Written by highly respected author Stan Alten, AUDIO BASICS provides readers with a fundamental understanding of the principles, technology, and techniques of audio production. Because the material is not medium-specific, readers can apply techniques to sound production in any of the major audio and audio/visual media
- Content is generic to facilitate a general understanding of sound production and to better complement the “basics” concept of the book.
- Chapters are organized for use selectively, in or out of sequence, with no disruption in continuity.
- Each chapter is preceded by an outline of its main headings and concluded with a list of its main points.
- Key terms are identified in bold italic and defined in the Glossary.
- A bulleted list of main points appears at the end of each chapter, helping students review and refresh their memory of key chapter topics and points.
- More than two hundred and forty illustrations visually reinforce principles, technical concepts, and production techniques.
