Book Description

Nov. 22 1999 0240515730 978-0240515731 1
Offers a wealth of advice regarding the problems encountered in studio work and how to deal with them. Some feel for technical issue is needed to glean the most from what the book has to offer, but even the non-technical readers will extract useful and relevant information if they work in project studios.




What have come to be known as 'project studios' exist in the area somewhere between home studios and fully commercial studios - in reality there are no longer any clear dividing lines between bedroom or garage studios and the world's finest facilities.

However, what is missing from so many project studios is experience in front-line recording, which can lead to bad recording practices, poor decision making, misapplication of equipment and the inability to get the best performances out of the musicians. This book attempts to pass on some of that experience in as readable a way as possible.

Projects Studios covers in particular the problems of loudspeakers and acoustics, as these are the aspects by which all studio work is judged. They are also the subjects that cause the greatest misunderstanding and which, in turn, hold back progress. In this book the inexperienced studio operator will find the answers to getting first class, professional results every time.

Famous recording studios featured in this book include:
- Mike Oldfield's home studio
- Eel Pie studios, owned by Pete Townsend of The Who and frequently used by the Coctear Twins


With Studio Monitoring Design and Recording Spaces, this book completes a trilogy of titles comprising a complete library for the aspiring professional sound recordist. Together they offer:
· A complete library for the aspiring professional sound recordist.
· Comprehensive coverage of acoustics, monitoring and equipment interfacing.
· Information of relevance to all studios, from the most meagre to the world's finest.


Written by an internationally-respected studio designer.
Comprehensive coverage of every aspect of project studios.
Advice on overcoming problems encountered in studio work.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst book on studio design ever written July 12 2005
By D. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
There is nothing technical at all in this book. If you like long boring stories about nothing that happen to take place in a studio this book is for you. Everyone else should read Master Handbook of Acoustics and Acoustic Absorbers and Diffusers: Theory, Design, and Application instead.
