What You Can Learn from Mixing by Eating a Kiwi

On the cruise around Cuba, my mother-in-law looks at me with a puzzled expression.

“I’ve never seen anyone eat a kiwi like that,” she says.

I scoop another spoonful of kiwi into my mouth and realize that this is the only way I eat a kiwi. You cut it in half and then eat it from the inside with a spoon.

“How are you supposed to eat a kiwi?” I ask.

“You peel the skin off and eat the rest,” she responds bemused.

Fast forward to a month ago. I’m lounging by the pool, the rolling Tuscan hills of Italy a perfect backdrop for a lazy day of white wine and relaxation.

“Do you want a kiwi?” my sister asks.

I look up and she pushes a whole kiwi towards my face, her smirk silhouetted by the mid-day sun.

I stare at the fruit and ask, “how am I supposed to eat that?”

She rolls her eyes at me and shrugs her shoulders. “I just eat the skin, it’s probably full of fiber or something.”

I eye her suspiciously, 25 years of spidey-sense warning me of her tricks. She sighs.

“Fine, don’t believe me? Here,” she says and takes a big bite out of the kiwi, skin and all.

Although I prefer my way of kiwi-eating, both my sister’s and my mother-in-law’s methods were equally valid.

Just like there are multiple ways to eat a kiwi, there are a million ways to get to a finished mix.

My Step By Step Mixing method is just one of the ways that have worked for thousands of home studio musicians and project studio producers.

If you’re frustrated with your way of mixing and you’re done jumping from one quick tip to another on Youtube, you should give the Step By Step Mixing method a try.
