LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Friday, September 23, 2011

Alfred Music Publishing announces the distribution of Soundtrack Success, an instructional resource guide to audio post-production, from Course Technology PTR, a division of Cengage Learning.

Soundtrack Success is a primer for those who seek to produce quality soundtracks, geared towards independent filmmakers, music composers, instructors, film enthusiasts, and all others who are involved with audio post-production. From documentaries to news shows and training video to podcasts—or any other media—Soundtrack Success reveals best-practice technique for attaining the best sound, with particular attention paid to fixing problems, sweetening sound, and pulling together a complete soundtrack. The non-software-specific instruction of the resource guide makes the book accessible to anyone who works in the audio post-production realm, regardless of program or equipment.

Lessons in the book, as well as the included DVD, teach how to maneuver dialogue, voiceover, walla, backgrounds, sound effects, Foley, and music, including how to record, edit, mix, and master for high-quality results. Detailed topic descriptions are often paired with images throughout the book to make learning more understandable and engaging. “Special Notes” are also included in the various chapters as extra tips from author Jeffrey P. Fisher.

Jeffrey P. Fisher has 25 years experience in providing music, sound, writing, video, training, and media production services to various companies. He is the author of 11 books and currently teaches at College of DuPage and DePaul University.
