Written by highly respected author Stanley R. Alten, WORKING WITH AUDIO provides readers with a fundamental understanding of the principles, technology, and techniques of audio production. This book covers the basics of audio production techniques in radio, TV, music, and new media, with special emphasis on the fundamentals of sound and recording, acoustics, equipment, editing, mixing, and much more. Because the material is not medium-specific, readers can apply the techniques learned to sound production in any of the major audio and audio/visual media.

- Each chapter is preceded by an outline of its main headings and concludes with a list of its main points. In addition, the author includes extensive illustrations in each chapter to further reinforce the written information.
- Completely up to date and comprehensive in scope, the book offers step-by-step instruction on everything from the fundamentals of sound to the intricacies of recording and producing in a professional studio setting.
