$16.99 USD


The Low End - the holy grail of all electronic music and without doubt one of the most technically demanding areas for a producer to conquer. Now for the first time ever there exists an entire book dedicated to unravelling the mysteries and complexities of the most powerful element of any mix.

'Low End - The Definitive Guide For the Producer' is the latest in the critically acclaimed series of ebooks for hip hop and EDM producers from Sound on Sound's Eddie Bazil comprehensively covering an utterly mind-boggling range of essential production skills focused on taming and creatively manipulating the low end of your mixes, teaching you how to:

  • Use filters to remove 'mud' and other frequency related issues
  • Deal with phase and phase cancellation problems (and even turn them to your advantage)
  • Add extra warmth to the low end of a mix
  • Use compressors for dynamic control, transient shaping and many other creative techniques
  • Sculpt and 'design' your tracks using layering & filters
  • Use automation and modulation to inject more life into your mixes
  • How to programme parts with real feel

And much, much more, covering all the techniques you'll need to master when creating any genre of electronic music including side chaining, parallel processing, multiband compression, expansion, saturation, harmonic filtering, modulation, and even an entire chapter dedicated to making the most out of the classic 808 and 909 sounds. View the full table of contents here, along with an entire chapter from the book.

Packed with plenty of practical, 'real world' examples, Eddie uses clear and jargon-free step-by-step analysis to explain exactly how the parameter changes are altering the audio, embellishing each step with detailed screenshots from many popular VST plugins that show every setting, parameter and slider position.

"(Eddie's) writing is clear and easy to follow throughout, providing gentle and supportive guidance for beginners, as well as plenty of golden nuggets of inspiration and detailed knowledge to satisfy more experienced producers and sound designers."
Hugh Robjohns, Technical Editor, Sound On Sound
