Home Studio Clinic , written from a musician's point of view, is designed to help you build and use a studio based on your musical goals, not necessarily on the assumption that you want to become a master engineer. By exploring concepts and various common tasks, this reader-friendly book gives you the know-how to choose equipment that suits your needs and style, and the techniques to use it effectively. "The goal," Menasche says, "is to spend studio time creating, not reading owner's manuals."
