"The Science of Sound Recording is more than a standard introduction. This is the book that tackles the seemingly elusive technical aspects of sound and recording, which often appear overwhelming to anyone without an extensive electrical engineering or physics background. Using clearly crafted explanations of scientific principles, helpful illustrations, and thoroughly explained "worked through" equations, this book helps you build a solid foundation, allowing you to set your studio work apart and put the theory behind sound recording practices to practical, daily use. With The Science of Sound Recording, you'll: Find out how science can be used to determine mixing techniques; Explore up-to-date digital and analog recording theories; Delve into physical principles of mechanics and their significant impact on acoustics; and Understand fundamental concepts of measurement and how they relate to sound recording." -- Publisher's description.
