Audio Production and Critical Listening - Anyone can sit behind a console and slide switches up and down. But a truly accomplished engineer knows how to "listen" to the sound and sculpt it to its maximum potential. In this book, you'll learn how to become a more effective "mixer" by not only learning how to listen - but how to solve problems that can make or break a recording.
The value of this work is that you'll come away knowing when to make changes, add things, leave things out; when to enhance, embellish - create a recording that makes the most of what it is supposed to be. The software sits alongside the clear and detailed explanations in the book, offering a complete learning package that will help you train your ears to listen and really "hear" your recordings.
Topics covered include: EQ, dynamics, reverb, distortion, delay and so much more.
