This book has been specially written in clear, simple, non-technical language for that rapid growing band of enthusiasts for whom the tape recorder is as indispensable as a radio, a record player or a camera. It shows how the best possible results can be obtained from a recorder, whether it is used for pleasure or educational purposes.
After describing in detail the recording process, sound quality, and the various types of microphones and loudspeakers, it discusses the various accessories available and their uses. A chapter follows on maintenance and faults. Stereophonic recording, a subject currently arousing much interest, is fully discussed, and advice is given on the choice of recorder, the types available and their capabilities.
Recordings, studio arrangements and the editing of tape are discussed in detail, as is the synchronization of sound and film. Chapters are also devoted to use of the recorder in general education, the study of music, and ""tape clubs"". Another chapter briefly deals amongst other things with recording in professional studios, sound reproduction in cinema and theatre, tape-copying machines, automatic and continuous recorders, magnetic sound tracks on miniature film and magnetic recording of pictures.
In this second edition a chapter on cassette recorders has been added, explaining the principles and the advantages of this system for the user who above all wants ""simplicity of operation"".
Finally, two tables are included: one on faults and their remedies, the other setting out in alphabetical order the hundreds of possible uses of tape recorders. Undoubtedly these are the most comprehensive tables of their kind published to date. Because of its practical approach, this book, by an author with many years of experience in all branches of sound recording, will be easily understood even by those new to the subject, and will assist all those reading it to improve the standard of their recording.
