Providing vital reading for audio students and trainee engineers, this guide is ideal for anyone who wants a solid grounding in both theory and industry practices in audio, sound and recording. There are many books on the market covering "how to work it" when it comes to audio equipment-but Sound and Recording isn't one of them. Instead, you'll gain an understanding of "how it works" with this approachable guide to audio systems.

Digital audio section revised substantially to include the latest developments in audio networking (e.g. RAVENNA, AES X-192, AVB), high-resolution surround and parametric audio coding, workstation processing technology, mastering for iTunes, and loudness normalization
Coverage of immersive audio systems such as Dolby Atmos, Auro 3D and WFS along with recent developments in audio object coding
Sections on digital radio microphones, loudspeaker sensitivity issues and development, and highly directional loudspeaker systems

"When a technical book is republished in a second or third edition, you know it's become recognised as a reference work, but when it reaches a seventh edition, I think it's legitimate to suggest that it has become something of a 'bible'! ...If you want just one reference book on audio, this one is hard to beat."
-Hugh Robjohn, Sound On Sound Magazine
"Sound and Recording: Applications and Theory, 7th Edition, is a comprehensive authoritative work, and it belongs on the reference shelf of every conscientious audio professional. I highly recommend it."
- Alan Hardiman, Professional Sound
