This book is designed to introduce musicians to concepts, techniques, and tools in the fields of audio, video, and multimedia recording. It includes everything from basic electronic theory to practical lessons on soldering. “Even if you never open up a piece of gear, an understanding of the concepts of electronics will add to your ability as an audio professional,” says the book’s author Alden Hackmann. “This book will be extremely helpful when troubleshooting gear, such as bad cables, faulty microphones, malfunctioning preamps, consoles with bad power supplies, speakers with intermittent output, and other issues.” An accompanying DVD contains lecturers and illustrations that support and reinforce the concepts in the book.
