Studio essentials (Pehmeäkantinen kirja)
Tom Hapke provides precise, results-oriented information geared towards the hands-on musician.
With instructions on dozens of techniques and concepts written in a "just the facts" manner, you'll be up and running in no time.
Over 100 helpful photos and diagrams help to show the way. Topics include room acoustics, microphones, effects, exciters, enhancers, equalizers, filters and tips and tricks.
This is an excellent resource and reference guide for home hobbyists and experienced professionals, with valuable information on mic-ing techniques.
The basic information is transferable and won't "go out of style" because it's not geared towards any one software package.
