    just wondering if someone could recomend me some good books to read on the sound/recording type stuff. i'm looking for 101-105 course stuff, because i'm kindof starting to enjoy this whole recording thing, but i would like to read some format material (instead of google).
    if any of you could recommend me some isbn numbers, or links to a good book on amazon or half.com, i would appreciate the insite.

    This was one of my texts as well (along with The MIDI Manual by Huber and a couple others). Though my copy has become charmingly outdated in some ways (thanks to the rise of inexpensive digital recording) in the 10 years since I took my recording classes. ;) The principles are timeless though.

    That's good; also get the Yamaha Guide to Sound Reinforcement.

    What I did when first starting out was to go to my local college bookstore at the start of the semester and I bought all the Studio 101/201 books listed. Then, as it was a college bookstore, I returned the ones I didn't need within two weeks for a full refund.

    Then I got busy with my cassette four track, my SM-57 and my RS PZMs. Those were the days...

    Yeah, +1 on the Huber & Runstein, think its up to 5th edition now.

    Also in case you don't already about TapeOp its a great indie/creative recording magazine, free subscriptions too!
     
  8. Is the 5th edition reasonably up to date?
