Sound Recording Practice

Synopsis

In this invaluable book, a broad range of contributors--musicians, acousticians, electronic engineers, and broadcasters--share their specialized expertise on the equipment used to record, transmit, and reproduce speech and music and the operational techniques that have evolved over half a century in the sound recording industry. This fourth edition, newly revised and comprehensive, emphasizes the array of new technologies and techniques such as rapid advances in recording techniques, computer-controlled equipment, new digital recording formats, and the proliferation of consumer audio/video media. Addressing the user rather than the designer or manufacturer, Sound Recording Practice offers a stimulating, informative, and comprehensive guide to each aspect of recording.
