Product Description

Book Description

The goal of this book is to apply the principles of acoustics to the audio arts. This involves serving as an interpreter of major trends and the literature for students and practitioners in the audio field. Along with covering the more theoretical aspects of acoustics, the book applies the theory to the design of specialized audio spaces such as the home listening room, the control room, and the multi-track-recording studio. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

*2 complete chapters on acoustical software solutions

*Full chapter on acoustical measurements and calculations
*Added guidance on small recording and voice-over studios

No one can touch the Master ...No other book even comes close to legendary acoustical scientist F. Alton Everest's Master Handbook of Acoustics for a friendly, practice-oriented tour of acoustical principles. This readable yet authoritative guide tenderizes a tough subject so that audio buffs can apply leading-edge acoustical thought and design in their own home recording studios and listening rooms.Keeping his target audience of hobbyists, electronics enthusiasts, and audiophiles always in mind, the author makes the science of sound interesting and understandable. Only someone who understands acoustics as well as Everest – Senior Member of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, the Acoustical Society of America, and the IEEE -- could explain these principles so simply, informally, and with such relevance to home projects.

Short on mathematical derivations and long on easy-reading translations of difficult technical subjects, F. Alton Everest's Master Handbook of Acoustics is a rewarding piece of prose that can help you elevate any audio project to a higher standard. An inexhaustible source of ideas, inspiration, and techniques, it's a classic work that every audiophile wants to own. This book is a true keeper.

TURN SCIENCE INTO ART
For the ultimate in custom sound

For those who love electronics and high-end listening and recording, this book is the key to the kingdom, unlocking the theory that lets you:
*Achieve professional recording results at home
*Customize the perfect listening chamber
*Build an audio/video tech room for state-of-the-art voice-over recording
*Create "quiet air" in your home recording studio
*Modify sound with adjustable acoustics
*Control reverberation, interference, and just plain noiseControl distortion in the air medium itself

Format: Paperback
This book has prooved an excellent guide to help me understand diffusion, diffraction, modal ringing, everything you can think of regarding acoustics is in here. I've learned a great deal about modal ringing and how to create effective bass trapping for my recording studio, it even tells you how to build a diffuser! (if you have the DIY skills). Before reading this book I knew virtually nothing about acoustics, this has given me a solid understanding of the most important aspects, can't fault it at all, it does exactly what it says!

A very detailed book for acoustics. If you are studying acoustics or on a music course and want/need to know acoustics then this will cover everything you need. Some of it is daunting but thats maths and physics for you!
