A lot has changed in the recording industry since the first edition of The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook was published in 2000, so the 2nd edition provides completely new and updated information about the things relevant to today's mixing, including tips for getting a loud mix, mixing for Internet distribution (including MP3 encoding, streaming audio, and extensive audio codec details), and surround sound mixing. Guaranteed to help you get a great mix regardless of what kind of studio you’re mixing in or the kind of music you’re mixing, you’ll find your mixing chops getting better with each chapter.

There's also a completely new chapter on how to get the most from mixing inside your computer (“In The Box”), as well as a new section on the relationship between the bass/drum and how to make this difficult part of mixing easy.

The book wraps up with 22 insightful interviews with the top engineers from all genres of music, including George Massenburg, Allen Sides, Bruce Swedien, Eliot Scheiner (new), Andy Johns, Nathanial Kunkel (new), Jimmy Douglass (new), Dave Pensado, and many more.
