I have had this eBook lying around on my computer for about a year now and I thought, you know what? im just going to put it up on the web because it may be beneficial to people. Here is the short description I wrote of the book:
‘Producing and Mixing Dance Music in the Box’ is a 44 page eBook that was created with the amateur producer in mind. Rather than supply a guide filled with extremely technical and confusing information, the goal of this book is to provide some simplistic yet fundamental knowledge to the amateur/ intermediate producer. This book certainly is not a complete ‘how to’ produce music, nor is a mixing engineers guide, it is simply a source of helpful information, guidelines, tips and some practical techniques you can implement when producing and mixing your own music on your computer. The book is split into two sections, the first section focuses on some mixing fundamentals, such as reverb, compression, EQ, Stereo & Mono. Rather than focusing on what the different parameters on your plugins are used for, this guide offers up practical uses of those plugins, which will not only help you create music faster and more efficiently but it will also help you refine your sound. The Second section of the book goes into some Dance music essentials, such as Drums, Synths and Bass. Each section has a ‘Tips, Tricks and Techniques’ bullet point page, filled with short tips and techniques you can use when creating music. Although this was written with an amateur dance music producer in mind, the concepts of the guide can be taken on board by any ‘in the box’ producer no matter what genre you create. There may even be some helpful small tips for more advanced producers. Please note this guide includes some examples of different plugins and techniques, however; there are thousands of plugins and techniques out there that can be utilised but I hope this guide does help some of you.

so understand this book was never completed to be seen as a be all and end all of music production. In reality, although it does have an abundance of useful information you can utilise, it probably only covers a tiny percentage of information in the vast world of music making, however; it will no doubt be extremely useful for the beginner to intermediate producers out there!! As for some reference material, simply flick back to some of the earlier blog posts I put up with regards to music production.
