Russ Hughes (www.Pro-Tools-Expert.com): "We took a look at it and were impressed by the care and attention to detail." Mike Thornton, Sound on Sound Pro Tools columnist and deputy editor of Pro Tools Expert: "I did appreciate the book, even as a long standing Pro Tools user I found a number of useful features, not least of which the comparison between all the different types of Pro Tools." The famous sound engineer Bob Katz presented the original version with an enthusiastic: "Simone is the best person I could think of to take you there." This clear and concise guide takes the reader by the hand through the first steps in the use of Pro Tools, the audio system born twenty years ago and adopted by some of the best professionals worldwide. The title (stopwatch in hand) is accurate for those who can't wait to get stuck into their new software. However, this guidebook is crammed full of so many theoretical and practical tips, tricks, and points to explore at leisure that you are sure to enjoy many hours (and cups of coffee) poring over these pages. This is an essential reference tool for anyone taking Pro Tools for a quick test drive and will be cherished by everyone who is on the road to becoming a better sound engineer.

Bob Katz's enthusiasm is well deserved, as the book gives a complete and clear introduction to Pro Tools's fundamental concepts and functionalities, without falling in the usual traps of tediousness and repetition typical of many guides.
As a forensic audio professional, I am no stranger to many of the DAW concepts explained in this book, but I managed to read through Corelli's concise treatment of buses, paths and plugins without the hint of a yawn.
The troubleshooting chapter is likely to be the result of a fair amount of the author's blood, sweat and tears spilled in front of a Pro Tools workstation. While by no means exhaustive, the advice encountered there was good enough to get me out of trouble on many an occasion.
The style of the guide is very practical and easy to follow but Corelli's strong theoretical background transpires throughout the book; the words "level", "loudness" and "headroom" are used with the due reverence and explored further in a dedicated sub-chapter.
Footnotes tend to have a bad reputation, however I strongly advise the reader to find the time to go through them, as some of the stuff will occasionally surprise even the most experienced of professionals.
