CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Audio, in all its forms, is a combination of aesthetics and technology. An
audio engineer without any sense of aesthetics could successfully run current
through a console, but would be unable to judge if the resulting sounds were
effective for the application. Similarly, someone with a well-developed
aesthetic sense who possesses no technical knowledge would fall short trying to
make great audio, since he would have an idea in mind but be unable to execute
it. Shaping Sound in the Studio and Beyond takes a unique approach to teaching
audio by presenting both the aesthetic and technology elements of recording
audio in one text-- it helps you understand the technology while helping you
train your standards of what good sound really is. No other book on the market
takes this unique and comprehensive view to teach audio production. Topics
covered include basic audio theory, microphones, speakers, amps, digital audio,
MIDI, audio editing, signal processing, mixing, sound design, and much more.
There's also a chapter that defines recording industry jobs available and
offers helpful tips about how to get them and keep them. Exercises at the end
of each chapter help reinforce the concepts learned. This is an ideal
introduction to studio recording and audio production for anyone interested in
pursuing these careers, as well as for home recordists and practicing audio
engineers and musicians who want to make the most out of their equipment, or
improve their communication skills in the studio.
