[Epub] ↠ How To Be A Great Music Producer - Professional Music Production Results, Fast! Author Mark Flannery – Tactical-player.co.uk
Not a bad book You ll learn something by reading it it s relatively inexpensive, so there s not a lot to lose. How relevant to hear from a producer about how to make the most of your music and make a great emotional connection with the listener It is what inspires musicians, songwriters and singers in the first place I also particularly appreciated the realism about making small incremental changes NOW to raise the production level you can tell this comes from years of actual experience from the writer There are 10000 guides out there about music software packages, and new shiny microphones This book helps producers create records with spirit, through fail safe self analysis and consistent musical analysis Also, I read it in one evening bonus Really useful advice on thinking of the overall structure and vision of your recording I know it sounds like an easy point to have missed, but so many do This book is not about technical advice, but connecting with an audience and why you make records in the first place.I have it three stars as the book is rather short, and the advice so good I wanted to hear of what the writer wanted to say.I also found a couple of points contradictory For instance, the author talked of listeners not liking, loud scratch guitars Then later went on to talk of the brilliance of Nirvana loud guitars anyone I think the point could of been better made about styles of music and it depends on whether loud, grunge elements fit with your sound and band. Perhaps some people need to be told that music production amounts to having a vision before you get started and to not mix in a bubble I ve just saved you three quid. This short book was really useful in terms of provoking thought and creativity in music production Basic core principles that help you to really become focused in what you want to achieve I have picked up some inspiring tips I doubt this can help anyone who has picked this up book in the hope that contains all of the secret answers If you have a good ear, passion and some talent this will help you get focused It s not a technical book full of engineering tips It s great for getting you thinking about projects I came back to music after a 10 year break and this kind of book was perfect for me Good luck The best thing about this book is the no BS approach It s straight to the point and cuts out all the waffle Mark shares openly his own experiences to enable the reader to short cut their own path to success I have benefited immensely from his insights so much so that I have got my first record cut my a well known artist.
