Whether musician or self-taught recordist, at home or in a full-blown studio complex, you’ll hopefully discover a definitive blueprint for recording within the current realities of the business, without ever losing focus on the core consideration - the music itself. as Mixerman writes: “the moment you start to think in musical terms, your recordings will improve a hundredfold.”
“Mixerman has done it again,” says ron saint Germain, a producer-engineer with over 300 million in sales that includes u2, Whitney houston, 311, and more. “With his signature humorous and entertaining style, he imparts a world of invaluable information for the aspiring recordist and musician in an easy to absorb commonsense manner.”
“Zen and the art Of recording describes an approach rather than a recipe,” adds Bob Olhsson - stevie Wonder, Jackson Five, Marvin Gaye among others. “this is important because in the real world nothing works the same way every time. this is an excellent overview of the issues to be considered, along with a broad variety of proven techniques for addressing them.” Visit www. halleonardbooks.com for more!
