Vancouver-based Tim Crich’s Assistant Engineers Handbook (Black ink Publishing) — required reading in audio schools across North America – was followed up with Recording Tips for Engineers (Focal Press) that has 1000 hints for recording engineers and musicians starting with a crash-course in physics — breaking down wavelength, amplitude and frequency into digestible explanations and illustrations.

His latest title, Pendulums and Falling Bodies: A collection of technical illustrations – Volume One (Black ink Publishing, 2022), is an exquisite collection of illustrations culled from his previous books on sound recording.
