I recently bought a DVD set from audioMIDI called the Basics of Modern Recording and Mixing but found it less than I was hoping.
It would be cool if there was a training DVD that did this:
Showed a producer/engineer mixing a pop song or orchestral song etc. They would solo out each of the instruments, explain how they were recorded, show how various EQ's affect the sound and how this effects how they sit in the mix. They would go through each instrumnet, vocals, etc and and demonstrate the best way to get the best mix. If there is such an animal please let me know where to buy it.
I'm working on a pop song right now and have a ton of tracks going and want to make sure i'm doing all I can to get the best sound possible from my humble talents and studio.
All the very best,
