5.0 out of 5 stars Choosing and Using Audio and Music Software by Mike Collins, 21 Jan 2005
This review is from: Choosing and Using Audio and Music Software: A guide to the major software applications for Mac and PC (Paperback)
Having decided to get into the world of computer music I was looking for a book that provided a good, unbiased, overview of the major software packages, what they do and who they are most suited to, before I part with my hard earned cash. This book is visually excellent with superb screen shots, is well laid out and easy to read. It fulfils my requirements providing the right amount of information in a manner that is easy to digest and comprehend and resolved simple questions that I was finding difficult to get straight answers to. Unless you know exactly what you want from the outset, choosing both the hardware and software for computer music is a major task, as there are not only the computer platform issues to deal with. Some hardware is not compatible with some software and so on it goes. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a good solid introduction to key software choices, coupled with basic tutorials to give you a feel for each package. A CD of evaluation versions of the software would have boosted the books value tremendously, as it is not exactly cheap, but this is not a catastrophe as they can be downloaded from manufacturers websites. Buy it from Amazon with the discount and it becomes excellent value for money.
