RECORDING AND PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES
by Paul White
Over the past few years, studio technology has changed dramatically. Today the traditional tape-based recording environment has largely been supplanted by software mixers and VST instruments and effects, shrinking down the studio to the size of a computer monitor.
But of course recording your own music isn't just about D-A converters and auxilliary outs and this fully updated second edition runs the gamut, explaining how to plan a recording session, how to coax the best performance from musicians and how to take a project through to final release, from mastering to finished product. With an exhaustive glossary of vital studio terminology, Recording and Production Techniques takes a straightforward, minimum-jargon approach to demystifying the various tricks and techniques used in contemporary music production.
If you're making music, or you want to, this book is for you.
