What to look and listen for in a recording environment ? Straightforward advice on recording almost any instrument ? Essentials of digital audio workstations ? Essentials of recording gear: microphones, mixers, and speakers ? Fundamentals of understanding and applying EQ, compression, delay, and reverb ? Secrets to running creative recording sessions ?

How to walk into a commercial studio and be the engineer ? Researching and buying gear: Internet vs. brick and mortar ?
