More About the Author

Scott R. Garrigus (www.garrigus.com). I began my musical journey at the age of 12 when my parents got me my first computer, the Atari 400. Ever since then, I have been fascinated with making music using technology. I spent one Summer working at a Daddy's Junky Music store and purchased my first electronic keyboard: the Roland JX-8P. Then after taking some music theory courses in high school and some private keyboard lessons, I was hooked even more.

I decided to pursue a career in music and audio engineering, which led me to earn a B.A. in music performance with an emphasis in sound recording technology. A couple years later (1993), I released my first instrumental album on cassette, entitled Pieces Of Imagination. Then in 1995, my career took a bit of a twist' I began my professional writing career when my first articles appeared in Electronic Musician magazine.

I never really intended to become a writer, but found I had a talent for explaining things in a clear and organized manner so that anyone could understand the information - even if it was highly technical. So in 2000, I authored my first book, Cakewalk Power! and I've been writing ever since. To date, I have written over 12 books and continue to contribute articles to a number of print and online publications. I also publish my own music technology newsletter, called DigiFreq (www.digifreq.com), which provides free information for home recording and professional music technology users all over the world.

I've been using Sound Forge for about ten years, for a very specific, technical kind of editing. I learned just the aspects of the software that suited my work, and nothing more. Now I want to gain a FULL understanding, as inexpensively as possible.

I'm about a quarter of the way through this book and find it to be EXCEPTIONALLY USEFUL/HELPFUL. The author explains the concept and use of all aspects of the program. Only slight allowance needs to be made for the fact that I'm using version 9, when the book actually is written for the prior version 8.

Amazon's price is excellent, well below the publisher's price and generally less than competing onine resellers. And what's better than prompt FREE delivery with a 30-day return policy? Buy this book and keep it handy. It is showing me in clear, understandable terms how vastly capable Sound Forge really is (after all my years of using the software...duh)

It really wasn't what I expected. It's geared more for the music editor. I edit audio interviews and it really didn't discuss the major things I am interested in--eliminating distortion, mixing sounds, etc. Very complex.

As a voice over narrator I need the best sound quality I can find and Sound Forge is it. And to navigate this application, Scott Garrigus' book is a lucid guide, showing the way way this product works best. There's no better guide. Charlie Jacobs

The book really helps in making Sound Forge easier to grasp. It is a very deep program, and Scott opens all the layers just as he does with all his books!
