Alan Parsons' The Art & Science Of Sound Recording


The Art & Science Of Sound Recording is a groundbreaking video tutorial series on music production, presented by multi-platinum producer Alan Parsons. More than 10 hours of original footage make this the most powerful instructional series ever created for music production. Written and presented by Dark Side Of The Moon engineer, hit record producer and artist Alan Parsons, The Art & Science Of Sound Recording looks at everything from soundproofing to mixing, and from recording guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and vocals, to recording a choir. More than 40 fellow professionals join Alan Parsons in this top quality, practical, and cutting-edge guide to modern recording, including Erykah Badu, Jimmy Douglass, Jack Joseph Puig and Simon Phillips. This invaluable instructional DVD set applies classic, old-school recording experience to the modern recording scene and will be a standard work on the subject for years to come.
