For a person with a limited budget who is willing to put in the time to work through Mike’s lesson plan, Mixing Secrets is an invaluable resource. And all the while, what he's saying is presented in a way that invites you to try his methods, all of which are quite sound (no pun intended, but there it is). Mike Senior: Mixing Secrets for the Small Studio (book) | Tape Op Magazine | Longform candid interviews with music producers and audio engineers covering mixing, mastering, recording and music production. The contents of the book are the result of interviews of dozens of veteran producers who have had to work with all kinds of equipment and in all kinds of spaces. If you've been figuring out everything yourself or piecing together your workflow based on Internet forum posts, this book may bump your work forward by months or years.

Vintage King co-founder Michael Nehra shares some of his love, knowledge, and practical advice for diving into the world of vintage audio gear, and then takes us behind the scenes for a walk through. Many books have been published about mixing, but in all honesty I'd say Mixing Secrets is easily the most practical, complete and ultimately satisfying that I've read so far. The most useful, up-to-date and comprehensive book I've read on the labyrinthine subject of mixing music. At this point the edition I read is a bit long in the tooth (10 years old) which means that some of the details of technologies are dated, and the author sometimes cracks little jokes that I don't understand - I think they're probably hilarious if you're British, but my American mind doesn't make it there.Always seeking new challenges, though, he eventually left the magazine to set up his own training and consultancy business, while also freelancing as an engineer and SOS author. Much of it is beyond what I want or need to do -- the audience is people doing home mixing who want to make professional-sounding tracks. He really covers the different uses of that effect, and the five different aspects of it you’ll looking at with the effect. As a project studio operator, Mixing Secrets has been the single resource I can point to that got me over the hump and into the territory where I can begin seriously competing with established professionals - all while remaining on a humble budget.

On the way, you'll unravel the mysteries of every type of mix processing, from simple EQ and compression through to advanced spectral dynamics and "fairy dust" effects. The book is structured in a progressive fashion, following a logical mixing workflow, and developing and building on ideas and techniques throughout.

He really explains all the different controls and parameters of compression, but then gives you no real idea how to use it on individual instruments, aside from generalities. So, how are we supposed to get a release quality mix done, if we don’t even know where to start with the two most important effects?

htm), with numerous illustrative audio files, links to recommended software and other resources, and — most impressively — a wide variety of high‑quality bespoke multitrack material to enable readers to practice and develop their mixing skills and processing techniques. Additional value is derived by providing a firm and comprehensive foundation of mixing fundamentals. Example, most books on recording will remind you to listen to your mixes from multiple sources (monitors, headphones, car, etc.Rather, he shows various methods, explaining that not every method would work for every mix and even provides links to find out more about the different schools of thought. After starting to dabble in doing some home recordings and simple mixes, I skimmed this book over a period of several months. Mixing Secrets for the Small Studio is the best-selling primer for small-studio enthusiasts who want chart-ready sonics in a hurry. User-friendly explanations introduce technical concepts on a strictly need-to-know basis, while chapter summaries, assignments, and extensive on-line resources are perfect for school and college use.
