15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By G. J. Kingsnorth on 11 Nov. 2008
Format: Paperback
I'm a lecturer and film making with some 25 years experience in the industry. In the early days I was a dubbing editor, laying track using 16mm film sep mag tracks. Over the years I wanted to learn more about the sound side of things and simply was not able to find anything substantial. That is until now.

As I am teaching a unit in Audi Production I wanted to have something substantial to back up my limited knowledge of Audio Theory. This book is it. Yes it says 'The Sound Effects Bible' and this is literally what it is, a manual for all things audio. It covers everything from the science of sound, the quality of audio you get from different microphones, assessories, recording devices, building a recording studio and post-production. A section I really enjoyed was 'The Ten Sound Editing Commandments'. It is obvious the depth of knowledge and wealth of experience the author has in a craft he really enjoys.

The chapters are easy to read and treat the reader as an intelligent human being. The diagrams are informative and specific to the task being discussed. I will be recommending the college to get their own copy and only regret I did not have this book three years ago when I was making my own feature film. Well I have it now and see the book as much a tool as my Final Cut Pro, Marantz recorder and Sennheisser microphones.

This is a fantastic read and is clearly a must for any one that has any budding interest in audio/ sound design. The name sound effects bible is slightly misleading as it is not just a book on sound effects (although there is a large portion to do with this subject) it does touch base on a lot of topics such as hardware and software that is used professionally.

I highly recommend this book as its relatively inexpensive, compelling to read and is going to be my 'go to' book for resources in the future - so why not let it be yours too?

This is the first non-fiction book I just sat down and read cover-to-cover. The author's style is honest and engaging - he meets you eye-to-eye rather than taking an aloof position. The book covers the basics of sound theory as well as guiding you through the creation of a plethora of sound effects. Anyone that knows everything in this book will be well established in the sound effects business. For everyone else, I recommend you get this book.

Drawing examples from film but with an eye firmly on the future of multi-media, this book shows you how to record and build sound effects from scratch. Even if you don't intend to make this your career, if you make sound effects for theatre or video you'll find this book very useful, from choosing your equipment to editing your final output. Highly recommended.
