A Guide To Recording At Home

Backbeat Books has published The Home Recording Handbook by Dave Hunter, and is now shipping to retailers and customers. Here's what they have to say about it:
Gone are the days when home recording was limited to four tracks of tape hiss on a cassette porta-studio. Now, limitless digital multitrack recording and a vast array of outboard effects and processors are available to anyone with a computer. Add a few other essentials such as a microphone, some headphones and monitors, and anyone can have a home studio capable of making professional recordings worthy of airplay and release. What one might not have is the know-how to harness all that vast potential, which is where The Home Recording Handbook comes in.
In this latest entry in Backbeat's best-selling handbook series, author Dave Hunter shows readers how to make pro-sounding recordings without pro budgets and expensive studios, and get great results with the gear they have. He takes readers through tracking, mixing, and mastering, showing how to make each effective with minimal gear. He includes tips for drums, bass, guitar, keyboard, vocals and more.
Packed with tips and techniques, The Home Recording Handbook is designed to open flat for use as an easy reference guide and is supported by specially recorded audio tracks on the accompanying CD. This is an essential volume for the working musician.
