Making great audio recordings requires striking the right balance between technical know-how and practical understanding of recording sessions. Even in the digital age, some of the most important aspects of creating and recording music are non-technical and, as a result, are often overlooked by traditional recording manuals. The Art of Digital Audio Recording teaches readers what they really need to know in order to make great sound recordings with computers - both the practical and the technical information, including:
· What to look and listen for in a recording environment
· Straightforward advice on recording almost any instrument
· Essentials of digital audio workstations
· Essentials of recording gear: microphones, mixers, and speakers
· Fundamentals of understanding and applying EQ, compression, delay, and reverb
· Secrets to running creative recording sessions
· Practical application of digital editing, mixing, and mastering

A special section identifies solutions to the most common challenges in the recording studio, and the book also features an addendum with essential tips and reference information including:
· How to walk into a commercial studio and be the engineer
· Researching and buying gear: Internet vs. brick and mortar
· Digital formats: A handy reference

As a whole, The Art of Digital Audio Recording is an essential resource that gives recordists the tools they need to let technical understanding serve greater musical goals.

About the Author:


An active producer, recording engineer, and instructor, Steve Savage has been the primary engineer on seven Grammy-nominated CDs. He is the author of numerous books, including the forthcoming Bytes & Backbeats: Repurposing Audio in the Digital Age.

Review:


"Steve Savage is the best - his mellow, positive personality makes him a pleasure to work with. I'm very happy with the two projects we've done together. He's very together in the studio, and with Steve there are no technical problems to interrupt the flow of the music making. He's a smart guy and his musical opinions are solid. I'm glad he wrote this book."--Elvin Bishop, legendary recording artist


"Savage succinctly sums up the digital do's and don'ts, ties the techniques and terminology back to their analog roots and relates it all to the needs of the music and musicians. Great book!"--Richard James Burgess Ph.D., author of The Art of Record Production and The Art of Music Production


"Steve Savage's combination of industry and academic experience give this book the huge advantage of bringing together the rigor of his research and theoretical knowledge with his practical grounding in the technicalities, social dynamics, and psychology of how the recording process works. I loved it."--Simon Zagorski-Thomas, Chairman of the Association for the Study of the Art of Record Production and Director of the Art of Record Production Conference


"Savage's book reads like a conversation with an elder craftsman, providing a practical and thoroughly comprehensive introduction to the processes and considerations of today's recording environments...It's refreshing to find an author in the recording industry that continually keeps the focus on the major priorities and gives a solid presentation of how a student should begin developing their paradigm of audio recording. Any instructor of music production would be well advised to add The Art of Digital Audio Recording to their short list of essential texts to prepare their students for the technical choices, and creative opportunities, that await them." --Journal on the Art of Record Production
