    99 Reasons to Read Audio Engineering 101, February 20, 2012 By the title, Audio Engineering 101, you know that Timothy A. Dittmar's book is going to cover that basics of Audio Engineering. Anytime you see that 101, as any community college student knows, you know it is going to be a rudimentary primer. Kind of Audio Engineering for Dummies. Some of the stuff is pretty basic, and I just kind of skimmed over it. Advice for interns, like not to tell clients how awful they sound, and don't sit around 99 Reasons to Read Audio Engineering 101, February 20, 2012 By the title, Audio Engineering 101, you know that Timothy A. Dittmar's book is going to cover that basics of Audio Engineering. Anytime you see that 101, as any community college student knows, you know it is going to be a rudimentary primer. Kind of Audio Engineering for Dummies. Some of the stuff is pretty basic, and I just kind of skimmed over it. Advice for interns, like not to tell clients how awful they sound, and don't sit around texting while rolling your eyes, etc., etc., etc.. But there is a lot of practical information and explanation of audio concepts like compression, noise gates, EQ, phlanging, and phase. I really like the microphone guide which shows various types and brands of microphones along with graphs of frequency response: Cascade Fat Head, Small-Diaphragm Condenser, Neumann U 87, or the ubiquitous Shure SM58. One chapter is a round table where questions are posed to a group of recording engineers like, what mic would you take with you on a desert island? There is a website where you can go and download audio clips that illustrate the concepts being discussed. All in all, this is a handy book with a lot of good information that would be of interest to anyone interested in home recording or a career in audio engineering.

    I got this to help me better understand my new audio equipment for my podcast and online courses. Definitely focuses more on audio for bands but great background on how sound works and terminology. If you're looking for a step by step guide on setting up your equipment this ain't it, but you should read it if you actually want to understand everything (which you should).

    3 stars. I'm sure this is a great book for music production, but I'm a podcaster trying to figure out a 5 mic panel recorded live. It was nearly useless outside of some mic placement tips when we didn't have 5 mics for the group. There's very little information about vocal equipment, and most of the book was about setting up instruments. If you're recording podcasts or solo vocals, it's not so helpful. 3 stars.

    Great book for building a strong foundation This book is great for understanding the basics and building the foundation that you need to excel as an audio engineer. Allows for a good base to be built upon and allows any young engineer to know what they need to improve on.

    So back in 2008 I was leaving high school and bought a blue yeti with a simple mixer. I wasn't particularly great at recording my voice. I used freeware stuff to equalize my voice and it sounded a hell of a lot better than others I heard speaking over the voips we used back then. In 2019 I'm looking at getting back into using a dynamic microphone to record my voice and using hardware this time to make my voice sound good before it hits the computer.

I used freeware stuff to equalize my voice and it sounded a hell of a lot better than others I heard speaking over the voips we used back then. In 2019 I'm looking at getting back into using a dynamic microphone to record my voice and using hardware this time to make my voice sound good before it hits the computer. I have some friends who record audiobooks for archive.org and I'm looking at doing that as well. Along with streaming on twitch. Due to slow internet speeds the best way to stand out is still having good audio as a huge number of users are still on their phone. This book reads a lot like a o'reilly book but for audio engineering. Clearly Tim is well seasoned audio engineer because he manages to pack 4 to 5 explanations of each concept in bit sized chunks on a single paragraph ranging from actual engineering concepts to more heady feel based arguments that clearly proliferate the profession. I could have used an entire book on chapter 5 the microphone guide.

    It`s good book to get a basic knowledge in audio engineering and also not bad resource of info about microphones. It`s good book to get a basic knowledge in audio engineering and also not bad resource of info about microphones.
