As a trio of friends playing and recording for fun, this book provides an excellent introduction to equipment available, how to use it, best microphones to use for vocals, guitars, etc. Goes into some depth without being too technical as a hands-on guide should be. Covers all aspects of home recording from what to buy, through setting up and recording, the various options in hardware and software (including MIDI), to post-production techniques and even how to produce (or get produced) your own CD. 2009 edition so it's up to date. Great value for money with the usual touch of "Dummies" humour, highly recommended.

I basically bought this book because i wanted to learn about home recordings, and had very little knowledge to begin with.

The book is fantastic...very well written in clear plain everyday english for most people to understand. Throughout the chapters, i generally found more or less everything to be quite informative. I've learned so much from this text its fantastic. My advice to any amateur/beginner wanting to learn about home recordings is to buy this book without doubt.
