Covers a lot of stuff
I've been using this book for a couple of weeks now and it's totally got me
excited about doing music on my computer again. I know a bit about some of
the programs covered in the book (Logic, Reason, Garageband) already, but
it gave me more of an idea of how to use those programs more effectively.
It also gave me the opportunity to learn about other programs I have been
wanting to use. Plus there's just a ton of information about the different
software and plugins that are available, some really cool stuff (especially
the free stuff). There's also sections that provide "real world scenarios"
that I found immensely helpful. These sections gave me ideas of how to use
the tools in new ways. The DVD that comes with the book has some great
stuff too, freeware, loops, plugins, etc. Super cool.
Overall it has a wealth of information that is relevant to beginners as
well as people like me who already have some knowledge of Mac music
production. The book is laid out really well and the writing is engaging
and well thought out. I can't say enough good stuff about it. I'm sure I
will go back to it frequently. Good stuff! -- Amazon.com Customer Review
