The Ultimate Live Sound Operator’s Handbook (BOOK/DVD Combo) is written to specifically address the concerns and needs of sound operators of all types. High-quality live sound audio reproduction is imperative, whether you’re running sound for a rock, country, punk, or jazz band performing in clubs, arenas, or outdoor parks.

With the advent and implementation of large-budget multimedia presentations, high-resolution multi-channel audio for movies, television, and downloads, any live act must sound great to be well received by today’s increasingly savvy audience members. 

This comprehensive handbook focuses on each aspect of live sound in a way that is straightforward and easy to understand, breaking the process down into principles and practices that assist the modern sound tech in everything from system design and acoustic considerations to miking and mixing the live show.

The accompanying DVD contains over two hours of video and audio examples, which combine with the book’s plain-English text, plus hundreds of detailed color illustrations and photographs to create a live sound learning experience like no other book ever published.
