Today's hottest home-studio trend is the revival of analog recording. Everyone knows that digital is convenient, consistent, and reliable, but if you want the warm, live sound of real music, you need to allow analog back into the mix. The good news is that the equipment you need is still out there, and surprisingly affordable. This book tells you how to find, maintain and use: analog tape machines, analog mixing consoles and monitors, vintage and vintage-style microphones, analog reverberation, echo, compression and limiting. The book also takes you through the process of building a home studio and a live echo chamber. And there are hints and tips from the analog experts: engineers and producers who have worked with everyone from Phil Spector, Sonny & Cher, The Beach Boys and The Beatles through to Nirvana, Maroon 5, Paul Westerberg, and The White Stripes. The package includes an 11-track audio CD that demonstrates what you can achieve when you bring the human sound of analog into your digital home studio.

Comments about Backbeat Books Analog Recording - Using Vintage Gear in Home Studios (Book):
This book is fantastic. It explanes EVERYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED TO KNOW about analog recording in your home studio. If you want to create a studio that is 100% analog like i am doing, or just want a tape machine to warm up the cold, thin sound of computer recording this book can help. It explaines how to buy, service, set up, and use everything from tape machines to mixers to microphones and monitors. Very good, informative, book. Buy it if you are planing on going analog! Besides, 90% of the information in here can't be found on the internet.
The included CD was a great example of what analog can do to your music.
Plenty of information for the price
