Customer Reviews

Excellent introduction, but partially dated. Beware: this book was written and published circa 2011. While it isn't out of touch, it isn't in touch with the current technology and programs. Much of the technical info (a small portion of the text) is now old, since the programs and computers have evolved so fast. It almost seems written in 2011 by a person still relating to experiences from 2005.Aside from that, this book has a lot of very useful information on how to set up inexpensive recording studios, how to approach projects, how to sculpt sound for a professional outcome. This primer on the nuts-n-bolts of music/sound production is what every beginner should be familiar with. If you are moderately experience, or you've studied recording thoroughly, you will probably be bored by the basic information in this book. 3A Good Place to Start I've been fooling around with home recording for a long time. I've bought several different interfaces and finally bought a Zoom R8 stand alone eight-track recorder. Much of what is in this book I already knew, but it does give some good insights on how to record, and mix specific instruments. For me, it filled in a lot of gaps.I think this is a great place to start for anybody who is just starting out. It basically takes you through the entire recording process, and gives useful advice on each stage of the process, from choosing gear, setting up a room, recording, mixing, etc.The writing is easy to follow if you know the basics of music and sound. The author makes a lot of silly jokes and puns that I found more annoying than funny. He could have left those out. 4Highly Recommended Very informative. This book will help anyone get quickly get up to speed with modern recording techniques. The author is adept at explaining terms and concepts so that the reader walks away with a solid understanding and foundation. Highly recommended. 5Free EQing Tips and Tricks Check out the FREE "Cheat Sheet" for EQing your tracks. The link is listed on this page (if you are viewing the newer edition of this item), just above the Book Description (in a box titled - More to Explore: Tips and Tricks). This is a free, no purchase required, PDF document provided by the author and publisher. I've found it to be an excellent "Quick Guide to EQing Your Tracks." To save a copy on your computer; click the "cheat sheet" link, Select "FILE" on the Adobe Reader or Acrobat menu, then SAVE AS > "PDF". My thanks to Jeff Strong (author) and "For Dummies" (publisher) for providing this free EQing reference guide. I wish that more authors and publishers would demonstrate appreciation for those who purchase their books as they have.The book itself is an essential, easy to read and understand, reference guide for musicians (and non-musicians) who are new to home recording. It is also great for older musicians, like me, who spent their formative years on a quest to perfect the analog-based world of audio recording. I highly recommend "Home Recording For Musicians - For Dummies." 5Quite useful information for "Non-Dummies"! I've been a computer music hobbyist for the last 20 years since I got a Korg M1 and the Cakewalk freeware sequencer which came with my Sound Blaster card, and through some personal research, reading manuals, and trials & errors, I came today to have quite some experience in music recording and sequencing, and I have already mounted my own home studio, but there were still a lot of "missing links" related to mastering, mic usage, etc. I can tell that this book provides a lot of these "missing links" which surely would make a song come out much more polished. I'm even learning a lot from reading the parts that I could skip on a first thought, and all information presented is clear, organized, easy to understand, and even fun! I would surely recommend this book if you're looking to mount your own home studio, or even if you already have mount and would like to polish your skills! 5Great book. I learned more reading this than I ... Great book. I learned more reading this than I did in a week of intertnet research. Guy has a sense of humor too. That always makes learning easier in my opinion. Good illustrations to convey the printed material. 5Review for Home Recording For Musicians for Dummies This book is very informative. From beginner to advanced it covers all you need to know about setting up a home studio for your musical interest. Whatever style of music your creating, from hip hop to new age, Home Recording For Musicians for Dummies gets you up and running. You will learn the basic types of equipment you need to get you started on your projects saving you time and money by avoiding purchasing equipment that can be added on to later.

Home Recording For Musicians for Dummies is a bridge that takes your creative ideas from your imagination to professional quality recordings ready to market. This book is a must read for anyone that is serious about their musical creations. Definitely five star !!! I love it. :-) 5Great Read and Helpful This is an excellent book for those starting or completing a home recording studio. Questions have been answered I had been too embarrassed to ask the real pros. This is an "easy read" and ever page of its 378 pages has pertinent information for the young or older musician (like me at 66). Could have used this book 20. years ago ! 5A friend recommended this book to me and I would do the ... A friend recommended this book to me and I would do the same to anyone else. I learned a lot and it's easy to understand and apply the new knowledge. 5Great for the price! You may be skeptical at first but the "for dummies" series always brings legit information for a pretty good price. For half the cost of other books I still get all the basics of starting my own home recording studio. It does a really good job of explaining what the basics are and what you need to keep in mind. Whether you are a full band or a one man band this book will help you get started from what equipment you may need to selling your stuff to make some serious cash. 5
