Reviews - What do customers think about Sound Advice on Recording and Mixing Guitars?
A good book Jun 9, 2008
As the title says, a lot of tips about recording and mixing guitars. You surely can find similar tips searching in the web or on musical magazines, but it's very easy to have all of them (or many of them) together in one book.
Very basic stuff Dec 4, 2006
You'll find only basic but VERY basic stuff... nothing you could learn by yourself or some guy that work not even in a studio but in his own home-studio. I didn't read any information I found before on Internet for free. But if you like, there are some drawings...
light on content Feb 2, 2006
I guess you get what you pay for, but I was surprised at how little there was useful in the book beyond the absolute basics. There's really nothing on mic selection or placement. The most useful stuff is some nice breakdown of EQ ranges, which takes up a few pages.
