SAE lecturer publishes Mixing Audio book with DVD 27/11/07
Mixing is considered by many the elusive final step in the recording process â€“ that last piece of the jigsaw that can make or break a track. A new 584 page paperback book, Mixing Audio: Concepts, Practices and Tools contains a comprehensive guide to tackling this crucial and much misunderstood subject making it, the publishers believe, â€œthe ultimate audio mixing bible for beginners and pros alike.â€� The author is Roey Izhaki, who has been mixing professionally for 15 years, and has been passing on his knowledge as a lecturer at Londonâ€™s SAE Institute for the last four years.
Over the course of 584 pages, Roey Izhaki guides the reader on a logical journey that begins with the very basics of mixing right up to the tricks, tips and techniques used by mix professionals in a wide variety of mixing situations.
Mixing Audio offers much more than a textual reference, however. The subjects contained within are exhaustively committed to the page and illustrated with almost 300 diagrams to better aid understanding but there is also an included DVD designed to provide an aural journey to the very heart of the mix process.
The accompanying DVD contains over 2,000 audio examples, including four full audio mixes that are discussed and dissected at length within the book. These mixes cover a range of contemporary genres (Rock, Hip Hop, Techno, Drum & Bass), so offer a wealth of real-world experience â€“ not just on the principles of mixing, but also the practices, concepts and tools that are necessary for achieving success with your mixes.
