Some customer comments:

" I finally had some time to read your guide and man.....I love it! It is so clear and easy to understand for a novice like me! Thanks so much> William "
Hi Jo , just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed your book - the audio examples are priceless - there are so many books out there that tell you how things should sound , without giving you the opportunity to hear how they do sound.
I would never have thought to buy a ribbon mic , let alone dress my
SM57 in toilet paper! Your style of writing is also refreshing , as
it's clear you have a great passion and talent for making music , but
also , (more importantly) a sense of humour - something which is so
lacking from the many studious publications out there.
To be honest - this is the best £7.50 I've ever spent in my studio - and if it makes any difference , you
should re title this Pro Techniques for Home / Pro recording , as I've
been making records for 10 years , and I'm still getting loads out of

Good luck in the future , and thanks again,
All the best,Fraser T Smith, The Matrix Studios, London (Credits: Kano , Craig David , Plan B , Damon Albarn)


started into the text a little last night and I have to say that the
addition of the audio files makes your book worth the money... picking out the subtle differences and making my own mental note, then reading your interpretation is great. Kind of a blind test to make sure I'm on the right page and really hearing a difference. "

Over the last decade, I have worked in professional and project studios with commercial and independent numerous recording artists.

had the advantage of sitting in on session with some of the best
engineers and producers in the business, taking mental notes all

So I've written what I have learned from years of recording experience in a 120+
page ebook (Adobe .pdf with linked/downloadable audio) with photos
and diagrams, charts, critical tips, mixing and mastering 'how to's' and a wealth of audio examples to hear what's what.

am a professional writer, contributing to Guitar magazine in Europe on
a regular basis, as well as having written a successful guitar
technique book. This is NOT a compilation of web material or links from
the internet, please see my feedback for further customer reviews.
