Description

The sound recording industry encompasses musicians, acousticians, electronic engineers, and broadcasters. A full understanding of the specialized equipment used to record, transmit, and reproduce speech and music and the operational techniques which have been evolved over half a century can be achieved only in the present type of multiple-author handbook. Addressing the user rather than the designer or manufacturer, the specialist authors here explain and describe their own approach to one particular part of the industry. In sum, therefore, the book provides a comprehensive guide to each link in the recording chain which students, practitioners, and new entrants to the world of recording will find informative. This third edition has a fresh set of authors and a special emphasis on the numerous new technologies and techniques resulting from such developments as digital recording, compact discs, and video. Readership: anyone professionally concerned with the sound recording industry.show more
