"...you'll find that the audio concepts, terminology, and schematics are all explained in terminology that visual people can grasp pretty easily. Jay Rose is one of those audio technicians that's had to work with visual people long enough to learn how to speak in such a way that their eyes don't glaze over." -Jeremy Hanke, MicroFilmmaker Magazine (online review).
Written in the author's clear conversational style, with ample illustrations and visual analogies, this book features software agnostic tutorials and "cookbook recipes" for each phase of postaudio processing.

After summarizing the significant points of audio theory, the author describes the preliminaries of setting up a post studio. From there he details every aspect of postproduction - from getting the tracks into the computer, to 'fixing and mixing,' to dealing with details of compression and streaming.
