Handbook for Sound Technicians by F.P. Zantis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A sound technician has to be a jack of all trades. He/she requires not only a thorough knowledge of recording and playback equipment and electro-acoustics, but also has to have good practical experience of electronics to be able to locate faults and, if at all possible, repair these in situ. Also, he/she must have reasonable knowledge of music and musical instruments to be able to make recordings of a variety of such instruments. In brief, a sound technician is a person who can render a live musical performance into a real treat, and is at the same time fully au fait with what goes on in the recording studio. This book contains chapters on basic theory; microphones and musical instruments; various types of amplifier; loudspeakers; effects equipment; recording techniques; lighting equipment; the rehearsal room; and faultfinding and small repairs. It also contains a useful glossary of terms used in sound engineering and a list of adjectives describing sound colouring.
