Hello! I'm Caridad Espinosa, a music producer and sound engineer who's really passionate about audio, recording and mixing.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, I started teaching virtual mixing lessons and giving music production masterclasses, but when it came to suggesting "tutorial videos" or "reading material," nothing worked as I expected with my students.
You see, there are a lot of books about mixing, but most of them are WAY TOO TECHNICAL for beginners to understand. Also, so many YouTube tutorials about these topics contradict each other, which can be overwhelming, especially for beginners. Oh, and by the way, after doing some research, I noticed that almost every single Recording or Mixing book was written by a man.
That is when the "MIX LIKE A GIRL" idea popped up: Let's write a book, very simply explained, that contains exercises, tips and "beginner friendly" explanations about recording, mixing, beat making, and mastering. Amazing female engineers will be collaborating in these last few chapters. This will be the first book completely written, edited and designed by women for the express purpose of teaching mixing to audio students.
WE'VE HAD MORE THAN 100 STUDENTS THIS YEAR 2020-2021, EACH DAY MORE WOMEN JOIN THE AUDIO AND ENGINEERING WORLD, AND I'M HERE TO HELP.
