Zen and the Art of Mixing - "Dough head. You gave away the farm."
Zen and the Art of Mixing - "I never thought anybody could write a meaningful book about mixing but Mixerman has done exactly that. I learned early-on that great recording engineering and mixing is largely a matter of keeping your mind out of the way and here is one man's brilliant approach to accomplishing precisely that."

Zen and the Art of Mixing Intro
Please Note: You must purchase the digital version of the book in order to view the clips. We realize there are some of you who prefer to read the paperback. Unfortunately, in order to watch the clips, you need the digital version of the book. Think of it like it’s a DVD, only if you’re okay with reading on a screen, then you get the book too.
In his first book, The Daily Adventures of Mixerman, the author detailed the frustrating and often hilarious goings-on during the process of recording a major-label band. Musicians, engineers, and producers laughed and cried at the crazy goings-on they’d never imagined or recognized all too well.
Now in his REV 2, fully updated edition of Zen and the Art of Mixing, Mixerman turns his razor-sharp gaze to the art of mixing and gives followers and the uninitiated reason to hope if not for logic and civility in the recording studio then at least for a good sounding record. With a firm commitment to art over technology and to maintaining a grasp of each, Mixerman outlines his own approach to recording success, based on his years mixing records in all genres of music for all kinds of artists, often under trying circumstances. As he states in his introduction to the new volume, “Even if you’re not a professional mixer, even if you’re a musician trying to mix your own work or a studio owner in a smaller market, you have your own set of pressures to deal with while you’re mixing. Regardless of what those pressures are, it’s important to identify and recognize them, if for no other reason than so you can learn to completely ignore them.”
But how? “That’s where the Zen comes in.”
