If you’re new to mixing and aren’t sure what to do, or your mixes aren’t anywhere near where you’d like them to be, then The Music Mixing Workbook is exactly what you need. It features hands-on exercises that teach you all the things that make a mix sound great, as well as all the things to avoid along the way.
For the next 2 days, you can get the ebook launch special for just $1.99! [Sorry, that deal is over. It’s now $4.99] All I ask is that you leave a comment on Amazon if you buy it.
Designed to meet the needs of anyone relatively new to or confused about the once mysterious process of mixing multiple music elements together, the book features 175 different exercises covering every operation needed to complete a modern professional-sounding mix, complete with tips and tricks that come directly from the A-list pro mixers.
The easy-to-follow exercises can be used with any DAW application or hardware console, and on any genre of music.
Although you can easily use the Workbook with any current mixes you may be working on, most of the exercises are built around professionally recorded tracks featuring a wide variety of mix elements (multiple guitars, keys, horns, percussion and lots of vocals) that are available for free download.
