Art of Producing Book

"David Gibson's Groundbreaking work is a real eye-opener for all of us, music professionals and casual listeners alike. He has single-handedly rethought the whole metaphor for the visual representation of recorded music and conjured up a brand new way to interact with it. It's high time we took a new look at the antique user interface employed by typical MIDI and sample editing tools - and this book and video series is a great place to start."
- Thomas "Dolby" Roberson

Hip Hop Mix

 

The videos use the 3D visual framework to explain and show how to create every style of mix in the world for any style of music.






VIDEO #1, PART 1 - VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OF IMAGING

This video is designed as an Introduction to the visual framework for representing sounds in mixes. It explains and shows:

  • Specific correlations between audio parameters and visual parameters: Volume, Panning, Equalization, Compressor/Limiters, Noise Gates, Delays, Flanging, Choruses, Phasing, and Reverb.
  • "The Limits of Imaging," where a mix occurs in the space between the speakers.
  • The basic concept of making a mix that is appropriate for the music and song.

VIDEO #1, PART 2 - VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OF STUDIO EQUIPMENT

The second video in the series is a survey of all the functions and parameters within each piece of equipment in the studio. Using the visuals the video covers:

  • The details of each and every piece of equipment in the studio.
  • How each piece of equipment is used in different styles of music and songs.


VIDEO #2 - STRUCTURES OF MIXES

The third video uses the framework explained in the first two videos to explain how to use studio equipment to create any style of mix. The video shows:

  • The difference between invisible mixes and mixes that add a musical component.
  • The common musical dynamics that can be created with equipment in the studio.
  • How combinations of various equipment can be used to create different styles of mixes.
  • How to create a context (style of mix) and then completely blow people's minds by abruptly changing it to another style.
