For a while I had wanted to see about becoming a sound engineer. Until I read this book. There is so much information here I was completely overwhelmed! So many diagrams and buttons and knobs and everything else involved with recording – I had no idea! It certainly gave me a new respect for those who can do all this and understand all the different knobs and buttons! If you want to know everything there is to know about recording – then this is the book for you!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
The sound recorder is the ‘mirror with a memory’ for those who listen. With it we can capture glimpses of our reality, producing ‘pictures’ as we express ourselves. These may ultimately serve as reminders of who we were and of our dreams…
Your recordings are the vehicle for your compositions. Improve the artistry of your productions with this techniques guide, which focuses throughout on musicality and how your decisions affect it. Author Carlos Lellis Ferreira walks you through the recording process, bringing aesthetic considerations into each discussion. Learn visually with detailed diagrams and clear explanations of best practices.
Unlike many other recording books, Music Production: Recordingis organized around real-world scenarios, with details about roles and responsibilities that help you navigate through key stages of production.
