Montclair, NJ (November 17, 2014)—Electronics Concepts, Labs, and Projects, is a new book from audio professional Alden Hackmann, published by Hal Leonard, which introduces concepts, techniques, and tools needed by pros in the fields of audio, video and multimedia recording.
The book includes theory relating to electronics principles specific to the audio world, as well as practical lessons on soldering, how to use a digital multimeter for testing audio gear and cables, and how to use an oscilloscope and function generator to diagnose circuits. Also included are descriptions of the components found in electronic circuits and how they work.
"Even if you never open up a piece of gear, an understanding of the concepts of electronics will add to your ability as an audio professional," said Hackmann. "This book will be extremely helpful when troubleshooting gear, such as bad cables, faulty microphones, malfunctioning preamps, consoles with bad power supplies, speakers with intermittent output, and other issues."
Hackmann uses a minimum of math to demonstrate practical concepts, and every chapter includes a hands-on lab to reinforce that chapter's concepts.
The accompanying DVD-ROM contains lecturers and illustrations that support and reinforce the concepts presented in the text.
