Zen and the Art of Mixing (review)

If you’re into making music you need to read this book.

Mixerman knows what he’s writing about – he claims extensive mixing experience and it shows. His/her writing style is friendly and accessible. I love that the book starts with some definitions and assumptions – those lay the groundwork for what good mixing means.

For me, the best chapter is on Mechanics; I was reminded of a number of things I should have been doing as I mixed my work but wasn’t. With DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) you can have access to lots of ‘equipment’ – in my old home studio I had one compressor, for example….

I can’t recommend this book highly enough, once I started it I had to keep picking it up and reading it until I was done.
