Format: Paperback
This is a fine book but it makes little sense to buy this softcover book, when you can purchase the hardcover book it's based on, Audio In Media (ISBN: 0534548040), for an additional eight dollars list.
The hardcover book covers more subject areas including broadcast video production. I use this as a textbook for my entry-level Audio Production courses at Mercy College. One key feature missing in the softcover edition is the end of chapter summary, entitled "Main Points." I tell my students to start the chapter by reading these first--then reading the chapter.
For the minimal difference in price, I'd buy the hardcover version (and as I write this today, Amazon's price for the hardcover is actually cheaper!).

I haven't found, for my purposes, a better general guide to the recording studio anywhere. What particularly pleases me is that Mr. Alten offers essential insight into analog technology and practical acoustic principles, and treats digital technology as a vital progression but not as the be-all and end-all of the present and future of audio recording.

I found this to be a helpful source in writing my term paper. It is great for any college student wanting to learn more about music or any music major
