"This book is a wonderful, no nonsense guide to audio mixing for beginners and advanced mixing engineers and producers. The accompanying DVD holds hundreds of audio examples that add an invaluable depth to the reading. Let's face it, you can't just write about audio mixing, you must provide examples and this book delivers tons of them.This type of book has long been missing from the arsenal of books about audio mixing and production. Most books are either too detailed with no real appeal to readers, or too specific and within a year or two would be considered terribly outdated. However, Audio mixing covers some universal concepts in a way that would make it relevant through the years.I highly recommend this book to any aspiring or working mixing engineer/producer. I believe the straightforward writing style (while not always with the best grammar), the range of topics covered and the all revealing audio examples make this book a great choice."--Yuvalgerstein.com

I have never been good at mixing. Reading books didn't seem to help much. While it is easy to understand written instructions on how to mic a guitar cabinet or build a bass trap, it is a different matter to read and understand advice on compression, EQ, or reverb treatments.
This book plugs the gap in my knowledge nicely. A major plus point is the included DVD with audio files which demonstrate to your ears what a compressor sounds like. You can hear individual tracks before and after treatment with processors and effects.
It is written in the here and now, referencing modern mix engineers such as Andy Wallace and Nigel Goodrich and uses modern recordings like as Nirvana's Nevermind and Red Hot Chili Peppers Blood Sugar Sex Magic. It also references electronic music and Hip Hop.
It's a huge book, a bit text-book like, but certainly readable. The reason I couldn't give it 5 stars is because every fifth page seems to contain a glaring grammatical error. I have never seen so many obvious mistakes in a published book before. I can only surmise that the book wasn't proof-read perhaps due to its technical nature or in haste to get it to press.
Now, as I look at my bookshelf full of "Mixing & Mastering & Studio Tips & Tricks" books, I can honestly say that this is the best book I have bought over the years.....period. Read what everyone else has wrote here in their reviews, and you got the gist of it, this book is the bomb!
Even if you "know it all", I recommend this book for 3 chapters, Compression, Reverb, and Gates-Expanders. Written so that ANYONE can understand it, but deep enough to make us old timers go "WHOA..." And the DVD, full of example audio clips and 4 full mixes that are tore apart at the end of the book, just drive the information home.
All of the reviews are correct(including the "eglash" in places), if you are serious about your Sound and Audio in general, this is the book to own. If you REALLY want to understand what the Ratio control does, on anything that uses one, this is the book to own. If you really want to improve your Engineering & Mixing Skills, this is the book to own. If you are using a computer to do audio, this is the book to own. If you use Cubase, Music Studio, Pro Tools, Audacity, or the Kristal Audio Engine, this is the book to own. It is worth every penny!
Can you tell I like the book?! I am on my 2nd read thru!
There are a few typos, and grammatical errors abound. However, once you accustom yourself to his dialect it's like anything. If you've ever had a college professor with an accent or strong dialect then you'll know, you can either hang with it or miss out on a lot of valuable information.
That's what this book is chock full of. In my opinion it's worth it's weight in gold. Izhaki gives detailed explanation of the uses and science behind the most commonly used, and often misunderstood mixing tools. Time based effects (delay, reverb), dynamics based processors (gates, limiters, expanders, and a powerfully insightful chapter on compressors), and frequency filters (EQ) are all covered in great depth, including tips and tricks for how to get the most out of them by using them in combination.
Examples from many stellar recordings from the late '90s are given, Nirvanah, Radiohead, and Massive Attack tracks are just some to be examined. In case you aren't familiar with the tracks referenced in the text he also provides a CD of tracks he's mixed that illustrate the same principles.
You can't go wrong with this publication.
Just wish he'd pay me to proof read the next edition.
Even better than what I expected. This book is very complete and really makes mixes better.
This book talks really seriously and precisely about mixing. I've catched advice that I now use all the time. A few examples :
Compressing : I've been using compressors for 5 years and I've read a lot about compressors and to be honest, this is the first time I understand how a compressor works ... The "usual" explanation is wrong.
Now when I open a compressor window, I know why and how I'll use it
Reverbs : I didn't know that gating the reverb was the way to have that "big" sound without the "amateur" flush we always hear on home-studio mixes; this is the way to have very audible but short reverbs without distorsion.
Equalization : I have never used a high-pass filter that way ... now I really "aggressively" clear the bottom end on most guitars, vocals ans so on ... and my bass and kick just stick out the mix.
I am still working with this book. It is a book I'll never get rid of.
a master piece.
