Editorial Reviews


"Every now and then an indispensable book comes along that can profoundly influence you in the development of your audio skills – this might be one of them." David Baer, Sound Bytes


"The usual topics of effects, compression, and EQ are covered but in more realistic, hands-on detail than most vague mixing guides usually are fluffed up with. Special attention is given early on to the importance of phase, space, and time and how all these interrelate. One of the best features of this book is that Wessel doesn’t generally hand out specific names of hardware or plug-ins to use but instead educates the user about actual techniques, what type of gear will achieve the desired goals, and why it works. These are the fundamental building blocks of quality mixing; not some whiz-bang plug-in template that claims to always deliver "perfect vocals" or some such lie. Other topics include the practical realities of maintaining objectivity, working with others, and even serving the clients’ needs as opposed to your own ego. Mixing with Impact is a perfect handbook for the mix engineer, and I find myself thumbing through it and nodding my head at all the truth within its pages." Larry Crane, Tape Op Magazine/Jackpot! Recording Studio


"All in all, then, Mixing With Impact's 350 pages are packed with useful ideas, up-to-date, well-marshalled information, and great conceptual explanations backed up with lots of useful diagrams. It should help anyone with an open mind, be they seasoned pros or aspiring engineers taking their first tentative steps into the world of mixing, to reflect on and improve their own way of working." Matt Houghton, Sound on Sound
