In this book, the third in the Zen and the Art Of series, Mixerman distills the inescapable technical realities of recording down to understandable and practical terms. Whether musician or self-taught recordist, whether at home or in a full-blown studio complex, you'll 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.” This book is an absolute must-have for anyone who enjoys recording music and wants to get better doing it.
- "Mixerman has done it again! 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 (not overly technical) common sense manner.” – Ron Saint Germain (300+ million in sales, U2, Whitney Houston, 311)
- “In the absence of an opportunity to apprentice in a major recording studio, this book is the next best thing. A way to learn from the best.” – William Wittman (Cyndi Lauper, Joan Osborne, The Fixx)
- “Zen and the Art of Recording describes an approach rather than a recipe. 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.” – Bob Olhsson (Stevie Wonder, Jackson Five, Marvin Gaye)
- “It's the videos here that really drive the narrative.” – Aardvark (Producer of The Daily Adventures of Mixerman Audiobook and Zen RPM ©2014
