5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for the beginner!!! May 3 2009
By Gadget Geek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is absolutely perfect for the beginner/intermediate user of any DAW outside of protools. I dove into protools before getting this book and managed to do a few recordings on my own; this book allowed me to do basic things that I didn't know were possible or made things I was already doing a bit easier or allowed me to go further with each feature.
The problem many people have with this book is the DVD that comes with it. You need quicktime and you also need to copy the files to your pc; they play horribly from the dvd-rom drive or don't play at all; once you copy the files/folders to your mac or pc; you're good money!!!!

Buy this book; you won't be sorry!

3.0 out of 5 stars Essentially OK But... May 15 2009
By Radiovespa - Published on Amazon.com
This book is OK as far as it goes. It's all technically accurate and fairly well organized. But it's instructionally lacking in my opinion because the exercises aren't integrated into the lessons. Instead there are two exercise projects at the end of the book. It would be much better if you were able to practice a particular procedure related to the specific lessons in the chapters.

My other criticism is that this book assumes all users are music producers. For good or ill, Pro Tools has become the industry-standard audio production software. But not everyone who uses it makes music. Many of us make radio documentaries and features. We may use the same tools as music producers but how we approach the work is different. It would be good if training material such as this book acknowledged other user types and offered material from their perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best! Aug. 17 2010
By 513RD MAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had six audio classes, this should of been the first book we used! I got more from this book than I did taking the classes. If you are new to Pro tools 8, this is a good beginners book! It has two tutorials that walk you through projects that will help you get to know pro tools. The included DVD has additional instructional videos on it.

I am half way through this book and find it very informative and useful to learn the Pro Tools interface. There is a lot of information and it's a great resource to have in your library for whenever you have a Pro Tools question. I would get it if I were you!!
