Master Handbook of Acoustics
The goal of this book is to apply the principles of acoustics to the audio arts. This involves serving as an interpreter of major trends and the literature for students and practitioners in the audio field. Along with covering the more theoretical aspects of acoustics, the book applies the theory to the design of specialized audio spaces such as the home listening room, the control room, and the multi-track-recording studio.

Master Handbook of Audio Production
An in-depth "how-to" covering the full range of modern audio techniques, from digital sound recording in the studio to sound for digital video and film, this guide details essential equipment, recording methods, and digital signal processing techniques.
The Sound Reinforcement Handbook
(Yamaha Products). Sound reinforcement is the use of audio amplification systems. This book is the first and only book of its kind to cover all aspects of designing and using such systems for public address and musical performance. The book features information on both the audio theory involved and the practical applications of that theory, explaining everything from microphones to loudspeakers. This revised edition features almost 40 new pages and is even easier to follow with the addition of an index and a simplified page and chapter numbering system. New topics covered include: MIDI, Synchronization, and an Appendix on Logarithms. 416 Pages.
Handbook of Environmental Acoustics
Because environmental acoustics has a complex mathematical basis, it is often difficult to determine whether acoustical recommendations are valid. Handbook of Environmental Acoustics simplifies this decision–making process and provides easy–to–follow explanations of acoustic terminology, noise control design, and regulatory noise issues. The book clarifies key aspects of environmental noise in basic language, covering: ∗ Common noise sources––including the risk of exposure to common daily environmental noise sources ∗ Current noise regulations, guidelines, and standards––illustrating all key points ∗ Acoustic terminology and environmental noise descriptors––providing a foundation for understanding noise issues ∗ Effects of noise on people and animals––emphasizing the importance of restricting noise exposure ∗ Relevant noise rating methods––clarifiying the use of noise metrics ∗ Construction and building code requirements––explaining current requirements and featuring tips on how to avoid privacy problems ∗ Measurement considerations––demonstrating standard methods and offering practical advice on how to ensure proper measurement procedures ∗ Noise control designs––detailing source–path–receiver systems and noise control fundamentals In addition to traditional noise control methods, new areas, such as active noise control, sound intensity measurement, and diffusive designs, are explained. A sample municipal noise ordinance helps the user to draft an ordinance tailored to the needs of a particular community. Avoiding complex mathematics and analyses, Handbook of Environmental Acoustics is a user–friendly manual for urban planners, municipal officials, engineers, attorneys, industrial hygienists, architects, environmental professionals, and students in these fields.
Architectural Acoustics, Second Edition presents a thorough technical overview of the discipline, from basic concepts to specific design advice. Beginning with a brief history, it reviews the fundamentals of acoustics, human perception and reaction to sound, acoustic noise measurements, noise metrics, and environmental noise characterization. In-depth treatment is given to the theoretical principles and practical applications of wave acoustics, sound transmission, vibration and vibration isolation, and noise transmission in floors and mechanical systems. Chapters on specific design problems demonstrate how to apply the theory, including treatment of multifamily dwellings, office buildings, rooms for speech, rooms for music, multipurpose rooms, auditoriums, sanctuaries, studios, listening rooms, and the design of sound reinforcement systems. Detailed figures illustrate the practical applications of acoustic principles, showing how to implement design ideas in actual structures. This compendium of theoretical and practical design information brings the relevant concepts, equations, techniques, and specific design problems together in one place, including both fundamentals and more advanced material. Practicing engineers will find it an invaluable reference for their daily work, while advanced students will appreciate its rigorous treatment of the basic building blocks of acoustical theory.
