The New Stereo Soundbook has gained recognition as an industry-standard reference and textbook for audio and recording professionals, students, and lay-enthusiasts. The second edition (1998) and now the third edition (2006) have added new material to the chapters on microphone techniques and updated the examination of multi-channel and surround sound.
This book's fourteen chapters explore the auditory and technical processes by which the "stereo illusion" is perceived, recorded, and reproduced, and trace the development of stereo from the 1881 experiments of Clement Ader through the latest concepts in surround-sound recording and home-theater presentation.
