THE ART OF DIGITAL AUDIO RECORDING by Steve Savage takes beginning sound engineers on a journey through all the concepts and all the technical know-how to record, mix, and master audio using a digital audio workstation. It's for both people who want to record in their own home studio or in a professional recording studio.
It covers everything from mics and placement, signal paths, processing, and everything else you need to know to get started engineering recordkngs. I enjoyed the mixing chapter because this is where the engineer really gets to exercise creativity. The addendums at the end were helpful as well.
I've read a lot of recording books, and I really enjoyed this one and felt the author explained everything very well. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in learning how to be a recording engineer.
