The audio dictionary

“The Audio Dictionary is a comprehensive resource of contemporary as well as historical, obsolete, and obscure terms relating to diverse aspects of audio – film and TV sound, recording, Hi-Fi, and acoustics. The Third Edition includes: four hundred new entries, such as AAC (advanced audio coding), lip synch, metadata, MP3, and satellite radio; every term from previous editions has been reconsidered and often rewritten; guest entries by Dennis Bohn, cofounder and head of research and development at Rane Corporation, and film sound expert Larry Blake, whose credits include Erin Brockovich and Ocean’s Eleven; and the appendixes – tutorials that gather a lifetime’s worth of experience in acoustics – include both new and greatly expanded articles.”–Jacket.
