Boston, MA (September 10, 2004)–Producer David Franz broadens his instruction from software-centric expertise to a wider spectrum of recording and producing in his new book, Recording and Producing in the Home Studio–A Complete Guide. David Franz, author of Berklee Press’ Producing in the Home Studio with Pro Tools, and instructor of Berkleemusic.com’s “Producing With Pro Tools,” has again teamed up with Berklee Press to release what he describes as an “all-encompassing home studio self-production guide.”
Radical, recent advances in home studio technology have given artists the ways and means to produce professional recordings at a fraction of the cost. Franz discusses how artists, songwriters, bands or aspiring producers can engineer or produce their own recordings in a home studio and provides a wealth of information for anyone looking to gain a better understanding of musical production. Recording and Producing in the Home Studio–A Complete Guide covers producing and recording basics, as well as professional engineering, mixing and mastering techniques.
The book includes diagrams and cost-effective setup suggestions for creating a home studio. It also includes a comprehensive user’s guide to many of the popular microphones as well as practical advice on miking drums, bass, guitar, vocals and wind instruments. Franz addresses the growing popularity of digital audio workstations and covers mixing, editing and mastering in some of today’s most popular software programs.
The book is published by Berklee Press, the publishing arm of Boston’s Berklee College of Music, and continues the publisher’s commitment to provide musicians with some of the most up-to-date and comprehensive resources available in the marketplace.
