Song Mixing Secrets: How To Fix The Most Common Mistakes (Paperback)
This book is the sequel to my first book, "Audio Mastering Secrets" the best selling audio mastering book for 2020 and 2019
If you're into audio engineering, this is a great music production book to add to your home recording studio collection. Packed with step-by-step proven methods.
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. That's what "Song Mixing Secrets" is all about
I Show You How To Quickly Fix These Common Problems -
- Mix is too crowded, no space or clarity
- Vocals can't cut through the mix
- Inconsistent levels from section to section
- Mix is too bassy, muddy
- Mix is too bright, tinny, thin
- Stereo field is weak (your song is really mono)
- And More
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 20 years to learn
