Zen & the Art of MIXING
Mixing is a game of confidence. But how can you mix with confidence, when you’re unsure of your mixing skills? The answer is, you can’t. Which is why I address how you think about mixing in Zen & the Art of Mixing (last updated in 2021). So you can learn to work quickly towards a mix that does everything it should for the song. This will result in more confidence, which manifests as success and enjoyment.
There’s a reason why this is my most popular work.

The Daily Adventures of MIXERMAN
Mixerman is a Los Angeles recording engineer who in the summer of 2002, on nothing more than a hunch, began to chronicle the daily events of his Major Label recording session with a bidding-war band, an infamous producer, and a limitless budget. And he did it in real-time—each night posting his entries on the Internet, withholding only the true identities of those he writes about. Mixerman is supposed to be writing about recording techniques, but somehow, through that prism, he has hit upon a gripping story.
