Présentation de l'éditeur

(Book). Mixerman is a recording engineer working with a famous producer on the debut album of an unknown band with a giant recording budget. Mixerman is supposed to be writing about recording techniques, but somehow, through that prism, he has hit upon a gripping story. Like all great narratives, Mixerman's diary has many anti-heroes for whom we, the readers, can have nothing but contempt. The band consists of the four most dislikable human beings you can imagine. The singer is vain and pretentious. The guitarist is a serious depressive. The drummer is as "dumb as cotton," and the bassist is merely mean and petty, making him the only one that Mixerman can stand. All four of them hate each other's guts, and they haven't even been on tour yet. Mixerman takes you through the recording process of a bidding war band in over their heads with a famous record producer (also in over his head). Many find Mixerman's diary entries side-splittingly funny. Some find them maddening. And a select few feel they are the most despicable accountings of record-making ever documented.

Good read for everibody who wants to learn a bit about the recording process. Not about the techniques but how to behave well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hilarious and entertaining 12 juin 2009
Par Andreas Gisler - Publié sur
Anybody who has ever spent time in a recording studio should read this. And those that haven't spent time in a recording studio should read it just to get a taste of what they DON'T miss.

As a musician and engineer/producer, some of the accounts in the book had me ROFL while other stories just ring VERY true.

And behind all the sarcasm and outrageousness of the (true) tale of a band without any clue and little proficency but too much time and (loaned) money on their hands, there actually is much to be learned about record-making and producing.

Highly remommended!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a very funny look at the reality of recording commercial rock 9 juillet 2009
Par P. Kavicky - Publié sur
it can be said that what spinal tap was to rock movies, this book is to rock bands recording in the studio. it's a hilarious look at the process of recording a commercial rock band. it tends to beg the question, how much is real and how much is fiction. and like spinal tap, the answer is that even the most far fetched moments in this recording engineers diary have happened in a recording studio at some time. this book is the diary account of the recording engineer dealing with the band, the producer, the studio, the label, and all that goes along with it. this book is an absolute must for anyone who is interested in music and recording. every studio big and small should have a copy near the mixing board.

mixerman, whoever he is, has done an excellent job of capturing the chaos of the process and putting it into book form. it's personal and fun, unpretentious, and does make you feel as if you are in the room with the band.

this book is much discussed amongst recording engineers because this subject matter hits close to home, and according to the book it is based on the recording process with one particular band, a known band who we've all heard on the radio. this is a taste of what it's like to record a band for a recording label, and it's a very entertaining read.

highly recommended and practically necessary if you are involved in music making or recording or anywhere else in that industry. have a good read and prepare for some hearty laughs.

You don't have to be into modern music, recording, major label albums, audio engineering, music production, pro tools, or studio work to enjoy this book.

Watching these guys 'work' and the train wreck that ensues is worth the price of entry.
Guster made a good album (I doubt you've heard of it) but the making of it: all the money, time, politics, bickering, backstabbing, drugs, personal issues, major label dealings...etc... Trumps The Actual Music....

This book is like the Boogie Nights of making a major label record!
My friend read it in 10 hours, non-stop

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hilarious No Holds Barred 18 juillet 2009
Par jonathan - Publié sur
This book has been touted as non-fiction, but I see it as a scathing satire of certain situations in the Recording Industry that may actually be an aggregation of aggravations Mixerman has encoutered in his carreer.

But, who cares?

It's highly entertaining throughout, with a lot of very funny shenanigans throughout -- one of those books that's hard to stop reading once you start.

It's must reading for any musician or audio engineer but you don't have to be either to be ROTF LYAO. IMO it's the perfect summer book!

I have been teaching audio engineering for 9 years now and I can't believe I have not come across this book. I have enjoyed it so much I'm making it apart of my required reading for first term students starting this coming Fall. I can't wait to read his other books.
