I’ve read the Sound Effects Bible by Ric Viers, which I would heartily recommend to anyone who hasn’t read it, Mixing practices: Tips and tricks, I can’t remember the exact title or the author of that book, but it’s very good anyway. It breaks down all the different effects and how they can be used in music, complete with a diskography of examples as illustration.


I’ve also read Mastering Music at Home and a book about critical listening, which came with an accompanying MP3 CD.


I was wondering what other books on sound design people have read that they would recommend.
