Understanding and Crafting the Mix gives you clear and systematic methods for identifying, evaluating, and shaping the artistic elements in music and audio recording. The exercises throughout help you to develop critical listening and evaluating skills and gain greater control over the quality of your recordings.
William Moylan takes an inside look into a range of popular music, including recordings by The Beatles, offering you insights into making meaningful sound judgements during recording. Sample production sequences and descriptions of the recordist's roles as composer, conductor and performer provides you with a clear view of the entire recording process.
The foreword has graciously been provided by industry legend Rupert Neve.
The book also includes an audio CD featuring exercises, reference materials, examples of mixes and sound qualities, and tracks and instructions for setting up and evaluating playback systems.

An excellent book that I will be recommending to all my undergraduate students. It is written in an easy-to-understand manner and covers many topics concerning listening skills and the ability to make judgments regarding the quality of sound. Of particular value are the listening exercises and tasks which can be undertaken.
