The Art of Mixing Book Review:

David Gibson uses 3D visual representations of sounds in a mix as a tool to explain the dynamics that can be created in a mix. This book provides an in-depth exploration into the aesthetics of what makes a great mix. Gibson’s unique approach explains how to map sounds to visuals in order to create a visual framework that can be used to analyze what is going on in any mix. Once you have the framework down, Gibson then uses it to explain the traditions that have be developed over time by great recording engineers for different styles of music and songs. You will come to understand everything that can be done in a mix to create dynamics that affect people in really deep ways. Once you understand what engineers are doing to create the great mixes they do, you can then use this framework to develop your own values as to what you feel is a good mix. Once you have a perspective on what all can be done, you have the power to be truly creative on your own – to create whole new mixing possibilities. It is all about creating art out of technology. This book goes beyond explaining what the equipment does – it explains what to do with the equipment to make the best possible mixes.

Song Mixing Secrets Book Review:

Book #2 in the Music Production Secrets Series by John Rogers. In this book, I show you how to quickly recognize mixing errors and how to fix them. Which will take your projects to the next level! Since 1999, I've mastered over 40,000 songs in every genre imaginable. Working with this many clients gave me the rare opportunity to discover what areas most sound engineers are having problems with. Most of the mixes clients submit are pretty good. The mixer definitely does not need to read a 400 page book on basic mixing techniques, or take a six week mixing course. They're way beyond that. What they do need is a book that points out the most common mixing errors I see daily, so they can check their mixes for them. Problems they don't even realize their mixes suffer from. And then, use the information in this book to correct these problems. Which takes their songs to the next level! That's what "Song Mixing Secrets" all about! This book is for someone who has a good understanding of basic mixing procedures. Sometimes as a solution to a problem, I might suggest compressing the lead vocal a bit. But, I don't get into detailed threshold and ratio settings. I assume you already know how to compress a vocal track. I wrote this entire book in simple plain English (layman's terms). I eliminated all the words you never heard of and hi-tech jargon, so anyone at any level can understand and learn from this book. You've invested hundreds, if not thousands, of hours into your music. If you're serious about it, now's the time to make a very small financial investment in this book so your music will sound the very best it can! I wrote this book so you can quickly learn (in a matter of days) the techniques, tips, and secrets that took me over 19 years to learn!

Mixing and Mastering in the Box Book Review:

Mixing and mastering are the final challenges in creating great recordings. Great mixes require both creativity and a practical understanding of process, while final masters require both a clear sense for purpose and specialized ears for achieving artistic goals. Mixing and Mastering in the Box gives readers the practical tools for accomplishing both of these tasks while highlighting the artistry of the creative process. While much of the information presented in Mixing and Mastering in the Box is applicable to those using analog mixing gear, or a hybrid of digital and analog tools, the book focuses directly on working completely within the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). Author Steve Savage lets readers in on such topics as the secrets of collaboration and using EQ, compression, delay, reverb, and brickwall limiting to improve the sound of records, each topic illustrated with a myriad of concrete examples. Mixing and Mastering in the Box is the ultimate reference manual for the home recordist and the perfect basic to intermediate text for any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) training class in mixing or mastering. The book is also ideal for readers who handle their own mixing and mastering or who wish - or are professionally required - to be better informed when collaborating on mixes and masters.

Audio Mastering Secrets Book Review:

The #1 Best Selling Audio Mastering Book for 2018 and 2019! Audio Mastering Secrets is one of the first audio mastering books that focuses entirely on how to master audio to radio quality standards, all from the comfort of your home recording studio. No expensive gear required to get amazing results! Note: This is a full 184 page book, not a 40 page mini. Written by John Rogers of JR Mastering. Since 1999, I have mastered over 40,000 songs for over 7,500 highly satisfied clients. Let me personally show you everything I've learned! My book covers the following: This Book Is An 8.5 x 11 Learning Guide It focuses on how to master audio, how to become a great audio mastering engineer, and how not to be a bad one. I do not get into the specific brands of gear you should buy, the history of sound engineering, or 1,000's of compressor settings (of which maybe 40 you'll ever use). In this book I focus on mastering audio! Common Mastering Problems And Their Solutions In audio mastering, you will face common problems like a mix being too thin, tinny, distorted, over-saturated, muddy, or not bright enough. Sometimes you can't get the song loud enough, boomy enough, no separation, too much bass, no sparkle, and many other problems. I explain in detail which effects processors to use and their exact settings to solve these common problems. This is a great tool to refer back to when needed. My Step-By-Step Audio Mastering Session You will learn the 18 steps I take in the audio mastering process. From importing your file, down to loudness maximization and finally exporting a perfectly mastered song! This Entire Book Is Based On Real-World Experiences Not on theory, what I learned in school, what I heard from some other engineer, etc. I have mastered over 40,000 songs for over 7,500 highly satisfied clients. I teach from real world experiences and success. Mastering Different Genres Here s where I break down the sonic qualities of sixteen different genres. How much brightness, bass, boominess, compression, etc., you re trying to achieve for each genre. And several tips on what clients are looking for. My Audio Mastering Laws In this section, I cover a series of dos, do nots, and facts that basically apply to all audio mastering jobs regardless of genre. I also cover several pitfalls you will experience (just like I did) as an audio mastering engineer, and how to get through them. Setting Up You're Listening Environment In this section I cover calibrating your speakers, learning your speakers, speaker placement and room size. And, the myth about soundproofing your room. The Effects Processors Used In Audio Mastering The basics of what they all do, how to use them, when to use them, and my initial settings templates. This Book Is A Very Easy Read I left out all the high-tech jargon and rarely used words that slow down sentence flow. Written In 2017 In this book I work with common software and a digital DAW system, using current audio mastering techniques for this day and age. I show you how to get great mastering results using your home PC, DAW, plugin software, and basic hardware. No expensive old-school equipment required. And Much More! In a matters of weeks, you can learn all of the audio mastering secrets, tips, and techniques that took me over 19 years to learn!
