"The definitive work on indispensable resource for anyone working with audio. If you only buy one book on audio, this has to be it - it should be required reading for anyone involved with recording, producing or mastering music." -Sound on Sound magazine "After reading it, you will likely consider this book to be required reading for all audio professionals, regardless of technical background, who are interested in creating better sounding audio. I know that I do." - Jim Kaiser, Journal of the AES, March 2008 "I just received my book in the mail. Bob, you did a great job with the 2nd edition. This version does not read as clinical as the first edition making it an easier read. I really like the layout and updated info you put in the book." - Glenn Bucci, Revelation Sound Studio "Aimed at intermediate to advanced users, what sets this book apart is the liberal inclusion of practical tips, and the author's ability to be authoritative without being didactic. Even if you already do mastering, this book will help you do it better." - Craig Anderton (editor of EQ magazine) "I have no reservations when I recommend that every engineer working with audio purchase a copy of Mastering Audio." - Tape Op Magazine, March/April 2008 "If you want to know what goes on behind the scenes in recording the music you enjoy; and learn more about digital audio, this comprehensive, insightful, and accessible book is without peer." -Absolute Sound (Oct. 2007)

Notă biografică

Bob Katz played the B flat clarinet from the age of 10, and his lifelong love of sound and music led him to become a professional recording, mixing and mastering engineer, beginning in 1971. Receiving many nominations, three of Bob's recordings have garnered the prestigious Grammy(TM) award, and his work has been praised in publications such as Stereo Review, Audio, and Stereophile. Bob has written numerous articles and reviews for audio and computer publications as well as the website. Katz's processors and support gear, including patented inventions K-Stereo and K-Surround, are in use at mastering studios worldwide and fill a missing link in mastering and post-production. Bob's entertaining seminars and workshops around the world grew from his unique ability to simplify complex topics. He runs Digital Domain Studios north of Orlando, Florida, mastering all styles of music for major and independent labels.
