Sound Engineering Explained Summary

Sound Engineering Explained by Michael Talbot-Smith

This straightforward introduction to audio techniques guides the beginner through principles such as sound waves and basic acoustics and offers practical advice for using recording and reproduction equipment. Previously known as Audio Explained, this latest edition includes new material on: reverberation and its use in recording; principles of digital mixing; digital recording; including MiniDisc and MP3; digital artificial reverberation.

Designed with the student in mind, information is organised according to level of difficulty. An understanding of the basic principles is essential to anyone wishing to make successful recordings and so chapters are split into two parts: the first introducing the basic theories in a non-technical way; the second dealing with the subject in more depth. Key facts are clearly identified in separate boxes and further information for the more advanced reader is indicated in shaded boxes. In addition, questions are provided (with answers supplied at the end of the book) as a teaching and learning aid.

Sound Engineering Explained is ideal for both serious audio amateurs any student studying audio for the first time, in particular those preparing for Part One exams of the City & Guilds Sound Engineering (1820) course.

Sound Engineering Explained Reviews

In all, the book promotes a good understanding of the principles and precesses involved with recording or reproducing audio, in a well written manner by an author who has obviously trodden the road many times.

Reviews of the previous edition:

'...a light, informative and well-crafted book.'
A teacher of sound recording

'This is one of those books that tells you a little more than you thought you knew, even if you thought you knew quite a bit! There are also some good sections where the author politely and effectively debunks possible preconceptions that readers might have...Recommended.'
Journal of Educational Media, 1999
