Rockable Press have just released a new book: How to Record Great Music by Audiotuts+ regular and audio engineer Björgvin Benediktsson. And you can get $6 off the eBook version for the next four days – just in time for Christmas. That’s not long, so hurry!
Making great music and quality audio has more to do with your knowledge and skills than the equipment that you own. That’s why the book’s called “How to Record Great Music… with Whatever Equipment You Got!” It will give you the information you need to start producing music using whatever gear you already own as a starting point.
When I was studying sound engineering, and was just starting out in the industry, I was intimidated by all the things I seemed to either need to have or know how to use. I got tired of always looking for tips and practical help online, especially when all I usually ended up with were sites that were more interested in showcasing the newest sample library or synthesizer, rather than actually teaching you how to do certain things or use some of the audio production tools that are out there. I had a ton of questions, and I wished there was a simple and straight-forward book I could refer to – but there wasn’t – so I decided to turn things around and change that by writing a book myself.
This is the book I wish I had when I was learning the ropes, and I’ve tried to keep it broad and make it a practical guide to audio recording and engineering. I personally really like quick tips and I feel that practical applications are crucial to remembering how and why to use a specific technique, so I won’t be delving into the theoretical specifics of every little thing, but I’ll try to give you an overview of the basics and the practical knowledge needed to start in the world of audio engineering and recording music.
Here’s a brief overview:
- What Makes a Good Sound
- How I Record Great Music
- An Introduction to Microphones and Mic Techniques
- The Recording Workflow
- The Audio Mixer
- Audio Editing
