Audiobook

A very well-made audiobook. Great for all music producers who are new or experience in the field. I have been producing music for over 12 years and have learnt a great amount from this book.

Couldn't ask for more

Great insights into putting together a studio. Would recommend to most producers and artists alike. Covers so much in a short period of time. Hard to absorb all the information as there is so much - you will need to re listen to it, probably best to take notes too! Would recommend.

You'll learn more in 5 minutes on YouTube

Waste of time and a credit. Only 3 minutes of the book was actually helpful. You'll learn more in 5 minutes on YouTube. Pass on this one.

Good information. Doesn't go to much depth.

What was covered was quality information, it only went over pretty much the basic information of studio starting. You could get all of this information on Youtube.
I would recommend to someone who is just starting and listening on a car ride.
Otherwise save your money and go to YouTube.

Couldn't ask for a better book

Couldn’t ask for a better audiobook when it comes to setting up a recording environment. Is quite a short audiobook but has many good points and ideas to help you set up a music studio. Listened to this twice and enjoyed it just as much the second time!
