      Technique and Applications

      • Overview
      • About the author


      This handbook goes in-depth into all the issues related to microphones and their manifold applications to translate sounds, noises and voices into microphone signals in order to record, measure, transmit, broadcast and process them.

      Microphones are for sound engineers, or more in general for anyone who uses them for work; they are like brushes and a palette for a painter: in a painting as in a sound recording, the level of the outcome depends on their knowledgeable use, as well as on the vision of what you want to represent.

      Microphones have countless applications, so knowing how to choose the most suitable type for each application and being able to use it with skill and creativity on the basis of the context and its technical characteristics are two indispensable tools for anyone focusing their professional activity on sound recording.

      This book is a much sought-after reference book to increase, expand or even just refresh one's knowledge on the subject.
