    Hi Folks!
    I'm a student musician at a certain Boston based Conservatory in New England. I am considering changing direction in my studies from performance to Audio Science and Engineering. I Have NO clue where to begin.

    I'm currently away from school until January and want to begin studying the basics of Audio. Before I return.

    Is there anyone who could: point me in the Direction of good Reference and Educational Materials and give me advice on how and where to begin my studying?
    Personal anecdotes and experiences are welcome!
    Thanks Friends!

    The first book you need is the Davis Sound Reinforcement Handbook. Mostly you need to study gain staging and mic patterns and positions. After the room itself, 90% of getting the track is mic position and 9% the performance itself. This is especially true in classical/acoustic music.
