Sound recording practice: a handbook
Oxford University Press, 1980 - Antiques & Collectibles - 503 pages
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 acentury 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 consumeraudio/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.
