Reviews Mike Indovina’s book, “The Mixing Mindset,” is the beginners’ mixing instruction manual we’ve been missing. This book is loaded with great information that so many other mixing instructors never mention. It of course goes into detail on all the technical aspects of mixing, giving examples of good EQ and compression moves for all kinds of situations, but it also largely focuses on the creative decision-making and problem-solving skills needed to construct a great mix. This is the key thing that so many other mixing tip sources fail to touch on. Most of the material you can find elsewhere on the subject will just throw suggestions at you without actually hearing where it’s being applied, and beginners will take that as a kind of cure-all solution for any situation; when in actuality the tip likely won’t work in their case. Mike makes a point of letting you know that you need to actually use your ears and evaluate your own mix to diagnose what exactly the problems are. He makes sure that you’re aware that there is no cure all, while still giving you all the tools you need to be capable of finding the solution to your unique mixing problems. “The Mixing Mindset” is going to change the way people learn mixing, and will likely lead to young engineers improving significantly more quickly than they ever have before. - Bryan Primrose About The Author: Mike Indovina is a recording, mixing, and mastering engineer who has worked with hundreds of artists throughout his career.
