Hello,

Has anybody seen this video and/or read the book?

http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-Mixing-En ... +of+mixing

I know the video looks pretty dated (and although amazon mentions the dvd is from 2004 the source material is from videotapes long time ago) but the way of thinking you can get out of this is essential.

I just realised that I have seen this for the first time 5 or 6 years ago (I rewatched it many times) and how much it influenced me.

I just wanted to share this with you. I guess you can get snippets from it on youtube.

Let me know what you think about it, or about any learning tool that opened your eyes.

I got that book when it was first published, and related to it immediately.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in "seeing" sound placement, or who perceives sound as the 3D "stage" it truely is.

Perception is the ultimate "reality" ~ but not, the ultimate Truth.

I have it too, but did not get any new insights really - and I was pretty ignorant.

Visual aspect is not that useful - to me anyway.

I thought Mixing Engineers Handbook by Bobby Owsinksky was way better.

And recently, thanks to tips here on KVR I got another set of books:

Mixing secrets for the small studio Mike Senior
Producers manual - Paul White

Mixing audio - concepts, pratices and tools - Roey Izhaki.
Have not read this one yet though.

Bobby Owsinski's book is very good IIRC. I did not like his mastering book.

Izhaki's book is superb.

I saw The Art of Mixing video some years back, a friend had a DVD, as I remember, it was very interesting.

lfm mentioned about Mixing Secrets for the Home Studio, read almost 1/2 so far and I really enjoyed it, such a great book! incl the free online guides and tracks for mixing practice! :tu:

the videos are pretty funny to watch these days, cheesy as hell. but yes very informative for people with a visual mind. i can see why some people wouldnt gain anything from his work though.
but definitely give it a try if youre struggling with mixes and find the data style books dont work for you.

both the book and dvd get regular viewing here.
