Overview


How to choose and use microphones was once a skill passed down from senior sound engineers to their assistants as they would listen and learn by observation. Today, few large studios have assistant engineers, and an overwhelming number of studios are operated by their owners who are self-taught and do not have the benefit of the "big studio" tutelage. Getting Great Sounds: The Microphone Book imparts these microphone tips and tricks of the pros to make them available to any sound engineer or home studio enthusiast. It explains all aspects of all kinds of microphones, how they work, and how to use them in session recording. The conversational narrative style presents technical aspects in an easy-to-understand, humorous fashion, based on the real-life experiences of its author, a well-known recording engineer.
