Product Description

Review

"This introductory guide to music mixing provides theoretical and practical information on the technical aspects of sound engineering, as well as discussion of the creative aspects of the art. Beginning with a section on concepts and principles, the bulk of the work focuses on specific tools and their uses, while a final section provides walk-throughs of simple mixing projects based on music genres. Chapters include numerous illustrations and an emphasis on technical versus creative lessons is stressed throughout."--Reference and Research Book News

"Praise for the first edition: Absolutely first rate. The standard of writing by Roey Izhaki, as well as the examples on the CD are just superb."--Mark Mynett, Senior Lecturer, Department of Engineering & Technology, School of Computing & Engineering, University of Huddersfield

"This book has become indispensable for me, and now resides on my desk, often open in front of me when I’m mixing! If you only get one book on mixing, make it this one. So far it’s the only one I’ve got, and I find it more than comprehensive. I’m on my second read through to pick up all the things I missed first time around!" -- Ben Trigg, Musician and Studio Owner, Musicians' Republic

Mixing Audio, Practices and Tools is simply a fabulous Book on Mixing Audio. The amount of work that has been put into it is simply amazing. Not just a well written, properly researched book. It provides a superfluity of high quality professional appraisals and examples of the state of the art of mixing; the book itself is a statement and in depth explanation of the State of the Art of Mixing. Written by someone that has enthusiasm, passion and abundant understanding of what it takes to mix music professionally in the digital age. Additionally it is not only a superior, readable work but would provide future studio reference material.

A very detailed walk through all of the aspects of audio mixing.
The chapter on compression is particularly good - going into exactly how a compressor works and what attack and release time really mean on an electronics subsystem level.

This is a very good book which i use in conjunction with my sound engineering course. Great as a reference book and as an interesting pick up and read!
Useful for those who are novices at mixing, like yours truly!

By Andy M on 20 Sept. 2012
Format: Paperback
With the atomisation of the once-monolithic recording industry into what is effectively now a cottage industry of thousands of individuals producing music at home on affordable, high-quality digital systems, there is a real need for a book that lays out the mixing process in a clear, authoritative and entertaining way. This is that book.

I can't recommend it highly enough. It's an absolutely excellent resource for anyone trying to improve their mixing skills. The writer assumes no specialist knowledge, but never talks down to the reader. The content is very well-organised, starting from general principles and moving in logical steps through the process of turning a multi-track recording into a finished mix ready for mastering.

Izhaki emphasises that mixing is as much an art as it is a science - but even great artists need to know how to use the tools at their disposal. So whether you've just dropped the price of a small car on your home recording set-up or you just enjoy messing about with Garageband on your I-pad, do yourself a favour and get this. Reading through it, I am having more and more moments where I find myself making a satisfied 'ah' noise! The sound of pennies dropping is beginning to annoy the neighbours.

I bought the second edition of the book a while ago and was disappointed to find that it came without the DVD. Eventually, I went to the website for the book and emailed the author to ask about this. To my surprise and delight, I received a reply from the author the next morning, telling me where I could download the audio files that accompany it. Now that's service! Thank you, Roey!

Finally the book came. I looked. No CD. But I had bought the book, rather than the download, because it came with a CD.
But it didn't come with a CD. This is disappointing for a book that costs £30 and is described as having an accompanying CD. so come on guys. Play the game. I need to hear quality tracks to discover the difference in mixes. Not MP3s. Even if I can find them.
I would seriously suggest you (the potential buyer) consider the download instead of the book. Its almost half the price and if you can find the files you can download those as easily. So I have to say it is frustrating to come across a reference in the book 'to understand why, .. listen to the four versions of Smells like Teen Spirit indicated below' - when these are nowhere to be found. My suggestion would be to post a DVD to all buyers of the book by way of apology, since rewriting it seems out of the question. Overall - very let down. Probably wouldn't have bought it had I know there would not be samples. After all what good is telling me a strawberry tastes sweet and not giving me the chance to taste it myself?

This is a great book for anyone who is new into the world of mixing and I would say even for people who are deep into mixing and need something tangible for reference time to time. It's written by one of the most authoritative people on this subject and very well laid out with respect to topics and their explanation. It has links to a website which explain all the stuff written in there in terms of sound/music examples, so that really helps a lot. Believe me, the best "tool" that you can get, if you are starting out with mixing, is this book!
