"Because of remarkable technologies, most musicians can now record their music in the home (or non studio) environment. Unfortunately, even though the technology is there for us, making a good recording requires knowledge in a variety of audio subjects. Ben Harris has compiled an excellent primer in these subjects. This book will provide it's readers with a full range of the fundamental knowledge needed to get professional level recordings. Read this book first - it will save you a lot of time, agony, and money."
-Tom Barbour, Songwriter
