Summary

Summary

"Going Digital offers the working musician an easy-to-use guide to the world of digital music making. Without any prior technical knowledge, you'll be able to make music using your computer. The book covers everything from digital music (and what it is) to the link between computers and music (and how to make it), the world of MIDI (the Musical Instrument Digital Interface), and going online for further resources. While many musicians are afraid of this new technology and find most manuals to be simply rehashes of tech talk, this book offers a practical view of what's out there and makes it easy to get up and running quickly. Illustrated with useful charts, diagrams, and screen shots drawn from popular software programs, and written in an engaging style, this will be the perfect resource for both the novice user and the long plugged-in."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
