Master Handbook of Acoustics
The “bible” of acoustics now completely revised and updated for a new generation of audiophiles
The first four editions of this classic guide were written by the late F. Alton Everest, for many years the leading authority on acoustical principles. Now updated by another sound guru, Ken Pohlmann, the Fifth Edition of Master Handbook of Acoustics shows you how to achieve professional recording results at home, build an audio/video tech room for cutting-edge voice-over recording, control reverberation, interference, noise distortion in the air, and more.
You will find new information on hardware and software tools for performing acoustic measurements, subjective perception of acoustic space, noise control techniques, absorption measurements, and room impulse response measurements. The Fifth Edition also explores room design for surround-sound playback and professional studios, concert hall and auditorium acoustics, and room acoustics measurement and modeling software.
