Book Description

Jan. 1 2006 Music Sales America
(Music Sales America). In music recording, the quality of a mix is every bit as important as the quality of the performance, and potential hit singles have been ruined by poor mixing. This helpful guide blows the lid off the secrets of mixing and explains in easy and illustrated terms how you can create a professional-quality recording with even the most basic equipment.

the problem with music recording and mixing is that everything is open to interpretation. unlike say... earth science where this is gravity (9.8) and it's constant and unbreakable, music has no strict rules. as such, this book is very informative but does not and can not give strict detail.
what i was looking for was a sort of cookbook that gives me different genres of music and there typical basic mixing position s from which i could create a derivative mix. what i got was a book that gives you enough information to let you make those pan, balance, eq, and effects decisions for yourself.
what i got was much better than what i was looking for!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a book that's practical and applicable. March 8 2001
Get this book! This little book (literally - it's a little bigger than a palm pilot) is five chapters packed with 175 pages, including the glossary. It is worth more than books twice its size, with twice the content. I started in music doing rap, hiphop and electronica so I got my experience from doing talent shows, contests, and parties and later in college playing gigs in a band, and later going totally digital on a PC. I never went to school for this stuff, so what I wanted was some indepth tips and techniques to polish my sound. Most other books are extremely intellectual and contain very little practical-wise for someone who already has some experience. You'll learn all the correct words and terminology for what you've already done from experience. Now you can take a written test and pass with an A. But it won't help you recording wise. Also typical books will only give advice on your standard pop or rock recordings. I'm doing techno which pretty much goes by its own rules. No reverb on the bass track? Yeah right! This book gives you practical techniques, tips and advice on a whole lot of stuff!! Effects techniques, recording vocals, balance, mix automation and little tricks for getting around little shortcomings your gear may have. And it gives you alternatives for different styles of music. First I was a little nervous when I saw how little it was. And it came a big 'ole box. I was like, "oh no, I wasted my money again." But believe me this book delievers!! It gives new meaning to "put it in da mix!"

This book is a must have for anyone who is interested in becoming or is an engineer/mixer. I have been a professional engineer/producer for 6 years and purchased this book for my girlfriend who's studing music technology, I read through with interest and found it to be very clearly laid out full of useful information for anyone involved in music production. It has been written so as not to be above anyones understanding and makes reference to the other books in the series with a brief explanation of the topic in question. All aspect of Mixing are approched including how to get the best recording before you consider the mixing process, arrangments and basic recording techniques for all instruments. My advice is to all musicians go and buy this book even if your not an engineer so as you may have an understanding of the whole concept. Excellent book very informative everyone buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I found it very useful. April 29 2003
When my friends decided to make a band as a joke, I decided I'd pick this up. When a few of my friends decided to each learn a musical instrument at the same time, we thought it'd be fun to get together and make some really awful music under the guise of a fake band name. Yes, we're awfully bored an awful lot. After some thought, I thought I'd learn drums and perhaps some mixing on the side. With the help of this affordable little handbook, I was able to not only play some [bad] drums, but [bad] remix it when I was done. What could be better than that! Obviously, with my incredibly low expectations, I found this book to be very good. I guess that probably doesn't help much though, huh.

4.0 out of 5 stars For ten bucks, you can't miss. March 1 2001
This book is a small palm-size book which you can read in several hours. It reads well, the advice is sound and I found the answers to several questions, and several other suspicions (common sense items) were confirmed.
This book packs a whallop for the size it comes in. I would like to see this be a real 8.5 x 11 book. It was a heck of a lot more interesting that the "CD Home audio course" which I am returning. I'm keeping this one.
This book proves size does not matter. The content is solid and he didn't fill up a bunch of pages with common sense stuff.
Could use more illustrations, but then again it is a perspective book, not a tutorial.
