Abysmal

Someone churning out sub-par "how to" guides as fast as possible for money. No insight, nuance, detail, or wisdom is included. Frequent grammar and recording mistakes, as well. I don't usually give bad reviews, but this isn't just a book I didn't like: paying for this book was like someone stealing your money.

Quite useful information.

What did you like best about this story?

The book itself is an essential, easy to hear 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.

What about Marc Schindler’s performance did you like?

fantastic!!!

Any additional comments?

High recommended book for me so i also want to recommend it!!!

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. No more confusion from trying how to figure out how to get the best sound from your equipment. Home.Definitely five star !!! I love it. :-)

Very helpful

My Son is an avid musician, and he really enjoyed this book. It also helped me put some order into his instruments! Yay for that!
This book was pretty interesting to listen. It was also easy to understand and a good hear for beginner musicians.

great for beginners.

This was a great introduction for beginner to intermediate engineers and recording artists who are interested in building their own home studios. A lot of great gear recommendations and would definitely help with prioritising your purchases.
