Song Mixing Secrets: How To Fix The Most Common Mistakes (Music Production Secrets - Audio Engineering, Home Recording Studio, Song Mixing, and Music Business Advice Book 2) Kindle Edition
This book is the sequel to my first book, "Audio Mastering Secrets" the best selling audio mastering book for 2020 and 2019!
If you're into audio engineering, this is a great music production book to add to your home recording studio collection. Packed with step-by-step proven methods.
Since 1999, I've worked with over 8,000 clients (that's 6-8 per week) 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 sound engineer 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 that most sound engineers make, so they can check their mixes for them. Problems they don't even realize their mixes suffer from. That's what "Song Mixing Secrets" is all about!
I Show You How To Quickly Fix These Common Problems -
- Mix is too crowded, no space or clarity
- Vocals can't cut through the mix
- Inconsistent levels from section to section
- Mix is too bassy, muddy
- Mix is too bright, tinny, thin
- Stereo field is weak (your song is really mono)
- And More!!
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 20 years to learn!

And that's where this book comes in. I already understood mixing basics, but these concise and well explained tips will be my guide to better and more consistent mixes. Mixing makes so much more sense when it's broken down like this to the fundamental challenges and solutions. This will be our checklist going forward!
I'll also be using this book on my home grown projects. It's given me the confidence to try to completely engineer my own mixes by demystifying the goals and methods. I'm excited by the freedom this will give me on my work and know this hands on approach will help me better develop my students' work.
From years of experience as a Mastering Engineer, John Rogers explains what should be in/out of a mix for a great final master.
The core of this book is the list of 14 mixing mistakes. It's written in John's usual style of giving you simple explanations of the issue and how to fix it. He explains what makes something sound bad, the why and the solution. This is is why I bought this book.
I highly recommend this book to anyone mixing audio tracks. Using the secrets here as a reference while mixing will solve the mysterious problems towards a great mix.
