I wrote Pro Tools Clinic to be the instruction book I wish I would have had around when I was learning Pro Tools.
Has saved me a few headaches.
Written very well and easy to understand. I use it as a quick reference when something unexpected happens and the clients are waiting on me to get something done. It sits on my desk right next to my 003 rack. Has both MAC and PC options in there, so make sure you are reading for the right OS options or you will be looking for a menu that isn't there.
This book is so important for understanding Pro Tools. Real world applications and a comfortable writing style make it the fast track for being the master of your own Pro Tools DAW.
Good for newbies
This book is ok.It doesnt really cover anything you wouldnt be able to find out by yourself.It resembles the low educational value of the sweetwater videos.
Pro Tools Clinic
I don't care where the author works----this is a
GOOD book. If you have a basic understanding of
terminology like pan, bus, inserts,
pre-amps, and sends, the author makes the
software understandable. He also injects a
touch of humor from time to time to keep it
from reading like a textbook.
