Jay Rose's book audio files


Recommended Posts

I have the disc that came with the book! Assuming that has the files you were looking for? I will gladly digitize them for you and send, assuming thats ok since you purchased the book and they were listed free on the website at one point if i am not mistaken

The files most likely still belong to either the book's publisher or to Jay's heirs. (I was Jay's editor at Digital Video magazine and helped him shape his first book. We became friends). I just sent a note to who I think is the correct and current contact at the publisher, Routledge. I asked if they can make the files available or are OK with them being shared and/or posted elsewhere (such as somewhere on this site).

 

Here's the Routledge page with a link to the defunct website.

Also, following Rick's suggestion, here's one Wayback Machine snapshot of Jay's greatsound.info site. I didn't try to download the files, but looks like they may be there:

@Jim Feeley thank you for contacting Routledge !

 

I tried Wayback Machine (thanks Rick), but because files were password protected, they were not archived - or I don't find how to access them.

 

@osa if you have the disc, it would be great if you could share me the files. My book copy is a Print-on-demand without disk, with only Jay's website adress to download the files...

Well my bad completely. even if I wanted to give you the files under the publishers proper authorization, I unfortunately was thinking of the wrong Jay Rose book that i had the cd for…

when you mentioned the audio files I remember Jay himself telling me I’d be lucky to find this book in print with the CD still included. Sorry about my mixup

Hi all

 

I am reading Jay's book "Producing Great Sound for Film and Video", and would like to listen audio example files, but the companion site doesn't work anymore (http://www.greatsound.info).

 

Does anyone previously downloaded all the audio files and pdf from the companion site and could share them to me ?

 

I have a copy of Producing Great Sound for Digital Video, second edition.  It comes with a CD.  The CD has tutorial tracks, diagnostics, and demonstrations.  Would this be an updated version of what you have?

Bernie, you have an older edition, and pretty much a different/narrower book, than the one ycainjo has. Ycainjo's book pretty much updates and expands on the one you have and the one osa has. 

 

So I've been in touch with the Routledge editors, and they're looking into all this. Basically---how can they make the files and perhaps website available again. Cool that they're responsive. Still waiting on a followup.

Hello everyone, 

 

Any updates on having these files retrieved?  I had no idea Mr. Rose had passed, I'm very sorry to hear.  This text is a fantastic teaching resource and it would be great to have access to those files again.
