It is a good point, for to be a Mastering Engineer.  Feb 25, 2008
Before, I really didnot know how to work with my Audio Master, and any... but after i read this book (The Mastering Engineer's Handbook), i have many ideas for to do my works.
A great Introduction To Mastering  Feb 6, 2007
Having Completed a Sound Engineers course at SAE (value for money debateable), I picked this book up because of the poor teaching in the courses' lessons on Mastering. This book was exceptional with knowledge and some "how to do's" It also lists some of the equipment usedin Mastering. I found it very useful and was able to correct my Lecturers lack of knowledge and thus help the rest of the class. I have passed this book on to most of them and the lecture even wanted to read it. Not currently available in Australia.
Didn't get 5 stars as there is a fair bit of padding out in the pages.
Now my mixes sound so much better and the best reason is that I now know why.
Excellent for beginners. I bought the whole series of three books and have read them all. I never regreted doing it and wish I had of done this earlier. Maybe spending the $10k on a course wasn't the best choice.
Exceptional value for money!!
five stars +1  Jan 10, 2007
...a great job,i wanna buy all the books of Bobby related to sound.everything is explained so friendly,so...understandable !!!
The Truth  Aug 17, 2005
The honest truth is that if you want a book telling you how to master and how to apply mastering to your work...THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR YOU. YOU'RE BETTER OFF GETTING THE BOOK BY KATZ!!! For beginners that don't have a clue where to start this book is for you. Throughout the book Bobby O explains the entire mastering from how it's done to the equipment used, how the equipment works and precautionary measures to take before mastering your work. I see why people got pissed off with this book because they wanted to know how to master their project...but instead bobby o. tells you the theory behind mastering for example, how various equipment work, mastering for different media as well as what to buy what the equipment does and the effects they have on the mix. I would recommend this book to anyone that is hesitant about mastering or doesn't have a clue about it. This book will inform you of the process from how it's done to the equipment used and so that in the end you can make your decision on whether or not you want to master your own projects. Awesome book.
Excellent book  Jul 8, 2004
There is one thing I must say here in defense of this book. Most people who have not dedicated there mind to learning the real craft of mastering may find this book boring. There are no shortcuts. This book explains every single process involved in the so called "black art" of mastering, and in great detail (with the masters). What more could you want? The techniques are there and they are plainly obvious. If you are not familiar with mastering terms and technical jargon then yes, it may be over your head. If you don't understand fundamental pitches and harmonic frequencies, then you may not understand the section on EQ. I could go on but the point is this:
Familiarize yourself with terms before you purchase this book or you will remain lost.
It has helped me tremendously
