What are people saying about Step By Step Mixing?


I’m a singer, songwriter, producer and now after reading this I’d finally call myself a mix engineer as well.

Before reading this I felt like I had a pretty ok understanding of mixing and just needed to fill in the gaps, but after reading this I realized that I didn’t know much at all.

I got so much out of this. This is truly a fantastic book for any new, aspiring or even seasoned mix engineers. I’ve always wanted to just sit next to some pro MEs to see how they did it and I finally feel like I had that chance.

Every page is filled with great info and at no point did he ever feel like Björgvin was trying to fill pages. Literally every page and word was extremely helpful. So now I need to stop reading and taking notes obsessively and get to mixing.

Keep em coming Björgvin. Great Stuff!

As an audio educator myself I am always on the lookout for new ways to teach this fascinating subject. I found Step by Step Mixing to be an enjoyable read, which focuses on the important parts.

As Bjorgvin mentions in the introduction, this might be the 20% of processors and plug-ins that actually do 80% or more of the work that needs to be done. I loved that he started with a chapter on mixing with no plug-ins. I always do that with my students, and it has proved to be a good method.

I can safely recommend this book to anyone that mixes music, whether a novice or a seasoned pro.

Stop guessing, or struggling with trial and error methods. Clear concise, step by step, solid advice from a Professional whom is willing to share with you, his talents and experience.

You will find yourself reading this book more than once as it also becomes a quick reference for each of the topics and techniques that are covered.

Who am I and Why Should You Trust Me?

Hi, I'm Björgvin Benediktsson and I run Audio Issues. I've written over 1,000 articles on music production since 2008 and taught thousands of home studio musicians how to produce, record and mix their music.

Let me tell you, I had no clue what I was doing when I first started mixing.

I thought mixing was supposed to be fun and cool but I was just intimidated. All I was doing was randomly inserting plug-ins and processors on every track, shrugging my shoulders because I couldn't really figure out how anything worked.

No matter what I did I couldn't make it sound better. I mean, the songs changed, but I didn't really know where I was going with the mix. There was no balance to the instruments and the vocals sounded glued on and fake.

It just screamed "amateur."

The reason why was simple. I had no plan of action, and no concrete steps to make my mixes sound like I wanted.

Years later, after countless hours of recording and mixing, I know what I am doing.

Mixing became fun.

With simple EQ and compression tricks, I got punchy drums and full and balanced instruments. I started using reverb and delay to create space and depth for that professional feel. My vocals sounded better than ever as I started to recognize and eliminate problematic frequencies, adding some secret sauce with saturation and blending them into the mix so they wouldn't feel stuck on top.

Throughout my learning process I realized that the plug-ins I kept coming back to when I needed to make the mix sound open and dynamic were these five processors.

  • EQ
  • Compression
  • Reverb
  • Delay
  • Saturation

Now that I've learned how to master these five plug-ins, I'm paying that forward by teaching you these mixing techniques you can use to improve your productions immediately.

The #1 Best-Selling Amazon book Step By Step Mixing is my complete guide to the mixing process using only the five plug-ins you really need.

As always, your decision is backed by my 100% Risk-Free Money-Back-Guarantee.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, let me know and I will happily refund your money, no questions asked. 

If you’re not happy, I’m not happy.
