ISBN: 9781136119897
Release Date: 2012-09-10
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Explores the principles and practical considerations of spatial sound recording and reproduction. Particular emphasis is given to the increasing importance of multichannel surround sound and 3D audio, including binaural approaches, without ignoring conventional stereo. The enhancement of spatial quality is arguably the only remaining hurdle to be overcome in pursuit of high quality sound reproduction. The rise of increasingly sophisticated spatial sound systems presents an enormous challenge to audio engineers, many of whom are confused by the possibilities and unfamiliar with standards, formats, track allocations, monitoring configurations and recording techniques. The author provides a comprehensive study of the current state of the art in spatial audio, concentrating on the most widely used approaches and configurations. Anyone wishing to expand their understanding of these cutting-edge technologies will want to own this book.

Release Date: 2005
Genre: Music

(Berklee Guide). Understanding Audio explores the fundamentals of audio and acoustics that impact every stage of the music recording process. Whether you are a musician setting up your first Pro Tools project studio, or you are a seasoned recording engineer or producer eager to find a reference that fills in the gaps in your understanding of audio, this book is for you. Understanding Audio will enable you to develop a thorough understanding of the underlying principles of sound, and take some of the mystery and guesswork out of how equipment setup affects the quality of your recordings. Projects at the end of each chapter will assist you in applying these principles to your own recording environment. Learn about: *Basic and Advanced audio theory *Cables and studio wiring *Recording studio and console signal flow *Digital and analog audio *Studio and listening room acoustics *Psychoacoustics *"In the Studio" insights, relating audio principles to real recording situations About the Author Daniel M. Thompson is Assistant Chair of Music Production and Engineering at Berklee College of Music. An independent writer/producer and recording engineer, his credits include work for major films and television including ER and The Sopranos. He is a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), the Audio Engineering Society (AES), and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). BUZZ "This is probably the best primer on recording fundamentals and techniques that I've ever read. I wish I had a book that was this comprehensive when I started my career. It's simple and easy to understand, and the diagrams are perfect. From basic audio principles to current digital technology, this book has something to offer everybody in the industry. This book should be a requirement for every entry-level engineering student." -Elliot Scheiner, Multi-Grammy-winning engineer and producer (Steely Dan, The Eagles, Sting) "A must for the musician/producer with a home studio. One of the best 'how-to' books available to help put you on the path toward fulfilling your career goals." -Don Puluse, Recording engineer (Chicago, Sly & the Family Stone, Billy Joel) "Presents clear explanations of technical audio topics ranging from microphones to loudspeakers. It concisely delivers the goods that you will need to make better audio recordings. Be sure to thank Thompson when you pick up your Grammy." -Ken Pohlmann, Author, Director of Music Engineering Technology, University of Miami-Florida
