I just finished reading In The Studio With Michael Jackson by Bruce Swedien. What a great book! If you’re into recording and/or love the music of Michael Jackson you’ll really get into this book. Bruce is a BRILLIANT recordist and mixer. He has been at the forefront of music recording for decades. In this book you really get a sense for Bruce’s love for music and his love of Michael Jackson. What I enjoyed most was how much insight Bruce gives into technical recording techniques. Not so detailed that it’s overwhelming, but he recalls techniques and tricks he and Quincy Jones used while recording Michael’s great music.
I highly recommend you buy this book. (or download it on you Kindle!!)
For even more stories, tips and tricks from Bruce Swedien, check out Bruce’s many posts on Gearslutz.com. Bruce moderated a forum a few years back. You can still read it here.

About a week before Saddleback’s Worship Conference I stumbled upon a book called “Mastering Audio: The Art and the Science” by Bob Katz. Just recently I’ve been interested in how mastering works. I want to understand mastering so I can mix my records in a way that gets the most out of the mastering process.
