"Just got the book yesterday..love it.Got a lot of relavent thoughts and views for the now times.. great job... best of luck with it. And once again, thanks for including me in such an important work." - Jimmy Douglass, Award-winning, multi-platinum engineer and mixer "Just wanted you to know that I am using your Mix book as REQUIRED text in two of my college classes. It has been working out great!! The kids love it, and it makes my job VERY easy!" - Bruce Tambling The book is an awesome collection of vital information followed by "how to". It's a book you want by your side at all times through the mixing process. I have the previous versions, but you have to add this version to your collection. It stands on its own merit and is worth three times the cost for what you will learn. Well done Bobby, this one is the tops man!" - Oz Amaro "The mixing engineer's handbook is the best publication ever on the subject! Every time I've recommended it, they've been delighted." - Eric Barouti "Possibly the greatest book on mixing ever written. While it doesn't get in-depth about every topic, it probably mentions every single topic there is. Get this book if you're just starting to mix or if you want to learn more." - Dr. Kenneth "After 30 years of working from bending over the shoulder of other engineers, taking to mastering engineers, intuition, instruction manuals and YouTube videos -- there were plenty of "Aha!" Moments. Favorite was the tip to find panning position by panning with mix in mono." - Frank Rogala "Bobby Owsinski"s "The Mixing Engineer's Handbook is a veritable gold mine of practical knowledge and advice, that empowers its reader to create higher quality mixes." - Charlotte Wrinch, Canadian Singer-Songwriter "To your credit, your book on mixing is superb The book really went way beyond simple panning, eq, compression and effects. I like how it addressed the more subtle issues of feel. That kinda stuff is not addressed well in the other books." - Perry Woll I gotta send you an email praising your mixing engineer book. I give interns your book and I say, "Here, read this and find out how records are REALLY mixed in the REAL world", and then they start to blossom. It is a great book." - LS "This book gave me exactly the introduction to mixing I was hoping for. Great examples and eye-opening (ear-opening?) interviews with industry legends gave me instant experience and a solid knowledge base from which to draw. Every beginning mixer - heck, ever producer should read this." David Baliestro "The Mixing Engineer's Handbook by Bobby Owsinski is superb, a must have. Every time I pick it up I learn something. In fact, I just spent a couple hours with it this morning and am now trying out a bunch of the techniques mentioned." - Calgary "Just bought the book (Mixing Engineer's Handbook 3rd edition) and as much as I've learned about mixing & engineering (which is never enough) I find this book is a great one-stop shop to remind myself of all the little details to keep track of in a mix. The interviews are fantastic and it's just a must-have for any engineer!"- Glenn Martin "I bought this book a few years ago and have found it an invaluable source of information on how to record. With tips and tricks from some of the best engineers in the world. If you record audio this is one of the best upgrades to your studio you can make."
