Producer David Franz broadens his instruction from software-centric expertise to a wider spectrum of recording and producing in his new book, Recording and Producing in the Home Studio—A Complete Guide. Franz, author of Berklee Press’ Producing in the Home Studio with Pro Tools, and instructor of the Berkleemusic.com “Producing with Pro Tools” online course, again teams with Berklee Press to release what he describes as an “all-encompassing home studio self-production guide,” that “follows the entire musical production process from start to finish.”
Franz discusses how artists, songwriters, bands or aspiring producers can engineer or produce their own recordings in a home studio and provides a wealth of information for anyone looking to gain a better understanding of musical production. Recording and Producing in the Home Studio covers producing and recording basics, as well as professional engineering, mixing and mastering techniques.
The book includes diagrams and cost-effective setup suggestions for creating a home studio. It also includes a comprehensive user’s guide to many of the popular microphones as well as practical advice on miking drums, bass, guitar, vocals and wind instruments. Franz addresses the growing popularity of digital audio workstations and covers mixing, editing and mastering in some of today’s most popular software programs.
