Recording and Producing Audio for Media

Alfred Music Publishing, the world leader in educational print music publishing since 1922, distributes Recording and Producing Audio for Media, an instructional resource that introduces the basic audio production techniques and principles for today’s media producers, from Course Technology PTR, a division of Cengage Learning.

Written by highly respected author Stan Alten, Recording and Producing Audio for Media is a comprehensive and up-to-date educational guide with more than 700 pages covering current sound engineering methods and practices. Aspiring musicians, sound engineers, and producers are taught the fundamentals of the principles, technologies, and techniques of audio production and post-production for media, including radio, television, film, music recording, interactive media, the Internet, and mobile media.

The text covers informational, perceptual, and aesthetic aspects of sound as they apply to each stage of the production process, from planning on through post-production and finished product. Because there are so many different types of computers and computer software programs in use in an ever-changing landscape, the relationship of computers to audio production is covered from a non-software, non-hardware specific approach.  Helpful diagrams and graphics are included for further understanding of the topics covered in the textbook.

Stanley R. Alten taught audio production, TV/Film aesthetics, writing, and criticism at Syracuse University, and has been honored for teaching excellence by the Outstanding Educators of America, Alpha Epsilon Rho, and the National Science Foundation. Before teaching, he worked in radio and television as a producer, writer, sound designer, performer, and station manager.

Recording and Producing Audio for Media is now available for $44.99 at music retail stores and online today through the Drummer Cafe.
