I have to take my hat off to him for putting in the effort to do this and I hope that he finishes it off and that people are able to put it to good use. I actually didn't read the why section (went to some of the other chapters).
One thing that did make me laugh (and I am not being critical here) was the disclaimer at the bottom of the page that read “Not responsible for typographical errors”.
I just submitted a 3500 word (fully researched and referenced) paper and I wish that I had put that on the bottom of it!!
has a really good guide to mixing
i have learnt a lot from spirit brochures
many a night spent looking at brochures of desks like the SX and the FX16 trying to work out what each knob and button did
i say, the MH4 looks fun
it lends some relevance to the joke what does a sound guy get on an iq test?
Yes, Kai's handbook is a great resource, although he hasn't updated in ages (and he knows a whole tonnnnnn more now, LOL). Although it was written quite some time ago, for those who don't know, Kai is now the associate sound designer to Tony Meola, one of the top designers on Broadway. He's worked with Tony on Wicked and A Christmas Carol at Radio City Music Hall, among many, many others.
Not to mention that, on the few brief encounters I've had with him, he's seemed a pretty cool dude.
