Books I Bought
While trying to get my retarded arm working again, I decided to blow some money on books. Ordered them last week and received them late last week. Here they is: Set Your Voice Free by Roger Love
The Mixing Engineer's Handbook by Bobby Owsinski
Behind the Glass: Top Record Producers Tell How They Craft the Hits by Howard Massey
Basic Mixing Techniques by Paul White
So far I've mostly read the Mixing Engineer's Handbook and Behind the Glass and they're both very interesting. Behind the Glass is all interviews and the Handbook is about 70% interviews. It can definitely get annoying to read so many engineers and producers contradict each other. One interview will be all "You gotta use tons of compression, man. If you don't, your records are shit and I stake my entire illustrious career and in fact my very life on it!" and the next one will denounce compression as the downfall of Western civilization. Which I might be OK with. It's all horribly subjective is what I'm saying.
Maybe I'll write reviews of them later. I meant to review Cubase SX Power! but I plum forgot about it.
