Mixing The Hits of Country
Hal Leonard and MusicPro Guides have announced the first volume in a new series focusing on mixing techniques.
With Mixing The Hits of Country, the company swears you will learn how to make professional-sounding mixes of today's chart-topping Nashville hits in your own studio.
This book is designed to allow you to learn professional techniques by working with multitrack sessions in your studio with your own digital-audio application.
Mixing the Hits of Country includes two DVDs with complete WAV files for every instrument and vocal track to 10 contemporary country hits, including songs by Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Brooks & Dunn, Faith Hill, and more. The choice of songs represents a swath of modern country music, and each song offers its own unique facet of the mix, according to the publisher.
The WAV files are designed to emulate the original artist recordings, and the DVDs are compatible with both PC and Mac platforms and ready to be imported into the digital recording software of your choice. Using these tracks, Dave Martin guides you step-by-step through mixing exercises that are illustrated with screenshots and charts.
The full list of audio tracks included are: "Anyway" (Martina McBride), "Before He Cheats" (Carrie Underwood), "Bless The Broken Road" (Rascal Flatts), "It Just Comes Natural" (George Strait), "My Give a Damn's Busted" (Jo Dee Messina), "Play Something Country" (Brooks & Dunn), "Redneck Woman" (Gretchen Wilson), "Stealing Kisses" (Faith Hill), "Summertime" (Kenny Chesney), and "Would You Go With Me" (Josh Turner).
