The Recording Engineers Handbook – Bobby Orwinski
The Mixing Engineers Handbook – Bobby Orwinski
The Mastering Engineers Handbook – Bobby Orwinski
My first book I started to read and finished to read 😉 Bobby Orwinski have a very logical way to mix and is very very good in bringing this knowledge to people – I like also the interviews at the end of the book with different engineers from different genres.
He have three series for everyone and you will really learn the basic and advanced topics for audio production and how it is all connected from the beginning to the end – it gave me a better insight view in every production to make the next steps easier for the next engineer.
Mixing with your Mind – Michael Paul Stavrou
AFTER THAT – My favorite Book that my bro Crid Aupy recommended me is this and I love the different view and the personalized style from Paul, his great humor, his 100 % professionalism and the big inspiration this book gave me, to see the job with another view.
No “fairy dust” magic, straight advises, good explanations and analogies, encourage to experiment and to use your ears, check it out.
Handbook Acoustic’s – Ken C. Pohlmann & Durango, Colorado
Okay, we are able to make our hands dirty now but what about troubleshooting ? What about the sound ? How to become a sound master ? No way around Physics my friend, number one book, recommended by Steve Albini I took it – checked it – and it’s awesome.
Another Fantastic book I read (only in german available) is this one – honestly I saved my Ass when I met the Moroccan Orchestra and they agreed to record I read the last pages and checked the images and orientated only on this and my ears, so it gave me the confidence to make my first, real good record – Thanks Simon for borrowing this.
Sylvia Massy – Recording Unhinged
Recording Audio is a passion for me – after learning all technical standards and how to use all tools in a great manner it’s time to experiment and forget about it – experiment and play and try new way’s to define a new sound !
That’s what the book is about, to enjoy and love what you are doing – I highly recommend this for engineers that are stuck in the endless loop of watching technical YouTube videos and take them holy and as the only way !
George Martin – All you need is ears
I love to read books from Producers to get the mindset and the idea – so why not starting by the man who discovered the Beatles ?Awesome books, check out George Martins story behind the Beatles and get inspired !
Mixing with Impact by Wessel Oltheten
Wonderful book, I highly recommend that one after you are sure with the basics, it explains the basics again but with excellent examples, explained in a technical and natural way. There are golden tipps and tricks inside to bring your mixes way faster to the result you imagine – HOT HOT HOT !
