EBOOK - Audio Engineer's Reference Book 2nd edition (Michael Talbot - Smith)

EBOOK - Kỹ thuật âm thanh - Tác giả: Michael Talbot - Smith (673 Trang).

The function of a reference book is not always easy to define. My view is that it should be able to provide relatively brief but accurate accounts of a variety of topics under a general heading – in this case audio engineering. Also the assumption has to be made that the reader already knows something of the subject.
If not then he or she should instead be looking for a textbook. Furthermore, a reference book should, I feel, be as readable as possible. The last requirement seems to me to be very important. The reader that I have envisaged is a busy person and such people do not want to spend time wading through pages of turgid prose when they require information. They are often going to need information in a hurry,
information that can be absorbed with a minimum of effort. There is, of course, a delicate balance to be struck, maintaining accurate information on the one hand with conciseness and readability on the other. I have tried to choose authors who are able to achieve that balance.
The aim, obviously, has been to cover audio engineering as widely as possible. Inevitably any one reader is going to feel that some topic has been missed out. This is unavoidable. A book that contained every potential reader’s required subjects would be impossibly big – and expensive! In one or two instances I was unable to track down specialist authors who were available to write on a particular topic – and when that happened I decided that it was better to leave that subject out rather than risk a pos-sibly second-rate contribution. I hope, though, that by covering the range from basic mathematics and formulae to recent digital techniques, there is enough here to fill a significant gap in the currently available literature.

Finally, it gives me particular pleasure to record my gratitude for the never-failing friendliness and helpfulness of three ladies at Butterworth-Heine-mann. They are Angela Leopard, Sarah Ward and Margaret Riley. The task of an Editor of a reference book can be at times very difficult and wearisome, but they have consistently smoothed paths for me and given words of cheer and encouragement to make my work enjoyable.
