9780072231755: The Musician's Guide to Pro Tools

This expertly written guide will show you exactly why Pro Tools shrinks a full music studio into a computer, replacing the bulky recording infrastructure of multi-track analog mixing boards and rolls of two-inch-wide magnetic tape. Ideal for beginning, intermediate, and advanced producers, sound engineers, and musicians.

Review:

"Keane's step-by-step manual is a wonderful roadmap that not only teaches how to navigate the seemingly impenetrable thicket of Pro Tools but points out shortcuts, safety hazards, and tucked-away pieces of interest we would only have stumbled upon much, much later." Patricia J. Priest, PhD., Independent Producer for Public Radio and Adjunct Faculty, Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Georgia. "I'd recommend this book to anyone, whether beginner or expert." Peter Buck, guitarist for R.E.M. "If I could have purchased this book/CD training course before I started recording with Pro Tools, I could have saved countless hours of brain wrenching and profanity spouting. If you want to spend your valuable time creating music and not cussing your computer, The Musician's Guide to Pro Tools[registered] is an absolute must-have." Rick Fowler, Musician and Audio Engineer"
