A long-time music industry veteran, Bobby Owsinski started his career as a guitar and keyboard player, songwriter and arranger, eventually becoming an in-demand producer/engineer working not only with a variety of recording artists, but on commercials, television and motion pictures as well. One of the first to delve into surround sound music mixing, Bobby has worked on over a hundred surround projects and DVD productions for a variety of superstar acts.

The Mixing Engineer's Handbook book. Full of great mix strategies and ideas. The interviews at the end are a little tedious because Owsinski asks the same questions in each.

The book has since become the go-to text on mixing for recording programs in colleges and universities around the world.

The book wraps up with 25 insightful interviews with the top engineers from all genres of music, including George Massenburg, Bruce Swedien, Eliot Scheiner, Dave Pensado, Ken Scott, Andrew Schep, Richard Chycki (new) and many more (see the table of contents for a complete list). 1,180 Pages·2014·540 KB·13,586 Downloads·New!

Secrets of the top recording engineers revealed at mixdown! Learn the evolution of mixing, regional mixing styles, the six elements of a mix, rules for arrangements and principles of building your mix! Learn the secrets of EQ and "magic frequencies" along with adding effects, EQ'ing reverbs, sonic layering of effects, calculating the delay time and much more! This book extensively covers stereo mixing with an expansive chapter on mixing in 5.1 surround. Plus, it includes an incredible third section filled with interviews with the top engineers in the field such as George Massenburg, Allen Sides, Bruce Swedien and over a dozen more!
  • I bought this book back in 2004 and i still refer to it once in a while. I like the info it gives on delay effects and how to calculate the right number of milliseconds depending on your bpm. If you're using a modern-day DAW, you'll probably just set the delay to the tempo of the song and then choose 16ths, 8ths, or whatever you please. But it's nice to know the calculations behind it all.
    This book is not organized in great detail. It's mostly interviews and the engineers speaking freely, so you're not going to find everything you want to know about delays in one section, everything about panning in another section, etc. But if you flip through the pages, you'll get lots of good information.
    The drawback to this format is that you don't get great detail on some of the information. For example, in one section where one of the engineers talks about the chorus effect, he says, and i am paraphrasing: "Synthesizers don't provide a true stereo image. What i do is I throw out one of the channels and then add a delay to the channel." Ok, so what does "throw out one of the channels mean?" Does it mean to record the synth in mono with one cable? How much delay does he apply to the channel that was recorded? How about panning?
    All in all, the book is useful and i would recommend it to you, although you'll probably wish that the engineers would go into greater detail so you can copy their techniques.

  • I'm what you might call a casual musician. Despite years of recording in a home studio, most recently on Sonar, my mixes have been completely hit or miss. Actually, make that almost exclusively "miss." Trial and error is so time consuming and uninspiring. This book is not for a beginner who needs all terminology explained. But I imagine even beginners could get a lot out of this book. The concepts are presented clearly, rationally, in an easy-to-read manner.

    I read this book over the weekend and tonight sat down with an old song. I re-mixed it completely in about 2 hours. Then I compared the new mix to the old mix. The new mix had constant levels (thank you, compression) and good distinct frequency eq allocations for the various instruments. The old mix sounded like it was recorded in a wet cardboard box.

    This book was a cheap investment for the insight it has given me.

  • This book should be labeled "Mixing for Dummies" it is so simple and straight forward. Its not a bunch of theory that no one understands, but it is full of actual tips. <Example: If you want your snare to sound this way boost at 2k and cut at 400hz set you compressor to this, and bus it to an Aux track w/blah blah blah> those numbers aren't actually right but its just an example. Its like having several personal mixing mentors telling you exactly what to do. If you follow the tips in this book you'll end up with pretty good mixes.

  • This is such a fabulous book taking a coffee break with the who's who of big producers. If you do music, you'll know there isn't really a shortcut to everything. That is why GREAT production work is such an art and everyone's got their way to make it sound.. sound off effortlessly... if they're good.

    The producers gives you a glimpse of how they go about their sound and there's a lil' history of where they've been, with whom they've worked with.

    I open it for reference or a for a quick 'pick me up' when I become frustrated with the process.

    This book isn't for everyone and if you're expecting " Mixing For Dummies', you best look elsewhere.

  • Beginners beware. I can see where this book may be helpful to someone who has done years of mixing as an engineer. And would like a book to remember back in the day. But as far as any practical help on mixing there is nothing here. Not one detail description of one single mix. Help me Spock! How about telling me how you would mix a guitar, hard right? Middle? Reverb? With what effects? Can you give me something I can use? Like I said, if you're an engineering pro, and would like some general ideas to try, this may be your book, but if you're a beginner like me, save yourself some cash and look at a YouTube video.

  • Lots of different approaches to common problems and tasks, all specific enough to be of real help. helped me create better sounding mixes.

  • Very well-written. A bit on the technical side, but it should be.

  • Real world advice from a working professional. Actually, many working professionals... the book draws heavily from a couple dozen interviews of some of pro audio's heavy hitters (advice from Bruce Swedien and George Massenberg is always welcome!). Lots of different approaches to common problems and tasks, all specific enough to be of real help. I bought this book 2 weeks ago, and it has already helped me create better sounding mixes.
