BOOK EXCERPT:

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!

BOOK EXCERPT:

"A visual portrait that delves into the people and processes behind self-recorded music, featuring some of the biggest names in music today. Everywhere you look musicians are creating, recording, and selling their music without the help of big-name studios, producers, or labels. Written by Spencer Tweedy, this book offers tangible-and visually stunning-proof that self-recording is the future of the music industry. Each chapter takes on a specific aspect of self-recording through original interviews with musicians and all new photography, revealing the joys and complications of writing songs you record yourself, how to eke out your best performances without the aid of a producer, and how mixing and arranging independently can lead to a distinct, cohesive sound. You'll hear how some of your favorite musicians charted their path to self-recording and how emerging technologies and trends could make independently produced records the rule, not the exception. Famed music-world photographer Daniel Topete provides further inspiration with his intimate shots of artists recording in living rooms, back yards, and garages-such as Eleanor Friedburger, Mac DeMarco, Vagabon, Tune-Yards, Yuka Honda and more. The first book devoted entirely to the practice of self-recording, Mirror Sound charts a way forward for any musician who aspires to make their own music and send it out to the world on their own terms"--

BOOK EXCERPT:

Classic Keys is a beautifully photographed and illustrated book focusing on the signature rock keyboard sounds of the 1950s to the early 1980s. It celebrates the Hammond B-3 organ, Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos, the Vox Continental and Farfisa combo organs, the Hohner Clavinet, the Mellotron, the Minimoog and other famous and collectable instruments. From the earliest days of rock music, the role of keyboards has grown dramatically. Advancements in electronics created a crescendo of musical invention. In the thirty short years between 1950 and 1980, the rock keyboard went from being whatever down-on-its-luck piano awaited a band in a bar or concert hall to a portable digital orchestra. It made keyboards a centerpiece of the sound of many top rock bands, and a handful of them became icons of both sound and design. Their sounds live on: Digitally, in the memory chips of modern keyboards, and in their original form thanks to a growing group of musicians and collectors of many ages and nationalities. Classic Keys explores the sound, lore, and technology of these iconic instruments, including their place in the historical development of keyboard instruments, music, and the international keyboard instrument industry. Twelve significant instruments are presented as the chapter foundations, together with information about and comparisons with more than thirty-six others. Included are short profiles of modern musicians, composers, and others who collect, use, and prize these instruments years after they went out of production. Both authors are avid musicians, collect and restore vintage keyboards, and are well-known and respected in the international community of web forums devoted to these instruments.
