Reviews - What do customers think about The Art of Mixing: A Visual Guide to Recording, Engineering, and Production, Second Edition?
The Art of Teaching Dec 23, 2007
That's the first time a write a review. I'm a beginner in sound mixing and I found this book to be simple and yet complete enough to reveal the complexity of mixing. Actually, it opens doors for you to experiment and open you mind (and ears) to the broad possibilities that sound mixing can offer.
Good idea - but get over it! Oct 19, 2007
David Gibson's book is based on the standard practice of imaging used by professional mixing engineers. His idea to make visual representations of all aspects of the mixing process is a good one but it seems to be the sum total of the book. Once you understand the essential premise, there is very little else to be gained. Certainly for a beginner it is very useful. A lot of basics are covered, but he is guilty of trying to over-simplify what is a very complex artform. Also, the language used in the book is off-putting in its bubbly, informal style. It is a pity that this idea is so badly executed because it has enormous potential as a teaching tool in conjunction with concrete musical knowledge.

it's a really amazing book on the ART of mixing. i'm a home recorder newbie, and found this book very useful, when i tried to figure out the way spacing sounds in the universe of beauty. it focuses on a pretty well-defined aspect of the stuff, and helps to improve your own vision how instruments should work in your imagination. but if you're looking for technical information, you'd better to buy this book and another one together. btw, it's clear and simple, so i've already read it 3times.
