Tips, techniques, and lucky guesses

This beginner's guide to the basics of live concert sound mixing and mic techniques is written by industry vet Jerry Slone, whose baptism-by-fire road experiences will teach you need-to-know stuff they simply don't teach in school! Lessons in The Basics of Live Sound provide easy-to-understand coverage aimed at the novice on live audio topics such as: sound and hearing; microphone models, specs and techniques; mixers; equalization; amplifiers; speakers; the audio chain; schools and universities for continuing education; audio equipment setup; and much more. Ever since talent show appearances in his preteen years, Jerry Slone has been the guy who got stuck hooking up the PA and trying to tweak it to make it sound better. After graduating from the Recording Industry program at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), he road-managed and mixed house audio for a touring band. Today, he works with acts signed to major labels.

    Comments about Hal Leonard The Basics of Live Sound Book:

    I was really happy to see in this book that it said it was going to answer the question, "What are all those things on the mixer?". Well, it didn't, or if it did, it went from really simple to way over my head in a minute. The book was poorly organized from a beginners standpoint. I'd like to see a book about the mixer that starts at the first knob and goes from there, including all of the ports on the back.
