+1 for the Bobby Owsinski books, The Recording Engineer's Handbook goes into some detail on how to record a whole different range of instruments, so might help the OP on how to mike up a sitar. One other book I've found an excellent resource is Roey Izhaki's The Art of Mixing - in fact it's the one I keep going back to and reading cover to cover - comes with an audio DVD with several hundred sound clips as techniques are explained. That's my pick of them all.

I agree with the Roey Izhaki's book, but I think it's titled "Mixing Audio, concepts, practices and tools".


"The art of Mixing" is a David Gibson's one.

Nice topic!

But I find that the main goal would be to give 4 or 5 really basic (I mean, important) books that anyone here should read or have in our studios.

yeah, i'm about to invest in some books as I want to strengthen my knowledge about mixing, and then move onto recording techniques.

From what i've read the other 'must have' books on mixing & recording are;

"Behind The Glass"
"Mixing With Your Mind"
"The Mixing Engineers Handbook" - bobby owsinski

and i'm looking for a few more 'definites' if anyone has any opinions
