A Musician's Guide to Professional Recording Open a music gear catalog and it's bursting with an incredible array of tools available for home recording: recorders, software, interfaces, microphones, and more. And while that's exciting, the sheer volume of choices can be a distraction to the real goal of home recording: getting some music down. Home Studio Clinic, written from a musician's point of view, is designed to help you build and use a studio based on your musical goals, not necessarily on the assumption that you want to become a master engineer. By exploring concepts and various common tasks, this reader-friendly book gives you the know-how to choose equipment that suits your needs and style, and the techniques to use it effectively. "The goal, " Menasche says, "is to spend studio time creating, not reading owner's manuals." ©2006, 320 pages.
