HASH(0x9bd65080) out of 5 stars Excellent Book for the beginner!!! May 3 2009
By Gadget Geek - Published on
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!

HASH(0x9bd652cc) out of 5 stars Essentially OK But... May 15 2009
By Radiovespa - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

HASH(0x9bd65788) out of 5 stars very informative textbook Dec 11 2009
By Bob Justman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Extremely informative book, with a thorough and concise section explaining basic digital music production. This section alone makes the book worth the price of admission, as other texts assume the user has lots of experience in DAW audio production, but this book explains all. Also contains a thorough history of the development of M-Audio/DigiDesign Pro Tools software and the theories and reasoning behind each new product. The only caveat is that the Pro Tools hardware spoken of so highly in this textbook is proprietary and prohibitively expensive, and most authorized DigiDesign repair centers will tell you to return the DigiDesign stuff to the factory for repairs. I say this from personal experience. I wish the hardware was as interchangeable, reliable, and as reasonably priced as this book.

HASH(0x9bd65a7c) out of 5 stars The best! Aug. 17 2010
By 513RD MAN - Published on
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.
