    I just bought myself a Firebox (w/Cubase LE) and other stuff to go with it... And I'm interested in a music technology book, either something general or something that is related to Cubase. I plan to go to school for this (im a senior in high school) so I was hoping I can get ahead of the game now and learn and experiment with my equipment.

    If anyone has recommended books or perhaps online courses or something, let me know! thanks =D

    -Modern Recording Techniques by David Miles Huber & Robert E. Runstein
    -The Mixing Engineer's Handbook by Bobbi Owsinski
    -The Mastering Engineer's Handbook by Bobby Owsinski
    -The Yamaha Sound Reinforcement Handbook by Gary Davis & Ralph Jones
    -Principles of Digital Audio by Ken C. Pohlmann
    -Behind the Glass by Howard Massey

    Those are some of the books that I have bought as a music technology major over the past few years. They are all great books and filled with good material. The Sound reinforcement handbook can get a bit technical, but it's not too bad. The Pohlmann however is heavy stuff, and I have to skip over some parts of it because I don't know anything about calculus.

    I agree. The Mixing Engineer's Handbook by Bobbi Owsinski is superb, a must have. Everytime I pick it up I learn something, in fact I just spent a couple hours with it this morning and am now trying out a bunch of the techniques mentioned. :cool:
