Editorial Reviews


Absolute recording Bible! Straight forward, to the point, demystifying the secrets in recording. If material beats method, THIS is the way to go!" Axe Follin "I just wanted to say thanks for your work. Straight to the point, and it doesn't drag on. Perfect. I've learned lots from it." Jared Gardner It's the best of its kind! " Florian Huckler In my opinion, the BEST book for recording TECHNIQUES. There are interviews with professional engineers littered throughout the text, explaining what they use, how they use it, where they put mics. Obviously there are no rules when recording, but this will help you see some of the basic setups for recording literally ANYTHING! Dr. Kenneth "I just got through reading this and it is excellent." John Newton A crucial manual for anyone who records anything, anywhere, with any gear. Small wonder I see this profusely written text in most, if not all the studios I record in! It really is a "field manual" for recording engineers; many consider it a classic. Paul ILL This is an excellent source of information not just for the beginner but for anyone who is looking for a few tips and tricks to make their work better. While some of the information is basic, sometimes a little review is useful to correct problems that have crept into an engineer's habits. Through the interviews Owsinski conducted, you can clearly see that there are several different approaches to capturing music. What works best, it fast becomes clear, is more a function of the engineer than anything else. It also makes it clear that your ear is the most important tool you have at your disposal and it should be used throughout the session. For me, the references on mic positions for various instruments are useful but I find the greatest value in the interviews. For anyone looking to up their game, you could do far worse than to add this to your bookshelf. Wayne Bouchard Young students often ask me for suggestions on how to get started as a recording engineer. I always point them to Bobby O's excellent series on recording and mixing. "The Recording Engineer's Handbook" isn't just one author's "how to" book - Bobby has interviewed a vast array of pro recording engineers on every audio recording engineering subject and area. As an experienced working engineer himself, Bobby knows the questions to ask his subjects to bring out the thinking process behind the recording of music. What the reader gains is a start at building their own intuition on how to tackle recording engineering situations and problems. "The Recording Engineer's Handbook" is a great cross-pollination of recording techniques and ideas and is a valuable resource to both the student and working recording engineer. Highly recommended. Michael J. Bishop Excellent book with loads of resourceful information. Both new and seasoned engineers could gather knowledge from this book. Nick Tuttle Best book for recording hands down- If you are serious about getting a professional sound this is the book for you. p.s. Bobby is a genius, any book with his name on it is worth reading! Noah Hans This is an excellent quick reference guide for anyone new to recording or the seasoned veteran that just needs a reminder on a specific technique. It's one of the few technical guides that you can read without having to have the equipment in front of you. Johnny Sokko This book is the most informative book about recording I ever read. It's starts with the different types of mics and what the specs mean. Then it goes on to talk about mic placement for different instruments. A list of every conceivable instrument you can think of and how to record them. I've learned so much from this book. i should have bought this years ago. Ronald Benoit Jr.
