However, I was expecting a "Comprehensive Guide." The book was quite basic and never got past the fundamentals of anything. Common sense topics such as reverb literally go on for pages and pages. For example, it takes 3 pages to explain the punch-in process on a 4-track.
Speaking of punch-in, this document is targeted at people using tape. PC users should investigate another document, there are however 12 pages dedicated to 4-track usage.
I'll warn you, most of the samples are things you could do with your own effects. "Here's a violin with no reverb. Here's the same violin with hall reverb," etc.
What really frustrated us was that there are endless references to sections in Volume I. It interrupts the flow of the book. I feel that the author misled me. I was tricked into buying half a book. I can't return the book because I opened the cd already.
This is a great book if you are new to the concept of recording your music and want to be eased into it.
