Hi, I'm Björgvin Benediktsson, Audio Engineer, Icelander, and Author of Step By Step Mixing.
I've worked as a live sound engineer, a broadcast recording engineer, a professional touring musician, a freelance mixing and mastering engineer, and an audio educator.
Since 2009, I've been helping people like you transform their rough recordings into professional records they can be proud to release through my website Audio Issues.
But let me tell you, I had no clue what I was doing when I first started mixing.
No matter how many Youtube videos I watched or plug-ins I bought, my mixes never sounded good enough.
There was no balance to the instruments and the vocals sounded glued on and fake.
If you've randomly added plug-ins to tracks, tweaked presets that didn't fit, and selected inappropriate effects that weren't suitable for your song then I know how you feel.
It was all just so intimidating.
Put simply, my mixes screamed "Amateur!" because the truth is...
...you'll waste time mixing in circles, never getting to a final, finished record you can proudly play for people.
15 years later, after countless hours working on audio and helping thousands of musicians and producers confidently make music they could be proud to release, I've created a fool-proof process for pro mixes.
And throughout the years I realized that the plug-ins I kept coming back to when I needed my mixes to sound open, dynamic, and professional were these five processors:
And once you follow this step-by-step mixing process, mixing will become easy for you. I guarantee it.
So if you want to...
...then the Step By Step Mixing process is exactly what you need to create professional and release-ready mixes using only the five plug-ins you really need.

“I’m a singer, songwriter, producer and now after reading this, I’d finally call myself a mix engineer as well. Before reading this I felt like I had a pretty ok understanding of mixing and just needed to fill in the gaps, but after reading this I realized that I didn’t know much at all. I got so much out of this. This is truly a fantastic book for any new, aspiring or even seasoned mix engineers. I’ve always wanted to just sit next to some pro MEs to see how they did it and I finally feel like I had that chance. Every page is filled with great info and at no point did it ever feel like Björgvin was trying to fill pages. Literally, every page and word was extremely helpful. Keep em coming Björgvin. Great Stuff!”

"Spot-on mixing guide that will give you great results in your mix. I use this for myself and with students in the Music Technology A Level and Music Practitioners RSL (like a L3 BTEC) courses I teach. I've found it to be VERY readable, accurate, and easy to follow and apply and my students find it really useful. It is not overly long but is very practical and Bjorgvin clearly knows his stuff. Highly recommended for live and studio mixing of audio on both professional and academic levels."
