A real-world guide to recording at home by Dave Hunter  

Montclair, NJ (January 9, 2012) – Backbeat Books, publisher of books for  performers and fans who are passionate about music, has published The Home Recording Handbook ($29.99) by Dave Hunter, and is now shipping to retailers and customers.  

Gone are the days when home recording was limited to four tracks of tape  hiss on a cassette porta-studio. Now, limitless digital multitrack  recording and a vast array of outboard effects and processors are  available to anyone with a computer. Add a few other essentials such as a microphone, some headphones and monitors, and  anyone can have a home studio capable of making professional recordings  worthy of airplay and release. What one might not have is the know-how  to harness all that vast potential, which is where The Home Recording Handbook comes in.

In this latest entry in Backbeat's best-selling handbook series, author  Dave Hunter shows readers how to make pro-sounding recordings without  pro budgets and expensive studios, and get great results with the gear  they have. He takes readers through tracking, mixing, and mastering, showing how to make each effective with minimal  gear. He includes tips for drums, bass, guitar, keyboard, vocals and  more.  

Packed with tips and techniques, The Home Recording Handbook is designed to open flat for use as an easy reference guide and is  supported by specially recorded audio tracks on the accompanying CD.  This is an essential volume for the working musician.
