Roey Izhaki (Author) Roey Izhaki has been involved with mixing since 1992. He is an academic lecturer in the field of audio engineering and gives mixing seminars across Europe at various schools and exhibitions. He is currently lecturing in the Audio Engineering department at SAE Institute, London. Anyway, any book that's worth its salt should contain at least one chapter about mixing string sections (and string sections with other instrument sections), the most difficult to deal with recorded track or sampled instruments of all, which even rock musicians sometimes use in the studio. None of the books out there do.

The only fault noted with this book is the grammatical mistakes. Personally I loved them. On pages 12-13 is the phrase 'equal loudness counters' which I guess is a typo for the conventional label 'equal loudness contours'. On the other hand, the text explains that these curves were derived from counting people's reactions.

No kidding! I bought the book after researching what to get.
This book explains EVERYTHING. not half or a chunck. It gives the fundamentals, the parameter explanations, diagrams. It tells you why u do something not just how to do it.
That really is the reason its better than the others.
Its a textbook style format. Which i like because its easier to learn.
Its now my bible.
I looked on youtube, but so many thought on production contradict each other.
At least now i have the fundamentals of how Everything works and why.
Thank You to the Author!
I told my friends!

I bought this book a couple weeks ago because I knew I was going to be without power due to hurricane sandy!

The book really hits every angle it can from the basics of EQing, compression, limiters, expanders ect. And fleshes them out to uses way beyond the basic mixer. He dives into using busses and really getting the most out of your mixes with some of the most commonly used tricks in the industry.

It's the kind of book you're going to read several times, because there is just so much to take in. I went through it, read and highlighted everything I thought would be most helpful to my situation, and I've gone through it a few times, and instantly my mixes have gotten better.

You must download the files associated with this book, because you can practice what he presents effectively. Every other page, he gives you exercises to try out and why they are important.

If you are a beginner or even a relatively experienced engineer, there is a lot to learn from this book, and it is very relevant with the times! He breaks down the analog versions of some machines and talks how the plug ins have emulated or even built on!

This book will be on my virtual bookshelf for years to come!

All well and good in the realm of books for recording bands. Publishers pile on top of one another to market yet another book on the same subject: the kick drum, the high hats, the guitar, the bass, etc. Izsaki's book treats the same, but at a much higher level than all.

Great.

Having said that, though, the same publishing houses think nothing about the many of us who work with the orchestra. I write world music, using a great deal of strings that play chords (patches) but also carry the melody (song). A good number of my songs are written for the guitar accompanied by string ensembles, mixed with chords carried by horns and other winds (an excellent combination, btw). I also write jazz for the big band. Anyway, any book that's worth its salt should contain at least one chapter about mixing string sections (and string sections with other instrument sections), the most difficult to deal with recorded track or sampled instruments of all, which even rock musicians sometimes use in the studio. None of the books out there do. There's Andrea Perjolo's, an excellent book, a must have if one needs suggestions about working with orchestral sample libraries, but it essentially is not about mixing.

I tend to think that many a music writer sees the lacking, but won't speak up.

Lastly, I have to recognize the author's effort. This is a very big book. I can imagine the enormous amount of work that went into writing it. Kudos to you, Mr. Izhaki.

This book is like a textbook for a mixing class. The structure is outstanding, the book and each chapter are arranged to introduce concepts at a macro level and then drill down to the 'how to' details. The examples used are quite good too, with before and after audio examples to listen to via a web site. My only complain is that the examples are just about all in the genres such as Dance, Electronica, Hip-hop, Metal and such. I wished there were some jazz or more straight ahead rock examples used, that is to say, of a more natural acoustic.

This book is incredible for someone interesting in becoming a more skilful mixing engineer. Yes, it gets a bit technical and in-depth at times, but it is very well written and provides tons of audio examples to explain the concepts that are being discussed. It's truly an amazing book, and I can only add my voice to the chorus of praise that it is receiving here. I've been recording on 4-tracks and home set-ups for 20+ years, and just recently got more involved in mixing and wanted to get a bit more serious and learn more about it. This book is perfect for me. Some parts are slightly advanced, so I have to re-read them a few times, but it's great overall. Some parts are covered briefly, like acoustic treatment, but you can get more technical books on those subjects if you like. Super experienced mixing engineers probably don't need this (although they still might benefit from the audio examples on the companion website), but for advanced beginner to intermediate level people like me, it is great. It's probably only not for absolute total beginners, as it's a lot to take in at once.

I have been recording audio sources for over 15 years and a lot of my mixing practices have been learned "on the fly" so to speak. I wish that this book had been availible 15 years ago so that my learning curve could have been a lot smaller. Allthough not a great book for beginners, it is really the only book you will really need for years to come as far information on audio recording and mixing. The section on studio monitors(speakers) was very helpful for me because one of my monitor pairs gave up the ghost. These were ported monitors and after reading this section in the book I purchased a different type of monitor and the sound is amazing!!! I am allready noticing vast improvements in my mixes and how they port to real world listening enviroments.

If you have a studio or are interested in the science and ART of mixing audio then you really need to buy this book!! 'nuff said!
