Zen and the Art of Recording

All of the Zen and the Art of books are available as a Multimedia Edition eBook on Kindle, IBooks, and Nook. This enhanced multimedia e-book edition brings recordists deeper into the concepts covered in the text. It features over an hour’s worth of supplemental videos in which Mixerman demonstrates various recording techniques in a number of recording spaces. The clips provide invaluable insight into what to listen for when choosing gear and placing mics, and Mixerman walks us through all of this in well over an hour of clips. This multimedia eBook is an absolute must-have for anyone who enjoys recording music and wants to get better doing it.


  • Zen and the Art of Recording - "In the absence of an opportunity to apprentice in a major recording studio, this book is the next best thing. A way to learn from the best".

    William Wittman (Cyndi Lauper, Joan Osborne, The Fixx)
  • Zen and the Art of Recording - "Zen and the Art of Recording describes an approach rather than a recipe. This is important because in the real world nothing works the same way every time. This is an excellent overview of the issues to be considered along with a broad variety of proven techniques for addressing them."

    Bob Olhsson (Stevie Wonder, Jackson Five, Marvin Gaye)
  • Zen and the Art of Recording - "Mixerman has done it again! With his signature humorous and entertaining style, he imparts a world of invaluable information for the aspiring recordist and musician in an easy to absorb (not overly technical) common sense manner."

    Ron Saint Germain (300+ million in sales, U2, Whitney Houston, 311)
  • Zen and the Art of Producing - "Informative and entertaining, this is a book that any 'wannabe producers' (and several established producers) should keep in their racks to constantly use as a reference."

    Ron Saint Germain (Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Living Colour)

Zen and the Art of Recording Intro

Please Note: You must purchase the digital version of the book in order to view the clips. They couldn’t get the videos to play on paper.

In this book, the third in the Zen and the Art Of series, Mixerman distills the inescapable technical realities of recording down to understandable and practical terms. Whether musician or self-taught recordist, whether at home or in a full-blown studio complex, you’ll discover a definitive blueprint for recording within the current realities of the business, without ever losing focus on the core consideration–the music itself.

As Mixerman writes: “The moment you start to think in musical terms, your recordings will improve a hundredfold.”
