Vintage gear's sound is preferred by many of today's top artists, including the White Stripes, Slash and Tom Petty. Analog Recording examines setting up a studio and working with the great tape recorders, mixers, outboard gear, and microphones of the '50s, '60s and '70s. The book includes a wealth of suggestions on obtaining vintage gear, recognizing bargains, and maintaining equipment. Special sections analyze the "warmth" of analog recording and present ideas on using old-school techniques in the modern world. The accompanying CD includes music demonstrating analog equipment and methods in action, such as tape delay, echo chamber, and natural tube distortion. ©2006, Book & CD, 144 pages.
