Audio Control Handbook For Radio and Television Broadcasting. Third Revised Edition.
Oringel, Robert S.
Audio control is the operation of all the types of sound equipment found in the studios and control rooms of a radio or television station. Written in a nontechnical style for beginners, the book explains thoroughly the operation of all types of audio equipment. Diagrams and photographs of commercial consoles, microphones, turntables, and tape recorders illustrate the text. Also covered are the care of records and tapes, tape editing, and "patching" (bypassing equipment which breaks down when a program is on the air). The use of playbacks and of microphones and the placement of equipment in the studio are discussed in detail. The procedures to be followed when a program is on the air, including the cues and hand signals the audio control man uses, are covered through example and photograph. The Federal Communications Commission's rules and regulations pertaining to audio control operators are listed. A glossary and index make the handbook a useful reference as well as textbook. (JK)
