Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Audio Expert is a comprehensive reference that covers all aspects of audio, with many practical, as well as theoretical, explanations. Providing in-depth descriptions of how audio really works, using common sense plain-English explanations and mechanical analogies with minimal math, the book is written for people who want to understand audio at the deepest, most technical level, without needing an engineering degree. It's presented in an easy-to-read, conversational tone, and includes more than 400 figures and photos augmenting the text.

The Audio Expert takes the intermediate to advanced recording engineer or audiophile and makes you an expert. The book goes far beyond merely explaining how audio "works." It brings together the concepts of audio, aural perception, musical instrument physics, acoustics, and basic electronics, showing how they're intimately related. Describing in great detail many of the practices and techniques used by recording and mixing engineers, the topics include video production and computers. Rather than merely showing how to use audio devices such as equalizers and compressors, Ethan Winer explains how they work internally, and how they are spec'd and tested.

Most explanations are platform-agnostic, applying equally to Windows and Mac operating systems, and to most software and hardware. TheAudioExpertbook.com, the companion website, has audio and video examples to better present complex topics such as vibration and resonance. There are also videos demonstrating editing techniques and audio processing, as well as interviews with skilled musicians demonstrating their instruments and playing techniques.

Biographie de l'auteur

Ethan has, at various times,worked as a studio musician, computer programmer, circuit designer, recording engineer, composer/arranger, technical writer, and college instructor. He's had nearly 100 feature articles published in audio and computer magazines including Mix, PC Magazine, Electronic Musician, EQ Magazine, Audio Media, Sound on Sound, Keyboard, Pro Sound News, and Recording. .
In 2002 he started the company RealTraps to manufacture bass traps and other acoustic treatment, which he continues to this day.

C'est LE livre sur le domaine audio au sens large. Ethan Winer est connu comme étant un excellent musicien, ingénieur hors pair et un ''mythbuster'' imparable. Tout ce qui peut intéresser un musicien, audiophile ou ingénieur du son y est abordé. Le livre est très intelligemment construit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great book 18 novembre 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The introduction says "This book is for everyone who wants to truly understand audio but prefers practical rather than theoretical explanations" and also that it's for people who've been around audio for awhile and want to know how it really works. That's me, and it met my needs perfectly. However it would not be appropriate for those who don't already have a sense of what decibels are and how electronic gear works or who are not technically inclined because the whole books is about the science, engineering and art of audio equipment and its use. It's friendly and approachable, simplified without being dumbed down, but it's still a technical book.

This book is written in a very straightforward, plain language manner. Moving logically from one topic to another and treating each in detail without being either dry nor falsely humorous. I got the impression that Ethan is a friendly, straightforward, knowledgeable and no-nonsense guy. He's honest in his mention of areas where there is controversy in the industry (e.g. are oxygen-free copper cables better?), unapologetic about his opinions (no!) and rational in supporting them (because you can't measure any difference). He's also really good at explaining what really matters (e.g. without proper treatment the acoustics of your listening room make even the best speakers sound bad, and even the best speakers have far more distortion than any competent, inexpensive amp) -- and again he explains why in ways that make sense.

I bought the book primarily for the material in three of its 23 chapters and ended up reading eight because I enjoyed it so much. There are other chapters I'm holding in reserve until I get to those points in my audio journey.

Thank you Ethan for sharing your knowledge so generously and writing such an approachable book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not Quite 11 octobre 2012
Par Dennis Zasnicoff - Publié sur Amazon.com

For a title like that I would expect more. Not to mention it's really expensive, even in the Kindle format. Many great readings on the subject are much more affordable.

The author is definitely knowledgeable and is successful explaining a lot of audio concepts and techniques, but his authority is compromised when you find some fundamentally wrong information, such as the difference between +4dBu and -10dBV - which is NOT 14dB.

Maybe it's irrelevant as an isolated piece of info, but that certainly touches the "expert" and "trust" side of the book. I found some chapters to be really shallow. The "pan law" paragraphs are a good example of a confusing text, perhaps exposing not the best areas of expertise of the author.

Looks like the book is trying to touch every single aspect of audio (and even video production) to get more authority. It would be better if edited, perhaps to half the content, twice the depth. I would have focused on advanced topics only.

This is not a intermediate/advanced book as proposed somewhere. This is more of a beginners/intermediate reading, illustrating things like how to manage tracks in a DAW.

I particularly don't enjoy the defensive tone all over as if trying to prove everyone else wrong.

I value the hard work and intentions, but I would wait until the price is down.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sure to become a standard 22 avril 2012

This is an excellent book book for three main reasons: (1) Mr Winer can comment convincingly on all aspects of musical reproduction (performance, recording, and playback); (2) the nice balance that the book places on breadth and depth; and (3) the book is approachable by many (I daresay it's an enjoyable read).

Many in the industry know Ethan Winer from his substantial web presence, both on his own sites and on the audio forums. Many also know him as the CEO of RealTraps, a leader in the field of acoustic treatments. And a lot of folks know him for his critiques of audiophile fetishes and "golden ear" listening abilities. Far fewer know him as a cellist. But anyone looking at his body of work in the audio field would surely acknowledge his expertise, passion, and experience. And his contributions.

As to the book itself, I think that if you review its table of contents and a few sample pages you can readily decide if it's for you. Said another way, all the topics represented in the Contents are delivered at moderate depth and equal authority. There are neither weak sections nor seminal treatises - this book can be a primer and/or encyclopedia depending on your needs.

I approached it as an audiophile and home theater owner (who is in the process of a DIY treatment of my listening room). I own many great books in the category (e.g., Toole). For me, AUDIO EXPERT was a welcome addition to this fine little library.

Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The truth!!!! 27 septembre 2012
Par SoundGuy - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a fantastic foundation in audio concepts and practices. I am a professional audio engineer, and have been for 12 years. I found something new and helpful in every single chapter. After following Ethan's advice, my home studio has NEVER sounded better. I LOVE all the myths he debunks, as well. Thanks again for telling the truth!!

Par M X M - Publié sur Amazon.com

A few years ago, I ordered and viewed a DVD on the subject of recording by Ethan Winer. It had a LOT of information, but Winer proved he had a talent for making the complex understandable without "dumbing down" the content. He has proved that talent once again with his new book, The Audio Expert. This is an exhaustive look at every facet of audio, that somehow manages to remain digestible, and even entertaining, to anyone interested in sound. Winer uses only as much jargon and acronyms as is mandated, and does a great job of not losing the point in the verbiage, or in pages of mind numbing math. I also like that although the book is huge, it can be approached piecemeal by reading individual chapters in any order that appeals to you. It has been said that the test of whether you know a subject is if you can teach it to someone else. Ethan Winer easily passes that test. Oh, yeah... the drawings are excellent as well.
