Gain a deep understanding of audio practice and theory with this easy-to-read book, illustrated with more than 400 figures and photographs. Using common sense, plain-English explanations and minimal math, author Ethan Winer helps you understand audio at the deepest, most technical level-no engineering degree necessary. If you’re an intermediate to advanced recording engineer or audiophile, you already know the basic mechanics of how audio "works." This book will take you beyond that, weaving together audio concepts, theories of aural perception and acoustics, musical instrument physics, and basic electronics and demonstrating their relationships to one another. Rather than merely showing you how to use audio devices like equalizers and compressors, Winer explains how they work internally and how they are spec'd and tested.

Creative Effects: The Definitive Guide For Producers offers over 200 pages of production secrets that will help both beginners and more experienced producers and sound designers alike, accompanied by a massive 600 megabytes of before/after audio examples.
Eddie Bazil has been a professional producer, sound designer, remixer, programmer and teacher for many years, has worked with some of the best in the music industry, and his experience really shines through in this book.

Chapter by chapter, the world of effects is painstakingly explored in a very practical way, with clear screenshots of all effects including all parameter movements and selections, plus copious audio examples that illustrate each point along the way, so you understand exactly how to best use each specific effect.

All the basic effects such as reverb, chorus, delay, flange and phaser are explored, along with more unusual ones like pitch manipulation, filters and formants, harmonic distortion and source and destination modulators. A huge library of both free and carefully selected commercial VSTs are also covered with in depth explanations and screenshots showing how best to use them, so you can follow the exercises yourself and experiment as much as desired.

Each chapter is devoted to a specific effect, while the final chapter delves into the world of more extreme and creative effects, using several in series or parallel to create completely new sonic textures, from warped vocoded effects to autotuned rhythmic sequences, from pitch manipulated delays to aesthetic sweeping pads, from dark dropping cannons to ghostly whispers. It’s all here and much, much more.

This book is obviously a labour of love, and goes much further than simply explaining the functions of every control, exploring their various further creative possibilities. For instance, Reverbs are great but room ambiance recordings using a microphone or adopting Impulse Responses are equally useful but far more interesting. Tape saturation is extremely useful, as is tube/valve, but have you ever wondered how they work, what the harmonics affected are? Have you ever wondered how an Autotuned female vocal line run through a vocoder and layered with filter modulation sounds like? This type of effect is what this book is all about.
