I bought this very short and inexpensive book (Kindle version):
Music Habits: 101 Production Tips for Computer Musicians by Jason Timothy.

Very quick tips organized by topics like Eq, compression etc.

Such as "cut, don't boost" and where the mud it and high pass filters.
Mixcraft 8 Pro (32bit) runs fine on a Toshiba Satellite C55-B laptop with a wimpy Celeron N2830 (dual core). Now using 64bit on a "less wimpy" Dell 660S/Dual Core Pentium/8GB RAM.

New resource, looks like we've got some well produced tutorial videos on EQ, Compression and digital audio terms and such, as well as an interactive feature for exploring and ear training practice.
