Never learned so much about mixing,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mixing Audio: Concepts, Practices and Tools (Paperback)
very simple : unless you are very happy with your mixes, this book is a must have.
Even better than what I expected. This book is very complete and really makes mixes better.
This book talks really seriously and precisely about mixing. I've catched advice that I now use all the time. A few examples :
Compressing : I've been using compressors for 5 years and I've read a lot about compressors and to be honest, this is the first time I understand how a compressor works ... The "usual" explanation is wrong.
Now when I open a compressor window, I know why and how I'll use it
Reverbs : I didn't know that gating the reverb was the way to have that "big" sound without the "amateur" flush we always hear on home-studio mixes; this is the way to have very audible but short reverbs without distorsion.
Equalization : I have never used a high-pass filter that way ... now I really "aggressively" clear the bottom end on most guitars, vocals ans so on ... and my bass and kick just stick out the mix.
I am still working with this book. It is a book I'll never get rid of.
a master piece.
