Publisher's Summary

Whether a musician who wants to understand the engineering behind the music, a hobbyist who wants to start recording their songs, a music lover who wants to understand why certain records sound the way they do, an audio engineer who wants to make sure they can nail the basic technicalities of their craft, or simply someone eager to learn the basics of audio engineering, this book is for you.
The book is organized in the most intuitive way possible: you will follow the sound from its creation to its rendering, from the vibrating string to the sound in their ears. Chapter one deals with physical sound and its description in terms of waves. Chapter two explains how the sound is transformed and transported by a series of devices (microphones, cables, amplifiers, etc.) from the analog physical domain to the digital virtual domain. Chapter three describes the basic transformative operations available in the digital domain. Chapter four explains how the sound is transformed back into the analog domain and how we detect it.
With 13 tables, 16 original figures, 13 equations, a glossary, and a complete list of sources, How Audio Works gives you all the tools to understand the basics of audio engineering, and come out more informed and better prepared.
How Audio Works, everything you need to know about audio basics.

May I get my free download back?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the book were longer, more detailed, and ......better?

What could Vincent Musolino have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

elaborate. Audio production can not be covered in 20 pages.

Would you be willing to try another one of Vincent Musolino’s performances?


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

All the above. I am now in therapy. I have made progress. But sessions are expensive.

Any additional comments?

Sadly, if I asked someone to burn this audio book, they would most likely present it to me on a CDR.
