David Gibson's hugely popular The Art of Mixing, the book that has taught a generation of mixing engineers, comes to life with over 3-1/2 hours of vivid, animated instruction on one feature-packed DVD! With Gibson's exclusive three-dimensional framework, you'll learn the right way to create every style of mix for any style of music.

Topics covered include: descriptions and visuals of the functions of each piece of studio equipment involved in mixing • specific concepts behind making a mix that is appropriate for the music and the song • correlations between audio parameters and the visual paramaeters of the “virtual mixer” • and much more! Get ready for an in-depth exploration into the aesthetics of what makes a great mix! David Gibson's unique approach to mixing gives you a visual representation of the dynamics of the sounds involved in creating a musical mix. Through this three-dimensional, colorful explanation, you are introduced to a framework that will help you understand everything that an engineer does-- enabling you to not only recognize what you like, but how to achieve it in your studio. Expand your recording techniques by learning what your recording equipment does and how it all works together in a simple, visual manner. From bluegrass to big band, new age to heavy metal, classical to hip-hop, jazz to rap, and alternative rock to techno, Gibson has mapped out everything that can be done to create various effects in all standard mixes. Once you have a perspective on what can be done, you have the power to be truly creative on your own: to make art out of technology.

Thank you for posting this. Here's a good component for playing it with Quicktime on Mac:

Oh my God - if you're interested in producing tuitional video at all (and I've been doing it for a few years)then this video is worth watching simply because it contains just about every instance of "what NOT to do" that could possibly exist.

There are some great lessons to be learned in this video, but you'll have to work really REALLY hard to see past:

1: The presenter's "Mullet From Hell" hairstyle (do they give awards for mullets? This guy should win gold when they next hand them out)

2: The cheesey and cheap video transitions

3: The insult to your intelligence that comes in the form of unnecessary two-dimensional sterotyped characters that crop up in an attempt to be entertaining (and if you're black, you'll be forgiven for just pulling an Elvis and shooting your monitor)

4: Come to think of it, if you're white you'll want to shoot the monitor as well.

5: The presenter's accent - this guys looks and sounds like Dr Phil with a mullet wig after doing six months of Jenny Craig while wearing Bozo the Clown's cast-off sports jackets.

Apart from that, there's some good snippets of wisdom to be gleaned from watching this, but you'll need therapy afterwards.

Wow, this video is really something. Its hilarious yet it has lots of great info for those starting in mixing and for those that have been doing it for a while without really knowing how it is done.

Even though its quite old (they don't even talk about computers) audio is still audio and everybody can learn something from this vid (at least you'll learn about how spiritually is involved in mixing...).

Thanks for the upload!
