An Amazon Book with Buzz: "Antoni: Let's Do Dinner" by Antoni Porowski
Let’s Do Dinner is an invitation into Antoni’s easy kitchen Learn more
Welcome to the enchanting world of an audio renaissance man. Steve Turnidge has been committing acts of audio magic for over a quarter century. I first met him in the R&D lab at a start-up company where he was helping design some of the industry's first MIDI and digital audio products. As the years passed he assembled the worlds first Firewire audio device on his kitchen table, cofounded one of the first Internet music companies in his living room, and carved a niche for himself as an accomplished mastering engineer in his spare bedroom. I've always wondered what drove this man to live on the edge and reach to such heights. Thanks to this book, I now understand. Come inside and take a technical, artistic, and metaphysical audio mystery tour as Turnidge reveals his passion and secrets for success. --Bob Moses, Pro audio product designer, Firewire pioneer, and AES Executive Director
This book tells the whole story! You will find the processes and the principles described in an easy-to-learn format with lots of real-world examples. Steve's experience mastering hundreds of records and the audio examples tell you step by step how to master your music, and his wisdom is insightful. I'll be recommending this book to students interested in the art and science of mastering. --Steve Malott, Producer/Engineer, Faculty, Shoreline Community College, Northwest University

Although I have 20 or so years working within the field, I learned something from every page. Sometimes it's just to clarify in my mind something that I already knew yet didn't have a clear grasp of, other times it's brand new information that was hiding just underneath the covers of well trod musical areas.
This book is a sheer joy to read. Highly recommended.
So the basic question is - this book cost 20 buck on Amazon - is your average home recordist going to get 20 bucks of value from it? Plain and simple, yes. I left my copy behind one day while eating lunch at a burger joint and am on my second copy. I am definitely getting my now-forty bucks worth. Twenty is a deal!
I also just had the chance to work with Steve on a project with my band and it was a great experience. The coolest thing is that he actually describes his whole method of working with bands in the book and you could almost follow the whole process page for page. We had a final skype session NYC to Seattle to complete the sequencing which was also great.
I loved the book and I strongly recommend it to Masters of all levels.
