The Classical Musician's Recording Handbook (Technology)
With the wealth of literature on the subject of recording popular music, it is surprising that there are not many books which focus entirely on the subject of recording classical music. This book is a complete breakdown of the techniques used by today's technical wizards to capture that elusive, magical sound. This book contains such vital subjects as: choosing and positioning the right microphone; the differences between recording orchestras and solo instruments; and the delicate art of mixing. This book also covers the most esoteric matters of instrument care, surround sound and the dubious art of amplification. It is a valuable resource for anyone looking to capture the beauty of classical music in a recording. 142 pages.
