5.0 out of 5 stars “Modern Recording Techniques” is an essential read
It’s a serious credit to David Huber and Robert Runstein that Modern Recording Techniques is now in its eighth edition, and particularly if you take into consideration that the book was first published in 1974! There’s are a reason for its enduring success, and that is simply that it remains one of the most in-depth and authoritative texts on recording and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title, way too general
I was looking for a book that dealt specifically with recording techniques such as mic placement and so on, and looking at the preview pages there appeared to be some detail on this. However I was disappointed when I actually got the book, it's way too general. It is well written, he has a nice style but it tries to cover everything, from the intimate workings of reel to...

5.0 out of 5 stars “Modern Recording Techniques” is an essential read, 7 Mar 2014
It’s a serious credit to David Huber and Robert Runstein that Modern Recording Techniques is now in its eighth edition, and particularly if you take into consideration that the book was first published in 1974! There’s are a reason for its enduring success, and that is simply that it remains one of the most in-depth and authoritative texts on recording and studio production. Acoustics and studio design right through to surround sound and mastering are covered, with each and every step along the way covered with completely authority in each subject area. For any of my students who want to get all their knowledge bases covered, relating to studio technology and all the various elements of audio production, then “Modern Recording Techniques” is an essential read.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had fast, prompt delivery. The book was in perfect condition and would recommend it to anyone who is in the Music Industry or is thinking out going into it, or for someone who is just studying Music. I am currently studying for a Music Degree and I have found this product very useful and informative, well worth the high price tag!

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title, way too general, 26 Aug 2014

I was looking for a book that dealt specifically with recording techniques such as mic placement and so on, and looking at the preview pages there appeared to be some detail on this. However I was disappointed when I actually got the book, it's way too general. It is well written, he has a nice style but it tries to cover everything, from the intimate workings of reel to reel tape machines to the details of midi setups. I would have liked to see more detail on actual recording and less general info, though if you're interested in getting a general picture of the recording industry past to present then it's an interesting read.
There are some little gems in there, but a lot of filler if you already are experienced and are looking for some more depth on certain aspects of you craft.

5.0 out of 5 stars I suggest borrowing a copy before buying but for me it sits very nicely beside othe rbooks such as the very practical, 23 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modern Recording Techniques (Kindle Edition)
I find this book generally very helpful and more broad and discussive in style and content than 'in-depth'. I suggest borrowing a copy before buying but for me it sits very nicely beside othe rbooks such as the very practical, 'Mixing Secrets For The Small Studio' by Mike Senior, the all-the-way-through-university 'Sound and Recording' by Rumsey and McCormick and 'Mastering Audio' by Bob Katz. I'd would give the book 4 stars but the online teachers resources are worth the extra star!
