Rayburn The Microphone Book, 3rd Ed. Absolutely the best free information on mics, just loaded with great stuff. Valuable stuff from two of the experts.
A great complement to Doug Self's book below. Of the few seen, I prefer this one, and it just keeps getting better with each edition. Also recommended is his book on small signal audio circuits listed here and another on designing active crossovers found here. Slone, G. Audio Eng. Ballou, Glen, ed. The book is divided into chapters written by multiple authors, resulting in great differences in treatment, tone and thoroughness of subject matter.

Benson, K. Blair , ed. Too bad it is out of print. A lot of the material is done at an advanced level and quite difficult, but valuable. See Whitaker for revised edition. Bohn, Dennis A. Sound System Engineering, 4th ed. Harada, Kai Sound Handbook. Hit the link and enjoy; definitely a great and fun introduction to sound and audio. Jones, Douglas R. There is a companion website, www. Lampen, Stephen H. This tome is a comprehensive reference covering basic audio principles and the practical design of all types of classic radio receivers, audio amplifiers and record-producing equipment up to the invention of the transistor.
This is the book you consult to learn how they did compressors in the very old days, for instance. McCarthy, Bob. Sound Systems: Design and Optimization, 3rd. Thorough treatment of using dual channel FFT analyzers, acoustic prediction programs and DSP boxes to set up any sound system. Lots of very useful full-color images and diagrams. Already a classic, methinks. Metzler, Bob. Bob explains. He has done a great job of gathering in one place all the truly relevant information about audio engineering.
There are woefully few books on analog audio circuit design as it is, but this is truly a monumental work. Only Self could fill pages on this topic—and not one word too many! BUY IT. However, if you are not an audio engineer, then I think this should not be your only reference book.
It covers a lot of ground, from the math and physics of audio, all the way through digital audio transmission and standards. Too much, I think, for any one volume. The info is there, but it is quite sparse and difficult in places. This book takes work, but has value. Hit the link and download away. Tremaine, Howard M. Audio Cyclopedia, 2nd ed. Howard W.

For some 30 years after his death successive editions of his verse stamped his powerful influence upon English poets. During the Restoration his writing went out of fashion and remained so for several centuries. Throughout the 18th century, and for much of the 19th century, he was little read and scarcely appreciated. His prose remained largely unnoticed until Its extraordinary appeal to modern readers throws light on the Modernist movement, as well as on our intuitive response to our own times. His high place in the pantheon of the English poets now seems secure.
Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone, Let maps to others, worlds on worlds have shown, Let us possess one world, each hath one, and is one. The poetry inhabits an exhilaratingly unpredictable world in which wariness and quick wits are at a premium. Exploiting and being exploited are taken as conditions of nature, which we share on equal terms with the beasts of the jungle and the ocean.
He hunts not fish, but as an officer, Stays in his court, as his own net, and there All suitors of all sorts themselves enthral; So on his back lies this whale wantoning, And in his gulf-like throat, sucks everything That passeth near. Donne characterizes our natural life in the world as a condition of flux and momentariness, which we may nonetheless turn to our advantage. But we by a love, so much refined, That our selves know not what it is, Inter-assured of the mind, Care less, eyes, lips, and hands to miss. Donne finds some striking images to define this state in which two people remain wholly one while they are separated.
A supple argument unfolds with lyric grace. The poems editors group together were not necessarily produced thus. Donne did not write for publication. Fewer than eight complete poems were published during his lifetime, and only two of these publications were authorized by him. The poems he released were passed around in manuscript and transcribed by his admirers singly or in gatherings. Some of these copies have survived. When the first printed edition of his poems was published in , two years after his death, the haphazard arrangement of the poems gave no clue to the order of their composition.
Many modern editions of the poetry impose categorical divisions that are unlikely to correspond to the order of writing, separating the love poetry from the satires and the religious poetry, the verse letters from the epithalamiums and funeral poems. Donne may well have composed them at intervals and in unlike situations over some 20 years of his poetic career.
Some of them may even have overlapped with his best-known religious poems, which are likely to have been written about , before he took holy orders. Poems so vividly individuated invite attention to the circumstances that shaped them. Donne was born in London between January 24 and June 19, into the precarious world of English recusant Catholicism, whose perils his family well knew. His father, John Donne, was a Welsh ironmonger. Yet at some time in his young manhood Donne himself converted to Anglicanism and never went back on that reasoned decision.
Though no records of his attendance at Cambridge are extant, he may have gone on to study there as well and may have accompanied his uncle Jasper Heywood on a trip to Paris and Antwerp during this time. After sailing as a gentleman adventurer with the English expeditions to Cadiz and the Azores in and , he entered the service of Sir Thomas Egerton, the lord keeper of England. More came up to London for an autumn sitting of Parliament in , bringing with him his daughter Ann, then Donne and his helpful friends were briefly imprisoned, and More set out to get the marriage annulled, demanding that Egerton dismiss his amorous secretary.
The marriage was eventually upheld; indeed, More became reconciled to it and to his son-in-law, but Donne lost his job in and did not find regular employment again until he took holy orders more than 12 years later. Throughout his middle years he and his wife brought up an ever-increasing family with the aid of relatives, friends, and patrons, and on the uncertain income he could bring in by polemical hackwork and the like. But in the present state of the world, and ourselves, the task becomes heroic and calls for a singular resolution. Such unsettling idiosyncrasy is too persistent to be merely wanton or sensational.
It subverts our conventional proprieties in the interest of a radical order of truth. Yet grace, if thou repent, thou canst not lack; But who shall give thee that grace to begin? Oh make thyself with holy mourning black, And red with blushing, as thou art with sin. Mark in my heart, O soul, where thou dost dwell, The picture of Christ crucified, and tell Whether that countenance can thee affright.
Spit in my face ye Jews, and pierce my side, Buffet, and scoff, scourge, and crucify me, For I have sinned, and sinned, and only he, Who could do no iniquity, hath died. Wit becomes the means by which the poet discovers the working of Providence in the casual traffic of the world. A serious illness that Donne suffered in produced a still more startling poetic effect. Is the Pacific Sea my home?
Or are The eastern riches? Is Jerusalem? Anyan, and Magellan, and Gibraltar, All straits, and none but straits, are ways to them.

By this self-questioning he brings himself to understand that his suffering may itself be a blessing, since he shares the condition of a world in which our ultimate bliss must be won through well-endured hardship. I have a sin of fear, that when I have spun My last thread, I shall perish on the shore; But swear by thy self, that at my death thy son Shall shine as he shines now, and heretofore; And, having done that, thou hast done, I fear no more.
For this poet such coincidences of words and ideas are not mere accidents to be juggled with in jest. They mark precisely the working of Providence within the order of nature. The transformation of Jack Donne the rake into the Reverend Dr.
Donne, dean of St. One reason for the appeal of Donne in modern times is that he confronts us with the complexity of our own natures. Once committed to the Church, Donne devoted himself to it totally, and his life thereafter becomes a record of incumbencies held and sermons preached. He was elected dean of St. Over a literary career of some 40 years Donne moved from skeptical naturalism to a conviction of the shaping presence of the divine spirit in the natural creation. Yet his mature understanding did not contradict his earlier vision. He simply came to anticipate a Providential disposition in the restless whirl of the world.
The amorous adventurer nurtured the dean of St. Freedom is where the artist begins: there are no rules, and the principles and habits are up to you. With the exception of the Anniversaries, almost none of Donne's poems were published during his lifetime; only one poem survives in his holograph. The texts for all others derive from more than two hundred pieces of manuscript evidence, the majority of which are catalogued by Peter Beal in Index to English Literary Manuscripts, volume one London: R.
