Apologies

I know some of you have been waiting a while for the new Vegas book, me included. However, today I approved everything from the DVD, which is the last thing to be approved, go thru legal, etc, etc, etc.

I'm thrilled to say it's gonna be here really quick now. Legal and Layout are where this stuff gets screwed up.
To make up for the wait, the DVD contains:
Nearly 1000 ACID loops
Over 50 video files
Over 50 stock stills
Over 50 different demo software (and some free) software files
Gruntload of V5/XP themes
A dozen motion backgrounds for DVDA or other uses
Over 100 veg files, some related to projects in the book, others that are just fun.
25 additional tutorials that couldn't be printed in the book due to paper weight/shipping costs. (roughly 200 pages extra)
2 bonus chapters

And more... :-) I don't want to give it all away just yet.
I felt terrible, even though it's out of my control, that the book was delayed, hence the extra, extra effort on the DVD contents to make up for it. The ACID loops alone are worth twice the cost of the book.
Special thanks to Cheno and Mitch Richardson for helping me get the book done and out by early June. The book also contains a couple really sexy veg files from Mike Chenoweth, one of them is 50 layers deep.

Thanks to you guys for your patience.

Coming out at about the same time, is the "Instant Vegas 5" book from Jeffrey Fisher and myself. Watch here on the DVInfo.net and your email boxes for announcements on that one.

Finally, we've also got "Instant Boris FX" from Chris Vadnais, which is a great intro to intermediate book on using Boris tools for Vegas and otherwise.

See the http://www.vasst.com/printproducts/bookmenu.htm page if you'd like more info.

Glenn,
Sorry, i don't check in here as often as the other forums.
We held this at the request of a manufacturer/distributor.
you'll get some nice goodies when it releases. It's shot, and was edited, but we'd included some things that couldn't pass legal department of a manufacturer.
We hope to have this ready to go in 10 days or less, just waiting on lawyers.
Wish we could just shoot, say what we want, and do what we want, but when you show/use other people's stuff...gotta keep it clean.

Hey that's cool. I'm just looking to help build my achillies heel (sp?)...aka AUDIO. Mabye I should look into the Sound Forge training DVD also. I bought the program but only use it to run my Noise Reduction filter which can be used in Vegas...go figure.

Look.... I have a friend who's a musician. Very talented- two Carnegy Hall appearances. He composed and recorded all the tracks for a documentary I shot a few years back. I also used one of his pieces in a Diamond Store commercial I shot.

Well he's looking to release a solo album but has a little difficulty with the mastering...or "final output" if you will. Some of his instrumental tracks need to be tweaked and optimized. He's primarily a pianist but has a small in-home studio which he creates music digitally. As I said I'm an audio newb, but he has a rack that's connected to his soundcard that has all sort of sample instruments, etc. I really don't understand much of it. Anyway he's been trying to use Sound Forge to help polish his tracks. Is this the right tool for him?

I told him about you and Vasst- even linked him to some of your musical works at amazon. I'd love for you to hear one of his peices and maybe tell him what it needs. Granted I know your on an incredibly tight schedule but I spoke to him today and the first person I thought of was you. Should I email you?

Geez, 1000 Acid Loops! That's a keeper. Can't wait to take a look at the other goodies.

Now THERE is a comment I gotta laugh at. At exactly the same time you posted this post, someone on the Sony forum chewed me out for the imbalance of 1000 loops vs having more video, etc on the DVD. :-) Can't please everyone, I guess.

Where do we order?

DSE:

I went to the doctor, and after numerous tests, he told me I'm just plain lazy.

I asked him for the medical term so I could tell my wife! :)

Seriously though, where (and when) can we order this DVD?

Cheers,

Andy

Plus next week we're launching the second edition of our popular Basics of DV book.

Just a reminder...there is a community discount for folks that are members of the DVinfo.net site. Just type COMM into the discount code box on the order page.

Just a quick question.

Do you cover 5.1 mixing in the book? Or do you know any references on 5.1 mixing in Vegas?

Well two quick questions.

Kind regards

Douglas, I take it that the new book with all the loops and goodies you've talked about is the one called "Vegas"?

Cheers
Aaron

The new book covers Vegas 5 pretty thoroughly, yes. 5.1 surround is in the book, and much more.
There are 2 books releasing soon on Vegas 5. First book is

"Vegas 5 Editing Workshop" which is from the CMP DV Experts series. 464 pages of printed matter, plus an additional nearly 200 pages in DVD tutorial content. Retail cost 49.99 street price around 38.00

Then there is the "Instant Vegas 5" book from the VASST series. We have our own book series distributed by CMP Books as well. They are smaller books, lower cost, no CD or DVD included. Retail price 24.99 street price around 19.00

like the one from your site but it says it was published 8/03?

The price is $33.97 Is this it?
