The Secrets of Mixing Revealed
If you possess a skill that can help others, there is no reason to keep it a secret.
The secret will do more good out in the world, like a benevolent wraith passing knowledge from one person to another.
Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland once wrote,
“One of the secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.”
Audio Issues was founded on the principle of sharing knowledge. Every time I learned something new, I wrote it down, I passed it on. No matter how far down the rabbit-hole I went, I sent telegrams of audio tips to whoever wished to learn the secrets.
Then, when the knowledge was overflowing, like a pot of boiling water spilling over the stove, I packaged it into books.
Books have power on their own that stand apart from the author in both time and space. My presence ceases to be required in order for you to gain my knowledge.
The English essayist William Hazlitt correctly deduced,
“Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own.”
I couldn’t agree more. Books contain immeasurable secrets available to anyone wishing to learn.
Like Graham, who bought my best-selling book about mixing, where I keep no secret to myself:
“Just a week since owning this book and everything in it is a revelation of things kept as a deep dark secret unless you pay a lot of money for them. If you have the ears, application and this book you can do great things with your music. I only use the cheapest studio one artist software and already being enlightened by the info, and projects I could only imagine in this quality before, are emerging sounding like I have always wanted”
If you don’t want to spend fifteen years in the rabbit-hole of learning, but would like the secrets of mixing nonetheless, Step By Step Mixing is what you should get.
