Engineer Bruce Swedien has been responsible for putting some of the most inspired and iconic sounds ever captured on tape. He participated in signature albums with Michael Jackson including Off the Wall, Thriller, Bad, Dangerous, Invincible and HIStory as well as records with Quincy Jones and many others. Here in this Legacy Series book complete with DVD-ROM, Swedien explains how he does what he does.

He talks about the techniques used in recording drums, guitars, keyboards, vocals, strings, brass, bass and drum sounds. He explains why he uses certain microphones and how he uses them most effectively.

This is a remarkable book that contains all his secrets. The accompanying DVD-ROM contains behind-the-scenes footage of the author running through a mix and describing the reasons for the process. A truly valuable resource for both novice and professional.
