Education Guide

Mix is gearing up to present its longstanding annual Audio Education Guide in its November 2014 issue. Want to have your school listed in the directory, or do you need to update your current directory listing? Add an image, program description, or a logo to your listing! Get your school in the Mix Education Guide 2014.

At the heart of Mix celebrating our 30th anniversary is this "30 People Who Shaped Sound," which showcases some of the most creative and influential people who have shaped recording during our 30-year history. We agonized for months about this list, tossing hundreds of names back and forth until we finally settled on the august group of producers, engineers and musicians you'll find here. No doubt there will be many disagreements about whom we've included and excluded. Feel free to register your opinions and offer your own choices by e-mailing us at mixeditorial@mixonline.com.
