Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Audio Expert is a comprehensive reference that covers all aspects of audio, with many practical, as well as theoretical, explanations. Providing in-depth descriptions of how audio really works, using common sense plain-English explanations and mechanical analogies with minimal math, the book is written for people who want to understand audio at the deepest, most technical level, without needing an engineering degree. It's presented in an easy-to-read, conversational tone, and includes more than 400 figures and photos augmenting the text.

The Audio Expert takes the intermediate to advanced recording engineer or audiophile and makes you an expert. The book goes far beyond merely explaining how audio works. It brings together the concepts of audio, aural perception, musical instrument physics, acoustics, and basic electronics, showing how they're intimately related. Describing in great detail many of the practices and techniques used by recording and mixing engineers, the topics include video production and computers. Rather than merely showing how to use audio devices such as equalizers and compressors, Ethan Winer explains how they work internally, and how they are spec'd and tested.

Most explanations are platform-agnostic, applying equally to Windows and Mac operating systems, and to most software and hardware. TheAudioExpertbook.com, the companion website, has audio and video examples to better present complex topics such as vibration and resonance. There are also videos demonstrating editing techniques and audio processing, as well as interviews with skilled musicians demonstrating their instruments and playing techniques.

* Explains clearly the innermost details of audio hardware and software * Contains numerous practical tips, tricks, advice, and lots of myth-busting * Provides videos and audio examples on the companion website for comprehensive understanding

Synopsis:

The Audio Expert provides you with more that an introduction to audio and sound recording, explaining how audio really works. Using clear, jargon-free language and practical explanations Winer walks you through the advanced concepts of audio that apply to all past, current, and future technology. Delving into all aspects of audio theory, including electronic components and circuits, signal flow, digital audio theory, room acoustics, and product testing methods. Dispelling the many widespread audio myths and explaining what really matters, you ll understand how audio gear works internally as well as how to use it. Packed full with a ton of valuable tips, tricks and advice virtually every page reveals a nugget of must know information. The book s website includes audio and video examples for many of the explanations offered in the text, showing how various audio tools are used. If you ve never used professional recording software, you ll get to see compressors and equalizers and other common processing devices, and hear what they do. When Winer talks about mechanical and electrical resonance, you can play that video to better appreciate why resonance is such an important concept in audio.

* Explains clearly the innermost details of audio hardware and software * Numerous practical tips, tricks, advice, and lots of myth-busting * Videos and audio examples teach not just what and how, but also why
