How Does It Sound Now? Legendary Engineers and Vintage Gear

Book Description

This book interviews 25 of the most famous previous and current audio engineers, including Phil Ramone, Eliot Sheiner, George Massenberg, Al Schmitt, and many more, and explores their use, methodology, and in some cases, invention of classic analog recording hardware. This gear, so new and innovative in the sixties and seventies, is still coveted by many audio professionals as vintage or classic gear today. T These engineers lived through and defined the transition from analog to solid state to digital, combining new and old every step of the way. A priceless addition to the bibliography of audio books for its inclusion of the wisdom of these engineers.
