This book is a gift of gratitude to anyone that wants to take a step into out-of-this-world sounding songs.
This book is accessible and engaging, with plenty of pithy one-liners that make serious and thought-provoking points. Essential reading for anyone interested in improving their mixing skills, and streamlining their working methods.
Some absolute gems of advice to pick up here. The brilliant and clear way everything is presented and the actual (hallelujah!) settings for your template laid out for you, make this essential for any mix engineer, or anyone striving to be one.
The book is also an excellent reference for identifying frequencies a pro mixer will often cut or boost on certain instruments; I always nodded my head at Billy’s choices. Throughout the book there are a lot of thoughts and practices that will help a mix engineer keep their focus, searching for “feel” as opposed to “perfection.” There really is a lot of information packed into these 126 pages.
