This book is designed as an easy-to-read reference for those at an early stage in their careers. For those students or trainee engineers entering music recording, broadcasting or associated industries this book should provide a useful introduction to the principles of sound, perception, audio technology and systems. Key facts are presented in self-contained "fact files". The book covers such subjects as basic acoustics, auditory perception, mixing-console layout and functions, analogue and digital recording, noise reduction, MIDI, timecode, synchronization, microphone principles and loudspeaker systems, and as such it may also be of interest to those professionals already established in audio engineering as a "back-to-basics" reference. This new edition contains additional material on stereo and surround sound.

Ken Pohlmann, AES Journal

'This book will provide a vital source of information for those students or trainee engineers entering music recording.'
Studio Systems

From the Publisher:

Other subjects covered include basic acoustics, auditory perception, mixing console layout and functions, analogue and digital recording, noise reduction, MIDI, timecode, synchronisation, microphone principles and loudspeaker systems.

As well as being an ideal teaching text, professionals already established will find this a useful 'back-to-basics' reference.
