Zen and the Art of Producing by Mixerman

Following the popular Zen and the Art of Mixing, this new book provides valuable insights for both neophyte and veteran alike. Mixerman reveals all that goes into the most coveted job in record-making – producing.

In his signature style, Mixerman provides us a comprehensive blueprint for all that the job entails – from the organizational discipline needed to run a successful recording session, to the visionary leadership required to inspire great performances. As Mixerman points out, “It doesn’t matter if you’re producing a country album or a hard-rock album: the goal is to communicate with the audience in a manner they understand.”

“This book addresses the actual task of producing brilliantly. I wish every young artist and engineer I’ve worked with had read it!” – Bob Olhsson (Stevie Wonder, Jackson Five, Marvin Gaye)

“Producing a record, and doing it well, is crucially important, insanely difficult, maddeningly subtle and exquisitely complex. And all of that is to be found in this book.” – William Wittman (Cyndi Lauper, Joan Osborne, The Fixx)

“Informative and entertaining, this is a book that any ‘wanna be producer’ (and several established producers) should keep in their racks to constantly use as reference.” – Ron Saint German (Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Living Colour)

“The production equivalent of a Kama Sutra for the double-jointed.” – Aardvark (Johnny Reed, Ren and Stimpy, Byron)

Zen and the Art of Producing is a fun-to-read guide that teaches you everything from team building and the necessary social skills, to how to pick successful projects and deal with the mechanics and the money side in an ever-changing industry.

The book is available to purchase for $24.99 USD.

Hal Leonard publishes The Power in Cubase – Tracking Audio, MIDI, and Virtual Instruments

Hal Leonard Book The Power in Cubase

Hal Leonard Books has published The Power in Cubase by Matthew Loel T. Hepworth.

This comprehensive, thoughtful, and engaging guide is written to help the new user master the ins and outs of Cubase.

Consider this: Cubase is a program that will turn your computer into a complete recording studio. That is, Cubase can create virtually every button, knob, switch, and fader found in a “real” studio, including a few components that don’t exist in the hardware realm. Imagine the challenge of sitting at a large mixing desk and being expected to use all that technology to produce professional recordings. Well, by installing Cubase on your computer, that’s exactly what you’ve expected of yourself. Knowing how daunting that task sounds, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, if not disillusioned.

The Power in Cubase: Tracking Audio, MIDI, and Virtual Instruments will help you get started so that you can use Cubase to your full benefit. It is specifically written to allow a new user to quickly get started with Cubase while avoiding a myriad of pitfalls. First, you’ll learn the process of installation and proper studio configuration. Next, you’ll learn the foundations of rudimentary Cubase operations. You’ll also learn how to avoid common mistakes that can ruin a recording. Finally, you’ll learn how to properly record MIDI, instrument, and audio tracks. Whether they’re your own tracks or those of a client, you’ll achieve recordings in your own home or project studio that were recently considered unobtainable without a big studio. And you’ll discover Cubase is easier to learn than you may have expected.

The book is available for $16.99 USD.

Hal Leonard publishes The Worship Band Book – Training and Empowering Your Worship Band

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jun 26, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Hal Leonard Books has published Worship Musician! Presents The Worship Band Book by Tom Lane, a mini boot camp for bands, artists, worship teams, and worship ministries.

Worship Musician! presents The Worship Band Book

Whether you’re in a band yourself or part of a ministry involved with teams, this book can help you on your journey. For 30 years, musician, songwriter, and worshipper Tom Lane has worked in the Christian worship music industry and alongside churches, ministries, and movements around the world associated with worship.

In this collection of articles, Lane encourages honesty and clear communication from all sides while aiming for the right thing – to be a band that worships, first and foremost. Spiritual, relational, professional, and practical issues relevant for individuals and groups in worship ministry of any kind are addressed head on.

Historically, bands have helped lead revolutions, crusades, campaigns, churches, rallies, and entire nations. The role bands play in worship, though important, is not the pinnacle of the calling or mandate according to Jesus. While it’s okay to have a good rock band and want to go places, many creatively gifted Christians miss the mark entirely and are derailed by their own quests for something other than God. Likewise, worship teams sometimes miss the mark by placing too much emphasis onperformance and not enough on relationships. This book will help lay the foundation for a healthier pursuit of creative dreams and a closer walk with God.

The Worship Band Book is available to purchase for $16.99 USD.
