About the Author

Scott Hunter Stark has been involved in professional audio since the late 1970's. He started out designing custom loudspeaker systems and operating systems for live performances at a time when then-existing commercial systems could not live up to the demands of increasingly larger audiences with increasingly discerning ears. In the 1980's and 90's he was active in providing audio, staging and lighting services to a wide variety of performance events in clubs, theaters, outdoor events and more recently houses of worship in the eastern United States. Throughout his career Stark found a repeated need for presenting plain-English explanations of how sound systems worked, particularly for aspiring engineers struggling with important concepts of physics and sound properties. He translated his years of working experience and knowledge into print with the first edition of Live Sound Reinforcement, later released in 1996 by MixBooks. After years of working in the sound system and engineering business, Stark attended law school and worked with several Internet ventures. Today he is a sound system consultant in the Washington, DC area where he currently resides.

Are you tired of having to constantly rely on the 'not so sure' reccomendations of others? Are you taking a chance on the information you obtained from others? Would you like to be independent from always having to contact engineers for the last minute question you forgot to ask? Well now you can feel confident in yourself! This book has helped me in more ways than you can imagine, and I only thought that I knew about sound reinforcement till I read this wonderful book. Now, I feel that confidence that the pros have! This book contains information on almost every aspect of sound reinforcement available on the market. This book is not only great for the beginner trying to teach themself, but is phanominal to the pro also. I've been in and around all levels of the music field and never have i come across such a wealth of information that this publication has given me! Just give it a try and I know you wont't be sorry that you did. From the fundamentals and theorys of sound waves, to the finished products. From the proper speaker placements, to the placement of microphones. This book explains everything about Sound Reinforcement! I bought a copy, read it, showed it to my friends in music, and now all of them are buying their own copies of this book. Buying this book was the best investment that I could have made. For those people out there who think that they know everything about sound? Well, now you can know everything simply by obtaining your personal copy for on the road, or at home. Give it a try and I know that you wont be disappointed!
