Foreword by Sir George Martin

Mike Stavrou came to work with me in London at the old Air Studios in Oxford Circus - a long time ago. He was not the run of the mill sort of extrovert recording engineer that one expects in a busy studio and I was struck by his quiet and modest way of going about his tasks....

Physical Book

I'm enjoying your book. I'm so glad you don't have a digital copy as I would have bought it, and would not have been able to enjoy the lovely physical object that it is, so thanks. (I really like the built-in bookmark - so awesome!) MD - Ormiston, Qld

Research from Millward Brown and Bangor University strongly suggests that greater emotional processing is facilitated by the physical material than the virtual and that tangible materials leave a deeper footprint in the brain. Physical materials stimulate both sight and touch. It also concluded that physical material involves more emotional processing which is important for memory.

Digital Speak vs Analog Speak

You'll notice that throughout the book I talk as though the signal path is analog. This is intentional because digital, at its very best, merely strives to be analog. So the sooner you start thinking analog the closer you'll be to understanding audio and producing great sounds. Stav
