Product description

Review

"Within the pages of the outstanding third edition of his book Mastering Audio: Tile Art and the Science, Katz not only demystifies the subject of mastering in a logical, well-organized way, but he has created a resource that will be equally of interest to pros and beginners … [The book] examines topics that are important in every stage of the recording process, such as properly dealing with dynamics and monitoring, or understanding dither and jitter. Katz also delves into mixing and effects processing from the standpoint of the mastering engineer and the types of problems he or she typically encounters. Consequently, Mastering Audio should be mandatory reading for anyone making music in a personal studio."

-Gino Robair, emusician.com

"An important reference book needed during these times of fast-changing audio resolution standards and delivery methods, Katz offers an easy-to understand approach to the many technical conundrums and mysteries that challenge even the seasoned professional audio engineer."

- Barry Rudolph, Music Connection

Praise for the previous edition:

"The definitive work on mastering...an indispensable resource for anyone working with audio. If you only buy one book on audio, this has to be it - it should be required reading for anyone involved with recording, producing or mastering music."
-Sound on Sound magazine

"After reading it, you will likely consider this book to be required reading for all audio professionals, regardless of technical background, who are interested in creating better sounding audio. I know that I do." - Jim Kaiser, Journal of the AES, March 2008

"I just received my book in the mail. Bob, you did a great job with the 2nd edition. This version does not read as clinical as the first edition making it an easier read. I really like the layout and updated info you put in the book."
- Glenn Bucci, Revelation Sound Studio

"Aimed at intermediate to advanced users, what sets this book apart is the liberal inclusion of practical tips, and the author's ability to be authoritative without being didactic. Even if you already do mastering, this book will help you do it better."
- Craig Anderton (editor of EQ magazine)

"I have no reservations when I recommend that every engineer working with audio purchase a copy of Mastering Audio."
- Tape Op Magazine, March/April 2008


"If you want to know what goes on behind the scenes in recording the music you enjoy; and learn more about digital audio, this comprehensive, insightful, and accessible book is without peer."
-Absolute Sound (Oct. 2007)
