This one-of-a-kind book from a leading acoustics expert makes it possible for anyone with a modicum of electronics skills to build an inexpensive sound studio from scratch. It contains blueprints for eight complete designs, each accompanied by a comprehensive parts list. Author F. Alton Everest makes diffusion--a critical factor in small-room acoustics--accessible to the masses, offering plans for homemade diffusing elements. Professional audio engineers, sound technicians, bands, and upper-level audiophiles will be intrigued by the possibilites for designing the following audio rooms: voice-over recording studio; modern and classical music recording studio; rock music recording studio; small announce booth; film/video/audio workroom; home theater; control room; hi-fidelity listening room.
