imgMontclair, NJ (October 28, 2013)—Hal Leonard has released Beyond Mastering, the second book by mastering engineer Steve Turnidge.

In his first book, Desktop Mastering, Turnidge gave readers a tour of his unique approach to mastering, all the while providing glimpses of his mind-set and resulting workflow. Now, in Beyond Mastering, he unveils the physics and philosophy that drives the mastering engineer.
Beyond Mastering is full of guiding principles gained from Turnidge's 25-plus years in art and technology. He expresses universal truths with a mix of anecdotes, analogies and metaphors, and reveals ways to truly enjoy work and be more productive when fully integrating your profession into the rest of your life.

The book is written for the audio enthusiast who wants to get a better handle on deeper aspects of the art and craft of mastering. It is also for people who enjoy reading philosophical ideas that extend beyond routine education, and for those who want to better understand the world of audio, frequency and amplitude.

Steve Turnidge is a noted mastering engineer at UltraViolet Studios with scores of albums and thousands of licensed music tracks to his credit. Turnidge also has an electronics background as a designer for Rane Corporation, and he currently designs and fabricates modular hardware synthesizers at Synthwerks, as well as guitar pedals for Pigtronix.
