Hello,

I'm very pleased to release, with permission from the author, a PDF document that includes all posts published so far in Kim Lajoie's "Lifesigns from the studio" Internet blog (http://blog.kimlajoie.com).

Kim is a respectable member of this forum, known with username "Kim (esoundz)".

I consider his blog an amazing resource with plenty of technical (and not only) informations of absolute relevance about the art of music production and songwriting. I thought it would have been very useful having all these awesome informations available offline in the form of a searchable and indexed PDF document.

The document (400 pages currently!!!) is downloadable here (new links, 2021 March):

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1u52Mkg ... sp=sharing

Kudos and thanks again to Kim for being so kind to allow free distribution of the document.
Please note that this is a completely unofficial (private) initiative.

I'll try to keep the document updated as Kim posts new articles in the blog.

EDIT - last content update Jan, 17, 2016.

Enjoy,
Mario

Perhaps make the text alignment "justified"?
To me at least, such is easier to read.
