Each one of us surf net to find dope on music production. Tips and tricks has been an age old way of digging out info, and most of those search results turn out to be some novice mind's outlook.

How about sharing the valuable info that we all dig out from net and concise all into this one place.

But only condition that I lay is that all those info must come from a Pro and would be great if source of that material can be shared as well.

Videos and books that are supposed to be either bought or downloaded will not be appreciated. Although links that directly takes you to the info source, like youtube would do.

I'm starting out with an interview of 'Erez Eisen' of 'Infected Mushroom'.
Many of you must have already read it, but truly guys I found it pretty informative.

Another shot for those who like psytrance, its not my sport although, not much informative either, but someone who is starting up must be familiar with these papers from Berkeley University.

Pretty old interview of Astrix, but still lays a lot more gravity than any novice suggestion - http://www.harderfaster.net/text/features/11536

I think you're neglecting the most obvious and comprehensive source of Interviews with Professional Musicians, Engineers, and Producers on the SOS Forums, and that's those that appeared in SOS magazine :headbang:

Just in case anyone forgets, these forums are hosted by SOS Publications, and whether you're a regular reader or not, the archives are open to you 8-)

Only the contents of the five most recent issues are locked for subscribers only, which has always seemed very generous to me!

Here's our Inside Track | Secrets Of The Mix Engineers section:

www.soundonsound.com/articles/InsideTrackMixSecrets.php

...and here's our Classic Tracks section:

www.soundonsound.com/articles/ClassicTracks.php

Both contain links to dozens of in-depth interviews!

Thanx a lot, Martin, for the contribution. I truly neglected some good info that was right behind me.

Could anyone help me with a good informative interview of Brian Eno, where he doesnt talk about music as aesthetics only and also lead us to some valuable tip or trick in production. He normally never goes that techy in interviews.

I always like the Secrets of Mixing Engineers, but sometimes it's just too bad that the really important information is missing. Usually it's just like what plugins they've used, but none of the settings on some really wierd plugs. But still like those articles a LOT.

Ah, the enigma that is Brian Eno. Well, here's an SOS interview with him that contains both practical info and aesthetics:

www.soundonsound.com/SOS/oct05/articles/brianeno.htm

Actually, this discussion has now departed significantly from 'Keyboards | Synthesizers | Sound Design', so I'll move it to our more general Music Recording Technology forum where it will attract more posts.

Thanx a lot, Martin. I dont understand this guy's(Brian Eno) maverick personality that gets revealed in his work. That's so contradictory to his real self. I mean, its the greatest honor to anyone who has a stable status of being recognized as a father of a genre, but this guy is either too modest in his interviews or he is truly a humble soul, who truly knows more than what he looks like. I spend days to decipher his extrahuman skills implemented in his mixing and synthesis skills. He is a true ambient musician.

Is it sounding too cheesy? Did I praise him obnoxiously?
No guys, this man deserves it. I think he deserves more. Alas, I fail to find words to define his capabilities in music creation. Listen to any of his work, you'll know.
:ooo:

Seems a shame to ignore books when you're asking about Brian Eno. You really should read A Year With Swollen Appendices if you haven't already.

Also worth looking for tips from Daniel Lanois, who has collaborated with Eno on many occasions, both on Eno's own material (e.g. Apollo) and on production of other bands.

I have read it already.
Its not about ignoring books, 'Matt Houghton'. I almost have an emotional factor with books. Its something like more than the love that we can carry for humans. I read a lot and had inculcated this habit like an art of living, rather than just an indulgence.
But this particular thread, that has an specific purpose of limiting its scope to the easy availability of information, does not decide to make me be ashamed of anything. If I simply set some rules to this thread, that does not mean that I do not bend those rules. I mean if there is a good book that you read then let us know what dope you drew and can provide to this thread, but in your words(not the title of the book). I do not propagate how much I know, but as you insist, I must tell you that I also have read - "Eric Tamm's Brian Eno: His music & the vertical color of sound" and "Geeta Dayal's Another green world".

But, anyways, thanx for your suggestion.

Duvdev's nice sense of humor and the geeky Erez, very nice interview.
I might buy that kind of reverb. But its freakin costly. Very costly.

Not sure if this is the sort of stuff you're after but I find it pretty watchable, if only for the infective enthusiasm & the absence of brand loyalty
