Alan Parsons - GREAT reference DVD

Every step of the recording chain... hardware and techniques are reviewed in a thoughtful, clear manner. I could not be happier with my purchase and will be reviewing this dvd over and over again.

Tired of looking back to your volunteer soundman pastors?

well, here is a instructional dvd for your churches sound/video ministries volunteers. You won't regret this investment plus will absolutely save you "some" $$$$$$$. That's right, small to mega churches, your analog and digital boards will thank you for this. If these mixing boards could speak, they would rather slap that arrogant wanna be sound engineers volunteer on your sound ministry. Just kidding, well true for me but anyways. I learned even much more with this and will definitely show it to our volunteers in our video and sound ministry. your main sound engineer will absolutely love it and will save them time for crash courses. Plus, you can always go back and review a certain/specific subject such as graphic and parametric EQ, compression/limiters, filters, noise gates, attacks, Ratios, release, saturations, This instructional dvd is absolutely the best. Nice video work who ever edit this dvd. awesome!

Great gift for a musician

Gave this to The Boyfriend for his birthday and he wouldn't stop talking about it! Was a great gift and definitely worth the money to see his excitement. I watched a segment of the first disc with him and I have to admit it was very interesting and a well-made instructional video. My only worry is that I ruined any future gifts – they won't be near as good!

Indispensable bank of knowledge for beginners to pros!

Excellently produced, in-depth program put together by Alan Parsons, with some narration by Billy Bob Thornton. These dvds discuss in pretty fair detail all that is listed in the product description; nothing is really just 'touched on'. It's well-paced with interviews, examples, Alan's own discussion, and animations. Alan and all who are interviewed have a lot of knowledge to share here, and I enjoyed watching the whole thing and learned a lot more than I thought I would. Think of it this way; would you pay 150.00 to go spend several hours with Alan Parsons as he talks with you and works with you on all these aspects of recording? It's worth every penny, and I feel any musician or engineer/producer down to home hobbyists can glean some great info from this set. Recommended all the way.

Always good to refresh!!

The best part of this video is that Parsons builds a new studio to work in, so you get to see all the work that goes into designing a studio. I wish there was more of this and much less salivating over old gear I will never get my hands on. Overall, especially the latter section on EQ and compression, are a great visual on what you read in all the studio manuals.

Sweetwater Advice

Robby Resnick

The Alan Parsons Art & Science of Sound Recording DVD set is outstanding to say the least. From the beginning, I was impressed with the depth of concepts provided, and Alan's ability to keep things light. Smartly, one of the first chapters is on acoustics, which many budding engineers overlook. I strongly recommend this pack.
