Ask Joe #99 – Your Fake “Paper” Business

Plus I answer some great questions about things like learning from audio theory from books, getting your mixes to translate on an iPod, how to mix string sections, using external clocks for your digital gear, what to buy next for your studio (!), and blurring the lines between recording and mixing.

  • picking studio monitors (what to look for and what not to worry about)
  • writing/recording music for video
  • dealing with windows in a home studio
