Love it

Love this book. Listened to it in the car on to work and I have to say it has really made a difference in my studio. The positioning of the instruments and acoustics has really helped the recording quality.

Radio - Great Book

Bought this for my daughter who’s into making her own radio station. She said it has helped her lots and would recommend it. Although it’s more focused for building a music studio some of the information about acoustics and sound effects can be used for all areas of sound (radio station, youtube ect) Was really good.

Couldn't ask for more

Great insights into putting together a studio. Would recommend to most producers and artists alike. Covers so much in a short period of time. Hard to absorb all the information as there is so much - you will need to re listen to it, probably best to take notes too! Would recommend.

Plenty of tips on how to use EQ, compression

Plenty of mixing tips and frequently asked questions. I would describe this as a knowledge catalyst to speed up how fast you're able to set up a studio and start recording with excellent results.

Couldn't ask for a better book

Couldn’t ask for a better audiobook when it comes to setting up a recording environment. Is quite a short audiobook but has many good points and ideas to help you set up a music studio. Listened to this twice and enjoyed it just as much the second time!
