Customer Review

on 10 July 2008
As a record producer and University Lecturer on Music Technology and Production, I have read most of the limited supply of books that there is out there are on the art of mixing. Although there are a seemingly endless supply of books that cover the engineering side of things (microphones, placement, technique etc.) very few engage with the subject of mixing which is clearly a highly subjective and challenging concept to cover. As such, most of the ones that I have read leave alot to be desired.
What a delight it was then to start reading Roey Izhaki's 'Mixing Audio'. Very well written and highly engaging right from the first chapter, it is clear just how much time has gone into this publication and I was delighted by just how readable it is.
Excellent sections on the process of mixing, monitoring, software mixers, plug-ins, equalisation, gates, compression, limiting, reverbs, distortion etc. etc. are complimented by just the right amount of technical detail and demonstrated throughout on the accompanying CD. More importantly though, rather than just discussing these tools, full and comprehensive advice on how to properly utilise them is provided and backed up with audio examples.
For anyone wanting to invest in a book on this subject matter, then I really can't recommend this book highly enough. Simply superb.
