Song Mixing Secrets


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Book #2 in the Music Production Secrets Series by John Rogers. In this book, I show you how to quickly recognize mixing errors and how to fix them. Which will take your projects to the next level! Since 1999, I've mastered over 40,000 songs in every genre imaginable. Working with this many clients gave me the rare opportunity to discover what areas most sound engineers are having problems with. Most of the mixes clients submit are pretty good. The mixer definitely does not need to read a 400 page book on basic mixing techniques, or take a six week mixing course. They're way beyond that. What they do need is a book that points out the most common mixing errors I see daily, so they can check their mixes for them. Problems they don't even realize their mixes suffer from. And then, use the information in this book to correct these problems. Which takes their songs to the next level! That's what "Song Mixing Secrets" all about! This book is for someone who has a good understanding of basic mixing procedures. Sometimes as a solution to a problem, I might suggest compressing the lead vocal a bit. But, I don't get into detailed threshold and ratio settings. I assume you already know how to compress a vocal track. I wrote this entire book in simple plain English (layman's terms). I eliminated all the words you never heard of and hi-tech jargon, so anyone at any level can understand and learn from this book. You've invested hundreds, if not thousands, of hours into your music. If you're serious about it, now's the time to make a very small financial investment in this book so your music will sound the very best it can! I wrote this book so you can quickly learn (in a matter of days) the techniques, tips, and secrets that took me over 19 years to learn!
