In Introduction to Audio Production Peter Utz presents a concise overview of audio production, as well as how to set up and use the most common types of audio equipment to make and play back recordings. Utz leads the reader step-by-step through the process of selecting microphones, positioning them to receive the clearest sound, then connecting them properly to mixers and amplifiers. Digital and analog audio recording techniques are taught, along with methods of mixing, manipulating, editing and “sweetening” the sound as well as copying it for distribution on tape, compact discs, and other media. Practical skills, useful in the studio or in field production, are emphasized, such as when to use certain types of cables, connectors, inputs, and outputs. This book is an essential guide to anyone working in the field.
