Finally, I am delighted to announce the release of my 3rd eBook; although number 4 actually beat this one! Mixing Techniques has taken me quite a while and is a thorough investigation of the workflows and techniques of the mixing process with a focus upon AVID’s Protools. Head on over to the ToKshop.
Recently released iBook 4 Harmony for Engineers has a new Widget design. Functionality is the same. iBook 2 Editing Techniques has some small corrections and revisions specific to ProTools 2018.x
Current purchasers have already received their versions as is the life-long support of revisions and updates.
Harmony for Engineers. A simplified approach to the concepts and structures governing Diatonic Harmony. Vsn 1.1 now published with an extra chapter on Minor Scales structures and Harmony.
Special introductory price. Any purchaser receives a life-long free update to future versions and revisions. Head on over to the ToKshop
Yes, eBook #3 (Mixing Techniques) is still ongoing… as is the discipline of Mixing. But in the meantime :)
If you're into audio engineering or are just fresh to this field of art and technical expression it's likely you've been given advice from those who may not actually have been doing this for long; I'll offer you the benefit of my forty years in studios through my eBook series. There are currently two releases published in ePub format for use on a myriad of devices: 1 investigates Recording Techniques whilst 2 delves into the workflows I've developed for Editing, predominantly in ProTools. Head over to the ToKshop to grab yourself a copy or bundle.
PS. the 3rd eBook is currently underway - Stay Tuned: Mixing Techniques
It's been an extremely productive Summer with lot's of recording, performances, back to lectures and teaching and also managing to write the 2nd iBook (ePub format). This second publication focuses upon the Editing Techniques within the DAW environment and features a whole range of workflows for an entire production process. The intention is to provide engineers, especially junior engineers with a framework upon which to develop or adapt their own workflows in the many aspects of editing prior to the blurry end leading into the mix stage.
It became apparent after releasing the 1st iBook (Recording Techniques) that whilst there are quite a few publications of that type the Editing aspects for the engineer have not been the focus for many teaching or learning resources. It is my sincere hope that this 2nd ePub document will become a valuable addition to reading the user manual for ProTools especially, although many of the workflows can be easily adapted across alternative DAW packages. Head over to the ToKshop to grab yourself a copy.
Available now in the ToKshop is the first iBook of an intended series on audio engineering. iBook 1 Recording Techniques is a culmination of approaches and an underlying philosophy to recording in the modern era gleaned from over 40 years of recording. I sincerely hope all aspiring engineers find this a valuable resource.
