Here, in a replica of a recently exhumed tome (discovered in reverb chamber #4 beneath the Capitol Studios lot), we present to you the companion book to Mixerman's popular Zen and the Art of Mixing. Providing 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. This enhanced multimedia edition brings producers deeper into the concepts covered in the text. In over an hour's worth of supplemental video clips, Mixerman gives added insight into the various aspects of producing, from choosing songs and deciding on arrangements to managing production budgets. 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 communicate with the audience in a manner they understand.
