This is the fourth book I've bought on the subject and by far the most useful in terms of demystifying the process and giving you a whole toolbox of techniques that are useful and effective. No filler or fat here, just meat. Worth its weight in gold...or maybe platinum. Been making CDs since 2002 and just flying by the seat of my pants but with this book under my belt, confident that my next release is going to be much more highly advanced and shockingly good. Buy with confidence!
For those who seriously want to make great mixes, this is one. It is easy to understand, I apply some techniques, and they work great (subtracted EQ, and multiple reverb busses).
Additional readings by other authors like Mixing Secretes will complement the mixing process immensely.
