As some of you know, aside from mixing some awesome records I’ve just released a book that sets out to be THE complete methodology for the entire mixing process from preparation to delivery.
In addition to the technical and artistical side of things, the book also deals with the people aspects of the job, from industry networking to dealing with client feedback.

If you found my recent blog posts helpful, I’m very confident you will love it.

The complete mix methodology from DAW preparation to delivery!
