For live sound engineers, this book is an invaluable resource in the path to career development. This edition builds upon the clear writing and comprehensive illustrations of the previous edition to explain the fundamental concepts of acoustics and the operating principles of all the key components of a live sound reinforcement system. Using easy to understand language, the design and implementation of the live sound system is covered in detail. Extended coverage is given to the use of digital networks and digital audio distribution in the live sound arena, and thorough guidance is given in the practical aspects of executing and managing a live sound session from the engineer's perspective.
Creating a solid foundation upon which to build a career is a crucial step in ensuring future success. The practical information surrounding the concepts, implementation, and practices central to live sound reinforcement presented in this book will help you build that foundation. ©2020, 384 pages
