Alfred Music Publishing Uncovers the Mystery of Audio Mixing with New Beginner’s Guide

Los Angeles, CA—August 2010 - Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922, removes the barriers for aspiring audio engineers everywhere with a brand-new beginner’s guide to the art of professional audio mixing: Alfred’s Teach Yourself Mixing, by David Terry.

Alfred’s Teach Yourself Mixing teaches the fundamental principles of audio mixing with a step-by-step approach that will give you the skills you need to successfully mix your music.

Whereas most Pro-Audio books begin with the assumption that the reader is already savvy with the various terms and tools used in mixing, Alfred’s Teach Yourself Mixing starts at the beginning and is accessible even to those who are new to mixing. This book provides detailed instruction on key areas of mixing including compressors, limiters, pan, gain, signal paths, bussing, effects sends & returns, automation, wave editing, final mix-downs, and more.

Upon completion, you’ll understand the basic concepts of both digital and analog mixing and be able to produce professional-sounding recordings with skill and confidence.
