This first edition comes with a free drum processing video where Amos shows you how to get fat, smackin’ and punchy drums. The video is packed with audio examples and explanations on the principles behind the processing. A must-watch!
Flip to any page, read the technique, and apply it. It’s really that simple. This is not a book that trawls relentlessly through the world history of mixing before providing any useful advice. It simply gets straight into the business of giving you real tried and proven mixing tips that actually work. And there’s plenty to keep you busy. The book covers processing such as compression, equalization, panning, parallel compression, transient manipulation, harmonic distortion, delay based effects and much more. The real value is how combinations processing work to create magic in your mixes.
This book contains mixing techniques that could create the mixing break-through you’ve been looking for! Do you need solid, punchy drums; a lead vocal that really sits solidly and clearly in the mix; more definition and clarity to your entire mix? All these and more are ready and waiting.
