    I did a search, but didn't find much. Anyways, what are your opinions regarding the best book to better my mixing skills? I'm not a complete noob (I know what reverb/compression/etc is), but I certainly have plenty of room to improve.

    Thanks

    I just picked up Mixing With Your Mind. I'll let you know how it is. I haven't found too many other books very helpful on mixing.

    That book changed my mixes because I could suddenly edit them to sound better and mix themselves easier. Not enough can said about a good performance, and you can force them to be at least acceptable/perfectly in time.

    Sorry to bump this up, but out of the two, which one is better? I'm pretty sure I've heard good things on both here now:

    Mixing secrets for the small studio by mike senior has excellent information regarding setting up your room and preparation to mixing, could not rate this book high enough.
