Product description

From the Back Cover

Audio Production and Critical Listening develops your critical and expert listening skills that enable you to listen to audio like an award-winning engineer. The interactive ear training software practice modules give you experience identifying various types of signal processes and manipulation – for example, EQ, dynamics, reverb, distortion, and delay. Along with the clear and detailed explanations in the book, this will help you train your ears to listen and really "hear" your recordings.

Making decisions about how and when to apply sound processing effects and recording techniques can make or break a song mix. The decisions you make come down to your listening skills, what you hear and how you recognize it. Your ability to properly discern sound, identify a problem, and act accordingly – especially when the decision often needs to be made quickly – makes all the difference to the success of the final track.

*Use the interactive software modules to practice identifying commonly used audio signal processor effects. *Learn how to immediately recognize audio problems and identify the "fix" *Develop your critical listening skills for common audio signal processes
