Written in the author's clear conversational style, with ample illustrations and visual analogies, this book features software agnostic tutorials and "e;cookbook recipes"e; for each phase of postaudio processing. The author begins with a section of FAQs from readers of the author's magazine column. After summarizing the significant points of audio theory, the author describes the preliminaries of setting up a post studio. From there he details every aspect of postproduction - from getting the tracks into the computer, to 'fixing and mixing,' to dealing with details of compression and streaming. The companion audio CD contains diagnostics, tutorial tracks, and demonstrations.
