invented and refined, and his quest for the best in audio and music technology ultimately brought him to use and teach Avid's Pro Tools. As a performer, Hagerman has played in numerous ensembles of all types, including many years at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Tokyo Disneyland. As a composer, he has been active in the creation of planetarium and science-center soundtracks, and his work can be heard worldwide. Hagerman has also worked as the Associate Course Director of Advanced Audio Workstations at Full Sail Real World Education in Winter Park, Florida, and currently heads up Avid's training and certification program for the Asia/Pacific region.

Bought this for my college sound class for the course Digital Cinematography. Seems very informative. Wouldn't have bought it if my teacher didn't recommend it.

Exceptional For A Pro Tools 10 Newby May 16 2012
By Joseph S. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Extremely valuable book. Very well thought out, layed out, and exceptional content. I'm new to Pro Tools and have found the interface to be the most extreme I have ever encountered. As the title indicates, the book is visual, and visual pics are definitly needed for this application. I haven't counted, but there has to be well over a thousand components\items\buttons, etc., that you can click\type\dial\slide. Trying to explain what exact item to click on a single screen with 500+ clickable items just doesn't cut it. This book simply shows you with a perfectly sized pic (and no it's not filler to pump up the size and sales price) and theres no mistaking what is meant. Besides the pics, there are tons of side notes to go with them. A lot of books have a quick mention of other related aspects of the subject at hand that will be discussed later in the book, but they never mention that they will be discussed later. So I typically stop what I am doing and search the net for an hour (yep, one thing leads to another and another and before you know it you've been on wikipedia, google, and Amazon for a few hours) for what that "mention" is exactly, just to find that it gets discussed in the next few paragraphs or chapters. This book however, immediately states that the short "mention" will be discussed in the next chapter\paragraph, and it does this for every single short "mention". Maaaan is that really appreciated. THANK YOU! Saved me a lot of time, stress, anguish... You name it. I have no relation in any form to the people involved in making this book. I just feel compelled say something since I've read a few hundred tech books in the past 14 years, and this is only the second book that I can say is worth it's weight in gold. The book has lots of step by step instructions and tons of notes about the many alternate methods to accomplish the same. The content is extensive (477 pages of content), but would be a few thousand pages if it were comprehensive. It is not going to enhance someones artistic talent because it's a technical book for a beast of an application.

Great Book for Visual Learners Aug. 14 2012
By robert - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great basic book to get you up and running with Pro Tools 10.

While not quite as slick as the Avid Pro Tools 101 course book (i.e. the pictures are in black and white instead of color), it does offer two very strong advantages. 1. It is loaded with pictures which clearly illustrate the complex user interface of Pro Tools as it explains what to click or what menu to use - handy if you are a visual learner like I am. 2. The extra large format of the book, which easily opens flat, makes it easy to read with no eye strain. (Interesting - the published specifications of the book say that it is the same size as Pro Tools 101, but I have both books and it is quite a bit larger in format).

In summary, it is a good alternative, or better yet, complement, to the Avid Pro Tools 101 -- An Introduction to Pro Tools 10.

Great Book For Anyone Wanting To Learn Pro Tools. June 25 2012
By C. D. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a certified Pro Tools instructor - and wish this book could be my text book for the course. Andrew Hagerman (who works for Avid in the Asian market) takes us through a detailed description via photos and great comments through all the features and menus in Pro Tools. It is written so anyone from the beginner to intermediate can gain something from it. Also the included DVD with session files is a major added bonus - especially if you are a hands on learner. I highly recommend this for anyone just getting into Pro Tools or those who are using an earlier version and have just upgraded to version 10 of PT.

For new users, this is excellent Feb. 24 2013

I was completely new to Pro Tools, and new to digital recording in general, and to put it simply, this was the book I was looking for. It takes you logically and coherently from step 1 on up in using this complex piece of software. It does have a lot of screen shots, which take up a lot of the real estate on the pages, but I actually found it quite helpful to see on the page exactly what I was seeing on my screen.

i am a 100% beginner on Pro Tools and DAW, so I have a lot to learn. This book was very helpful, but was not organized in a way that I would like. Maybe I'm expecting too much, but it would be nice if a book started with creating music, then mixing, but it is more jumbled than that.
