Overview

This is an engaging account of some of the most memorable moments in New York's recording history, as seen through the eyes (and ears) of the many producers, engineers, songwriters, and recording artists who helped make them happen. It explores the explosive 30 years between 1950 and 1980 and the numerous ingredients that made them unique - artists performing live in large, vibrant recording spaces, producers and engineers spontaneously creating new effects and techniques; composers writing parts on demand in the studio; and, most important, recording studios that had life, character, and their own fingerprint sound.

Studio Secrets For Sale!

By Tarzanalog

from Quad-Cities, USA

An interesting read. I was given this as a gift and waited almost 3 months to begin reading it. Why, I don't know... It's full of valuable tips like when you're shorts on tracks... mix the bass drum and hats together and then you can adjust their levels relative to each other with the tone controls... GENIUS. Also great if you're fans of the artists mentioned but an interesting peek inside the studios they recorded in awaits you inside. A good value and you're library probably won't have it, so get one online before it's out of print.
