The Recording, Mixing, and Mastering Reference Handbook provides an easy-to-read guide for music-making in the studio setting, from equipment fundamentals to recording and mixing almost any instrument. In six sections, lessons give a comprehensive introduction to microphone settings and techniques, audio processing and effects, controlling acoustics, and history lessons on songs recorded with a given technique. The second half of the handbook delves into background theory on microphones, EQ-filters, compressors, and acoustics to give the reader a general understanding of practical recording techniques before acquiring deeper comprehension of the tools and the recording processes. Throughout the chapters, lessons on recording methods gradually build complexity and detail to keep readers engaged and challenged. Whether a university student in an audio recording course, a novice audio engineer who needs to build technique, or a busy professional who requires a quick refresh on specific techniques, any reader will find an essential resource in The Recording, Mixing, and Mastering Reference Handbook.

Great organization! The information provided in this book is concise and to the point while also offering a good amount of background information covering many techniques and nuances of music recording. It is a great resource for novice and professional engineers and producers alike. If you are involved in the recording of music in any capacity, you should have this book within reach. * Socrates Garcia, Associate Professor of Music and Director of Music Technology, University of Northern Colorado * Pedersen and Grimshaw-Aagaard have created an updated, contemporary desk reference for anyone interested in understanding the recording process, from tracking through preparation for distribution, in a taut, concise volume that is as detailed as it is accessible. * Seth Cluett, Computer Music Center, Columbia University *
