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.Was this review helpful?
