I'm also looking for some decent books on digital audio production/mastering, etc, so that I can understand the technical aspect of sound & production. Not exactly fruity loops related, but I figured I shouldn't clog up the board with a new topic. Anyone have (a) suggestion(s)?
Well mastering is it's own monster(Owsinski has a great book on that).
If you are looking into producing dance related music(hip hop, dubstep, dnb, trance, house, etc) then I would DEFINITELY suggest the book "Dance Music Manual" by Rick Snoman. It goes over the basics of sound, production, the typical studio, and then IN DETAIL over mixing and even mixing in particular to different genres (which is truly important as each genre calls for its own style mix for the most part).
Now if you are really wanting to dive into this and just learn audio out the ass, I have been suggested a gnarly looking book called "The Science of Sound," many many times. Although someone would have to comfirm that this book is significant as I have yet to collect the capital the buy it(i haz too many books anyways)
