David Franz has produced another gem of a book. His first book, "Producing in the Home Studio With Pro Tools" is required reading for anybody who wants to learn how to record, mix and master with Pro Tools. This book is a great complement to David's first book. It is comprehensive, easy to read and filled with great insights. For those who don't have time or can't afford to take David's online classes at Berklee College of Music, this book will give you a solid foundation for learning how to get the most out of your home studio.

I am in college and do a lot of recording for myself, others, and my band using my laptop. Without a professional recording studio to properly record and mix my audio, a book like this really helped me increase the quality of my recordings. With helpful tips on how to mix both audio and midi, as well as a few recording techniques, my recordings have started sounding much more professional. A+!

I liked this book, it has tons of useful information. The ilustrations are great also, very comprehensive. I also liked the chapters dedicated to the role of the producer in the different stages of the pre, pro, and post production process. However, the author is a little repetitive in some concepts. Overall, good book, I recommend it.

This book is dead on and very informative, no matter if you've been at for years or just starting out. It's not only a "how to" but a very good "why is that?" type of read. You learn how to do what you need to do with your music and why it is done certain ways. So if you need to sharpen up the skills or pickup some to start with this is a good choice.

I am a professional musician and composer who aced my production training a few years ago. I wanted a refresher course, as I feel like a beginner producer, due to not having any opportunities to produce my own music until now. I purchased a well known online audio production course at the same as purchasing this book. (The course I am referring to doesn't recommend this book as course materials - I found it independently.)

I found that had I purchased this book alone, I would have saved myself quite a lot of money. It has all the info I need, provided in a more concise way than that of the course. David's writing style is easy going. His credentials make him a credible and worthy teacher. I'm happy that I came across his book.

I would recommend this book to those who may have had previous production experience, and those who may simply require a detailed summary and explanation of production techniques.

This book is great for beginners, who are just starting to record their own projects, and also for people who intend to become musical producers, it contains a lot of great tips about how to set up your studio, mixing and about the relantionship between producers and musicians.

This book is a GREAT wealth of information for those just starting out as well as studio veterans that are looking for a good overall review to studio music recording. This book does an excellent job in describing nearly every aspect of the recording process and does so without being too esoteric or technical. Not to say it doesn't explain the technical aspects of studio recording, because it definitely does! It's just that he explains it succinctly and in an easy to understand way. I have learned a lot about studio recording from all sorts of sources, from books such as this one, to online articles and studio recording forums etc. This book is the best source I've found personally. I reference it often and have reread most chapters at least twice to help solidify the knowledge in my head.
I highly recommend this book!

Mr. Moran, I don't usually take the time to write reviews but in this case I have to repond to your ridiculous and completely inaccurate comments in your 3-star review. Digital audio is NOT continuous, never has been and positively never will be. It simply is NOT possible to perfectly reproduce a continous analog sound wave with a rapid series of ones and zeros -- which is what digital audio (or digital anything, for that matter) is. With digital you can get close enough to fool the non-discerning listener. 96khz and beyond is an awful lot of samples per second; but no matter how you finely you slice it, they're still discrete samples and are in no way, shape or form continuous.

This book is written in clear, concise sections that will be helpful to any novice, mid-level or advanced recordist. It's not necessary to read it cover to cover, you can skip to sections that apply to your immediate conundrum. I have highlighted sections and referred to this book on many occasions. Very good reference.
