Recensione

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too detailed with no real appeal to readers, or too specific and within a year or two would be considered terribly outdated.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

5.0 su 5 stelle This is the book to own..... 16 ottobre 2008
Di Smurf - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
As a home studio owner and pro musician of 40 years I am always on the lookout for that "next bit of info" that will push me to yet again improve...and this book was it. I have looked at this book for month's and thought..."Man, is it REALLY worth the $$?"

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!

3.0 su 5 stelle Not what I expected - Quantity over Quality. 31 dicembre 2011
Di Kendal A. Osborne - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Alright, I'll grant the author the fact that there is a TON of information in here. If you've never mixed before then this book has a ton of information for the newbie. If you HAVE mixed before, and you're wanting to learn more, the only proof you need is the mixes on the demo DVD - they're not that great. It's like three mediocre pop dance songs and a junky rock tune. I think it's a classic case of quantity over quality.

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Never learned so much about mixing 9 novembre 2009
Di Sadek S - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
very simple : unless you are very happy with your mixes, this book is a must have.
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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Best Book on Subject 10 novembre 2009
Di Brad Payne - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book is amazing to say the least, I couldn`t and still can`t put it down. Anyone who wants to up their knowledge of mixing (the process, what it inquires, the lingo, the equipment, the software, plus some how to tips, and more) has to own this book. I've been recording music for going on 10 years now, and though I've had my successes, I've had much more failures, and A LOT of it is due to mixing and/or editing (i.e. the songs are good, and the recordings are good, but the songs failed when finished). I've got a library full of books that just breeze by most topics that are important, and after reading this book (also while taking an audio production class- in which this book, though not, should be part of the curricular reading), with Izhaki's straight forward, for the layman, style writing, I found that there is so much more ground that I should have been covering with my music that I simply was not attuned to. With simple understanding, and great diagrams, pictures, and charts, along with a DVD of samples, the only thing missing with this book is the hands on experience (though to assume you're reading this book, you have a means and a way of accomplishing that).
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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent and Informative 1 ottobre 2009
Di Alexander S. Martin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Ok. I feel obligated to give a review for this fine piece of text because it has opened my mind to a whole concept of mixing that I had no idea existed. Let me say that I thought I knew a thing or two about mixing prior to opening this book. I mean how hard can treble and bass knobs be? Simply I thought mixing was a fairly simple concept to grasp and execute. A few weeks ago I began to come to terms that perhaps there can be a lot done to my music beyond the composing. So i did my research on this site and others and I found this book to be the best solution, and at this moment I am 100pgs through it (and skipped around some) I am thoroughly satisfied.

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.
