Sorry to disappoint you, but Real World Digital Audio will not be a new MTV reality show where participants live together in a boozed-up recording studio for a few months and have “issues” with their fellow audio engineers. Though I’m still holding out hope for that.

No, Real World Digital Audio is my long-delayed book for Peachpit Press . . . and if you’ve noticed I’ve gotten increasingly flaky keeping CDM together, especially this week, the good news is I’m finally finishing the manuscript this week. Expect a party afterwards — and more on the book itself, once I can share a bit more. Most importantly: this book will be out by the end of the year.

Anyway, think we can rip off the image shown here for the cover?
