"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too detailed with no real appeal to readers, or too specific and within a year or two would be considered terribly outdated.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

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!
This book covers a lot of things, some more in depth than others. I did like the monitoring chapter and the EQ chapter. Everything else was hit or miss for me. Some were more than miss - I felt like they didn't even swing.
A lot of the information in there is superfluous and redundant. I feel like in every single paragraph the author will state something and then retract it. For example, something like "compressors are used to control attacks of instruments. However, sometimes you don't want to control the attack. However, sometimes you do." This is not a direct quote, but I feel like literally every chapter a similar statement is made like this about ten times.
As a mixer, I also feel like a lot of the information is just false - he talks about balancing levels with a compressor and setting the attack to all the way fast, which is definitely NOT what is done most of the time. His methods on setting up a compressor I feel are incorrect, and I feel the graphs and descriptions about so many of these things are just straight up confusing.
It's very obvious to me this is a digital mixer that is used to digital products. I don't think there is much real world experience with analog gear or anything. There are many broad statements that the author assumes, which is dangerous, because many of these things aren't true in all cases.
I have no idea who this author is, what they have done, and if they actually know what they're doing. From the sound of the mixes on the included DVD, I was pretty upset that this book cost as much as it did - I was not impressed with the mixes. I'd much rather read Bobby Owsinski's "Mixing Engineers Handbook," which has real information from a seasoned pro from the industry, as well as interviews with the best of the best mixers from around the globe.
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.
Are there typos, grammar errors, and some bad punctuation, yes. Is this a English book, no. So some bits and pieces here and there are not going to hurt anything. (Though yes they still shouldn't be there, but for the information presented in this book, them are some small potatoes.) Overall, these small things are insignificant and do not take away from any of the knowledge or teachings this book provides. For a book, and from what I've seen, the only book, of this caliber on the subject, I'll take a thousand typos and still be grateful. Besides, if you can't read through some errors, then good luck trying to mix some bad recordings.
Now don't think that this book is insanely complicated or will put you to sleep, because it offers not only advice for putting a good mix together (tools, strategies, etc), but it offers a point of view from an industry professional. Frequently in the text the author will simply give a few lines to conclude and advise what is incorporated into mixing. In my opinion it seems like he can explain a lot about mixing(which he does), but the author pretty much says, "Hey, i know i mentioned all this stuff, but focus on this point and this is how you want to apply this portion of the text into your mixing. OR For future reference, keep such and such ideas into mind. This will better allow you to evaluate your mix and your skill as a mixer in the long run." I completely appreciate how his writing takes into account the fact that mixing is so much more than altering and combining sounds, but it is an art and a learned skill I can not vouch for other books, but for those of you looking to get a deep incite and grasp of doing more with music other than playing it, this book can (and most likely will) expose you to ideas to make you the better mixer, listener, and composer. Enjoy.
