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.

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!

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.

Good book idea, bad book.

Scattered content with a dull, robotic narrative. Though the info is valid, there are no “secrets” in this book. You’ll find more insightful and up-to-date info doing a simple Google search on home recording studios.

Radio - Great Book

Bought this for my daughter who’s into making her own radio station. She said it has helped her lots and would recommend it. Although it’s more focused for building a music studio some of the information about acoustics and sound effects can be used for all areas of sound (radio station, youtube ect) Was really good.
