Biographical sketch of the Author of Sound Recording Advice.
John J. Volanski initially became interested in recording audio back in the 1960s in Ohio when his father first purchased a 4-track reel/reel recorder with the sound-on-sound feature. Since that time, audio engineering and sound recording have always been a part of his personal and professional pursuits.
John is an electrical and audio engineer who has operated his own home recording studio for over 20 years. The text in this book gives his unique and simplified perspectives on the important aspects of home studio recording. He also enjoys writing, and has written articles for Electronic Musician magazine and Avionics magazine. John has a MBA from National University and a BSEE from Ohio State University.
In his professional life as an electrical engineer, John has over 23 years of engineering design and management experience with successful product development of avionics simulator systems as well as work with Virtual Reality and systems using audio and video. He has held engineering design and engineering management jobs at General Dynamics, Ball Systems Engineering, and Cubic Defense Systems.
At GreyStone Technologies, John won a patent for his work on a motion based Virtual Reality machine.
As Senior Engineering Manager at the Video Systems Division of Sensormatic, John had the overall design, development responsibility for all embedded systems security and surveillance products, including the Integra Digital Time Lapse Video DVDRAM Recorder, which won the SIA Product of the Year award for CCTV for 2000.
As VP Engineering at Excelsus Technologies, John helped win the SIA New Product Showcase 2001 Product Achievement Award for False Alarm Reduction.
John's future plans include updating his book as more cool gear becomes available and pursuing his interests in audio engineering, electrical engineering and music.
