LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Friday, January 06, 2012

Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational print music publishing since 1922, launches its new Boot Camp pro audio series with two new titles: Audio Recording Boot Camp and Audio Mixing Boot Camp, the instructional resource Book and DVD guides to professional-level recording and mixing, by highly acclaimed producer, engineer, and best-selling author, Bobby Owsinski.

Audio Recording Boot Camp is carefully designed with hands-on recording exercises that reveal how to listen and work like a pro, including tried-and-true tips, tricks, and secrets to all the different facets of recording. Topics include miking a drum kit, recording vocals, and instruction on where, when, why, and how to mic virtually any instrument. Learn how the pros build a rough mix, set up a headphone mix, and how to use compression and equalization to make recordings sound their very best.

Audio Mixing Boot Camp exposes the essentials of audio mixing using industry proven techniques. Built around a series of hands-on mixing exercises that engage engineers to proper listening and workflow, the resource guide provides invaluable tips and helpful tricks, taking the guess work out of mixing professional sounding projects. Topics include: instrument and vocal balance, panning, compression, EQ, reverb, delay, critical balance between bass and drums, how to produce the most creative mixes, and much more.

The companion DVD in each edition features videos that correspond with each book and provide a multimedia learning experience. The Audio Mixing Boot Camp DVD also includes files usable by all of today’s most popular DAWs that feature templates and useful examples specifically geared to develop your mixing chops. Each Boot Camp pro-audio instructional resource is designed to help music producers and engineers at any level to become proficient in the craft with a no-nonsense and hands-on approach.

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment, the textbooks are printed on 100% recycled paper.

Audio Recording Boot Camp and Audio Mixing Boot Camp Book & DVD sets are now available for $29.99 each and can be found at music retail stores and at alfred.com/proaudio.
