As an avid audio enthusiast, producer, mixer, composer and recordist and an educator of same at City College of San Francisco, you can imagine that I’ve read a LOT of books on the topic. I’m passionate about sound and always seek out new and fresh texts for my students. I FOUND AN EXCELLENT “MUST HAVE” for anyone pursuing music recording and mixing as a career and life-long hobby.
Mike Senior is the Mix Specialist at Sound On Sound magazine – one of my favorite’s that I’ve subscribed to for several years. His articles are always highly entertaining and educational even for an old pro. His book does not disappoint. He’s a great writer and I thoroughly recommend it for newbies and oldbies!
