    Home Recording for Beginners (Amazon book)

    This was written by a guy on the Reaper forums, and all of the examples are using it.

    Let me know how that is - I have this:

    ReaMix: Breaking the Barriers with REAPER by Geoffrey Francis in Computers & Internet

    ...on Mike's recommendation, and while I haven't made it all the way through yet, it's excellent.

    Alrighty, I've had a couple of days w/both of these.

    The Beginner book is good, but it's REALLY for beginners. If you're completely new to home recording, this will definitely help you out, but it's not really showing me anything new. It's all the basics - what a track is, how to pan, punch in, etc. It's very thorough and does a great job, but honestly you could pick up most of what it's teaching you in a week just fiddling with the software and reading some forums.

    The ReaMix book/digital download from Lulu, on the other hand, is excellent, and has a ton of great stuff in it about mixing, EQ, mastering, etc. Highly recommend it.

    One book that really opened my eyes on a lot of things (especially use of compressors, and making the best out of a bad recording in a mix) was this one. I've really gotta pick up a copy myself, since I borrowed it from a friend when I read it, but it's a bit pricey at $78 AUD Excellent book, though:

    Is the ReaMix book mostly a general guide or Reaper specific?
