The Daily Adventures of Mixerman - Anybody who has ever spent time in a recording studio should read this. And those that haven’t spent time in a recording studio should read it just to get a taste of what they DON’T miss. As a musician and engineer/producer, some of the accounts in the book had me ROFL while other stories just ring VERY true.
The Daily Adventures of Mixerman - You don’t have to be into modern music, recording, major label albums, audio engineering, music production, pro tools, or studio work to enjoy this book. Watching these guys ‘work’ and the train wreck that ensues is worth the price of entry. Guster made a good album (I doubt you’ve heard of it) but the making of it: all the money, time, politics, bickering, backstabbing, drugs, personal issues, major label dealings…etc… Trumps The Actual Music…. This book is like the Boogie Nights of making a major label record!
Zen and the Art of Mixing - "Finally, a book that teaches the Art of great mixing, not the pseudoscience. At long f*#@ing last."
Zen and the Art of Mixing - "Dough head. You gave away the farm."
Zen and the Art of Producing - "Mixerman is a fearless, erudite and witty writer and thinker. Buy this book. Buy all of Eric Sarafin's books. NOW."
Zen and the Art of Producing - "Informative and entertaining, this is a book that any 'wannabe producers' (and several established producers) should keep in their racks to constantly use as a reference."
Zen and the Art of Recording - "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."
