"This sounds like a book I want!" — Jim Creeggan, Bare Naked Ladies

"Roger Ginsley's vast knowledge and experience of all things electronic and its practical application not only in a recording studio, makes him the perfect authority to create this ultimate reference. His calm, thoughtful demeanour and erudite approach have untangled me from the spaghetti world of studio wiring many times. Perhaps he can save you, too." — Alex Lifeson, Rush

"I only wish that this book was available when I was starting out. Having all this information together in one book is incredible, especially when it comes from someone with the wealth of knowledge and experience that Roger has. Could have saved me a lot of grief along the way! A rare gem and a 'must-have' for anyone who is serious about professional recording." — Sam Reid, Glass Tiger

"You've always done top-notch work for my studio." — Geddy Lee, Rush
