Product Description

Signal Flow-Fundamental Tools of Sound Production
The first volume in the Signal Flow group of books from the Pyramind Training series covers the life cycle of sound in today's production studios; choosing the right computer, DAW, and microphones for your needs; getting the right sound from your room on a budget; and the history and practical application of synthesis.

"I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. As long as the quality of information keeps in the same realm of the Audio Fundamentals, it’s a certainty that this training series will be quite a great investment for whoever wants to succeed in this business."- Mateus Tebaldi, Music Gear Review
