Pearson Education 9780134335094 overview

  • 1Description

The Acoustic Musician's Guide to Sound Reinforcement and Live Recordings was created as an introduction to Music Business, Audio Technology, Music Technology, Recording, and Sound Reinforcement courses at the undergraduate level. This text offers down-to-earth guidance on how to set-up the stage for acoustic acts, including selection and stage placement of speakers, amplifiers, microphones, and pick-ups. It also discusses how bands can work successfully with a sound engineer, and set up effective sound system components.

Readers will learn how they can buy the equipment that will enable them to accomplish their goals by distinguishing between advertising hype and pragmatic functions. Learn how to choose the venue, how to purchase equipment, how to rent field recording services, and how to hook all the components together correctly, as well as set up the 'mix' for the musicians on stage and the audience.

Written by a musician and engineer with 25 years experience in performance, recording, and sound reinforcement, it seeks to correct common misinformation about sound systems components, and is the only book of its kind to date which combines sound reinforcement and live recording techniques.

Mike Sokol is founder and owner of JMS Productions, a leading provider of high-quality sound reinforcement and live recording services. Being the house sound engineer for the Mountain Green Concerts at the Kepler Auditorium in Hagerstown, Maryland, he has published extensively in Electronic Musician, EQ, Computer Video and other magazines.
