Overview

(Technical Reference). In his first book, The Daily Adventures of Mixerman , the author detailed the frustrating and often hilarious goings on during the process of recording a major-label band. Musicians, engineers, and producers laughed and cried at the crazy goings-on they'd never imagined or recognized all too well. Now Mixerman turns his razor-sharp gaze to the art of mixing and gives followers and the uninitiated reason to hope if not for logic and civility in the recording studio then at least for a good sounding record. With a firm commitment to art over technology and to maintaining a grasp of each, Mixerman outlines his own approach to recording success, based on his years mixing records in all genres of music for all kinds of artists, often under trying circumstances. As he states in his introduction to the new volume, "Even if you're not a professional mixer, even if you're a musician trying to mix your own work or a studio owner in a smaller market, you have your own set of pressures to deal with while you're mixing. Regardless of what those pressures are, it's important to identify and recognize them, if for no other reason than so you can learn to completely ignore them." But how? "That's where the Zen comes in."

    A great overview of mixing

    I picked this up after reading a glowing review in a magazine for recording engineers. I am not a mixer by trade and this book has quite a bit of content directed at the professional or wanna-be pro mixer. However, I do record and mix my own music and found many helpful pieces of advice here - not as many specific directions (i.e. cut at 200Hz) but more general but still useful (leaving room for the vocals, how to make the kick drum and bass fit together in the mix). It's an easy read, funny and mostly well-written. There is a good amount of obscenity which I didn't see mentioned in any review, so be forewarned if that would offend you. The author is also highly opinionated about the right way to mix - but he obviously knows that about himself, as he points it out several times. Otherwise I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to know more about mixing and doesn't want to get bogged down with a bunch of super-technical details.
