Review quote

Reviews for the current edition."If you're serious about recording - whether you're an amateur enthusiast, a student, a musician or an audio professional - you'll find this book an informative, in-depth, cover-to-cover read and a useful reference manual...an excellent read and a must-have reference book." -Music Tech magazine "Modern Recording Techniques is in its sixth edition, which fact is a testament to the quality of the material on offer here...it's presented in a very user friendly way, with a plethora of illustrations of everything connected with recording. This way, the theory is broken down into easily digestible chunks. One of the best things in an already terrific book is the range of DIY tutorials, where you are presented with practical examples of principles and how they work...Modern Recording Techniques has become the bible of recording for many engineers, and it's not difficult to see why. Always helpful, clear and friendly, learning has never been so easy or so much fun. An essential buy for all studio owners."-Music Mart magazine Published reviews of 5th edition: ?I would recommend it highly to anyone getting into recording at the home or project-studio level as it will give you a really good grounding in the theory and industry practice which underpins the design of all that equipment and software you spend so much money on!? -mightywight.net ?No worries when this handy reference is nearby. It covers the basics about everything, from room acoustics to running a session. If you're a beginner, grab it now. If you think you know it all, you might still learn a thing or two.? -Keyboard magazine "This is quite a surfeit of riches. ...If I were going into the professional recording business...this volume would be my choice." ? John Sunier, Audiophile Audition Audiophile Audition, May 2000 "This book is a must if you plan on doing anything at home besides hooking up a DAT machine directly to the output of your sampler. It gives in-depth information on mic placement and techniques, and provides you with the know-how that you'll need the first time you go to a real recording studio. If you're going to jump in to the deep end of the pool right away, it makes sense to take water wings, just in case." ? SYNC: Resources for the Electronic Musician "A comprehensive, readable, up-to-date guide to all facets of recording." ? MIDI Classics(r) "Practical information on state-of-the-art audio topics. ...Ideal for the practicing or aspiring recording engineer." ?
