Product description

From the Back Cover

Musicians of all genres and standards, students, home hobbyists and computer users interested in how to use the music and internet facilities on their machine.
-- stylish counter pack is available
-- advertising campaign to run in specialist press
-- special promotions will run in general music press

Contemporary music relies on technology: technology is used to make music, to record music, to hear music. Music students study technology and technology has enabled more amateur musicians than ever before to create their own recordings. But what if you are a competent musician who simply doesn't understand the technology: its processes like 'tracking', 'sequencing' and 'non-linear recording' or its facilities such as 'foldback' and 'encoding'? Paul White's new series of pocket sized guides to music technology explains everything you need to know for a basic understanding of music technology. Written in the simplest language, he makes the subject easy for all to understand, whatever their age or background.

Talent is important, But sound quality matters too. How many bands have you heard whose performances have been ruined by poor sound? But the quality of sound is not simply dictated by the equipment used, but by the way that equipment is set up. This book looks at the techniques professionals use to get a great on-stage sound and applies them to the working musician whose equipment, though relatively inexpensive, can produce exceptionally good results if used properly. If you perform live or intend to, this book will prove essential.

I bought this as an Amazon recommendation as I had to learn how to operate a new live (church) PA system (lots of vocals, guitars, keyboard, drums, etc., and a very mixed "audience"). It has both encouraged me and challenged me, and certainly resulted in a better first attempt to use the new system. Well written, easy to understand for the non-technical, and probably more in it than my initial needs. Other books in the series have helped as well. A great investment - inexpensive and comprehensive.

I lead a sound team at my church (His People) in London. This book has been an excellent reference to brush up my knowledge again. Some very good theory and practical tips on mic setup etc.
It is a very good pocket reference for a whole range of things (cable connections, typical frequencies etc.)

This is literally a 'pocket' book and as such is very useful to carry about or leave in the car etc and provides a good 'on the hoof' reference source. At the back, there's a glossary of terminology which I found useful when listening to 'experts'. The sections within the book are well organised and go into sufficient depth to provide a basic understanding of the subject accompanied by nice simple diagrams where necessary for clarity (no pun intended!)I read this volume cover to cover in a couple of hours and like to feel that all the information was digested, time will tell! On a practical level I'm more confident in setting up my system and of matching components correctly to avoid potential damage or disharmony. I recommend this book to anyone needing a stable grounding in this subject.

I bought this together with a larger volume, (The Ultimate Sound Operators Handbook), which I will review later.

This is an ideal book for someone who knows someone nothing or very little about live sound reinforcement. If however, like myself, you already know a reasonable amount and you want to delve deeper or consolidate on theory you might find this a bit too basic.

Having said that, the book is well laid out in a sensible order and is a handy quick reference - particularly the section on wiring practices.

Even though it says basic, the book does cover many aspects of working in the live sound environment, even for me who has been working as sound engineer foe many years, this book serves as a quick referencing guide, where other books would be bulky to have with you all the time. Dont expect to be a master of live sound after reading this book, however it will give you a very good start on working in the area.
