    Hey, I was just hoping that I could get some recomendations on some books concerning everything about recording. Recording, mixing, mastering, mic techniques, acoustical design, etc... I would prefer the books to be very in depth and as recent as possible. Thanks!

    I apologize for not looking around on the forum prior to posting this, but if anyone has any other recommendations other than those that have already been given that would be great. I also failed to mention that I am currently reading Digital Audio Explained by Nika Aldrich. It has been extremely informative thus far. Thanks again.

    I like the Musician's Guide to Recording. Simple yet pretty deep at the same time. It's been a while since I've seen this book so I don't know how updated it is (or isn't).

    I like "The Mastering Engineer's Handbook" and "The Mixing Engineer's Handbook," both by Bobby Owsinski. Here's a link:


    I also find "Modern Recording Techniques" helpful at times: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0240804562/ref=pd_null_recs_b_t/103-2084290-1151826?v=glance&s=books

    On that note, you should also check out "The Recording Engineer's Handbook". Also by Owsinski.

    Another one is "Mixing with your mind" by Michael Stavrou (not close to correct spelling). This is a fantastic book but you can only by it from the web site. Just Google mixing with your mind.
