Alan Parsons' Art & Science of Sound Recording is more than a learning tool overseen by one of music's most respected and intelligent artists. Alan Parsons has been involved in recording with groups ranging from The Beatles to Pink Floyd as well as his own group, The Alan Parsons Project.

In this 3 DVD set, you'll not only benefit from Alan's vast studio experience but others whom he has both worked and learned from. Many aspects of recording are covered starting with the basics of designing a studio environment to the actual recording process itself. You'll see how it all comes together through the various techniques that Alan will explore.

The set contains 24 sections that break the process down into its components, carefully exploring the ins and outs of how to successfully record a track, mix it and finish with an exciting recording. He uses one of his own songs to demonstrate the recording process.

The set contains a companion web site for additional material as well as quizzes that will help reinforce what you learn while listening to this fascinating and comprehensive work.

Interviews with more than 40 fellow engineers, producers, and artists throughout the DVD, whose insights and perspectives give the program a musical breadth that includes country (Chuck Ainlay, Tony Brown), R&B and hip hop (Jimmy Douglass, Erykah Badu) and pop (John Fields, John Shanks) that perfectly complements Alan's personal classic rock heritage
This part targets the major components of recording - building a studio, equipment and software
Examines the process and techniques of recording from EQ, compression, limiters, noise gates, reverb and delay. It uses one of Alan's songs "All Our Yesterdays" and shows you the session using many of today's leading session players such as Simon Phillips, Nathan East, Rami Jaffee, and Tim Pierce
Also covers recording vocals using artists such as Michael McDonald, Erykah Badu, Abi Colbeck and James Durbin
DVD Three
This part covers instrumentation and how to simultaneously record both the instruments with voice
It then moves on to Mixing where the track can either be a success of failure. It also deals with how to cope with mistakes and studio recording disasters
Includes an interactive web site for source material and forums
You'll also have access to "quizzes" that will help reinforce what you've learned along the way
