Making high-quality professional recordings requires the right balance of technical know-how and practical understanding of recording sessions. Getting the best audio recording results often requires as much common sense and intuitiveness in technique as it does a deep understanding of the technical elements involved. In The Art of Digital Audio Recording, expert author Steve Savage synthesizes years of professional recording experience - including 7 Grammy-nominated records - and his teaching experience as instructor in recording techniques to equip professional readers with both the essential technical as well as practical knowledge they need to succeed
