This book explores the realities of life of a professional audio engineer with business strategies for attracting and keeping clients; hiring studios; working on your own; dealing with problem artists, producers, and labels; handling a crisis (or keeping one from happening); getting paid what you're worth and being worth what you're paid.

The Business of Audio Engineering discusses how to know your value and set a rate; legally form your own company; how to work with people in general, and with clients and partners in particular.

Hampton is an engineer and technical support specialist with more than twenty-five years of music industry experience in audio engineering, production, and studio design.
