5.0 étoiles sur 5 La référence ecore améliorée. 27 avril 2009
Par Mo'Hats VOIX VINE
Format:Broché
Il faut comprendre le titre "Dance Music Manual" au sens anglo-saxon, désignant les musiques jouées par les DJ en club. En réalité ce livre traite des musiques contemporaines élaborées à partir d'instruments électroniques matériels et/ou logiciels(synthétiseurs, sampleurs...), comme le hip hop, la house, la techno, le trip hop...

La première édition, grâce à la pertinence de son contenu et ses qualités pédagogiques, s'est imposée comme la référence en matière de production de musiques électroniques, qu'elles soient mainstream ou underground.

Ce livre conserve l'articulation en trois partie; "Technology and theory" qui expose les techniques du son(synthèse, effets, enregistrement...) et la théorie musicale(harmonie...); "Dance genres" qui met en pratique la première partie pour un genre donné; "Mixing and promotion" qui s'attache au mixage, au mastering et le music business.

Cependant, les chapitres ont été réorganisés, la mise en page améliorée et certaines informations mises à jour. En outre, deux genres ont été ajoutés, le UK Garage et la Drum'n'Bass, alors que le chapitre "Tools of the trade" a disparu.

Cette nouvelle édition, qui s'avère encore plus complète et claire que la première, est le guide indispensable pour celui/celle qui souhaite s'initier à la production de musiques électroniques.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Recommandé à TOUS les musiciens de studio 24 février 2012
Par Ralph
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Un bouquin technique est souvent décevant :
-Vous en savez plus que le type qui l'a écrit
-Le type qui l'a écrit en sait beaucoup trop pour vous
-La gamberge du type qui l'a écrit ne correspond pas à la vôtre
-Le type est un sale con qui veut se faire mousser
-etc.
Ici, vous avez affaire à autre chose : un super-bouquin que tout musicien de studio et home-studio devrait lire. D'ailleurs, si vous n'êtes pas "Dance", ça n'a aucune importance : vous apprendrez quand même à vous servir d'éléments cruciaux.
... J'ai côtoyé tellement de bambanes qui tournaient les boutons "dans tous les sens" en séance sans savoir ce qu'ils faisaient... Pardonne-leur, Seigneur :-)
Le meilleur livre technique que j'ai lu sur la production musicale en plusieurs décennies de pratique.
A lire les yeux ouverts, mais vous pouvez l'acheter les yeux fermés.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unique, au service des débutants comme des experts 22 septembre 2010
Par eLidzer
Format:Broché
J'adore ce livre. Autant pour son contenu précieux, qui permet de choper ou de consolider ses bases sur à peu près tout, que sur sa manière dont il a été écrit, pouvant servir aussi bien aux débutants qui veulent avoir des notions, qu'aux musiciens pros qui auront à leur disposition une mini-bible de la musique électronique.

Son seul hic? Pas pour moi mais pour certains francophones, ce sera l'obstacle de la langue, donc feuilletez-bien le bouquin via Amazon, avant de l'acheter. Après, c'est pas mal de termes techniques, donc un audiophile qui a déjà manié un DAW saura de quoi ça parle.

Tchuss!

Cet ouvrage est à posséder, même pour les amateurs qui souhaitent simplement composer sans trop se prendre la tête sur la partie technique, mais qui veulent quand même en savoir un minimum pour avoir un son moins brouillon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As good as, sometimes better than, the 1st edition 15 décembre 2008
Par Mark Alsip - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I own the first edition and used it so much the book literally fell apart, partly due to cheap binding but mostly the repetitive flipping back and forth to dozens of bookmarked pages with useful technical info. I'm not a musician but as a computer programmer for 20+ years I have read more books of a technical nature than the law should allow, and on that basis I can honestly say this is the best tech book I have ever read. It's been a fantastic introduction to electronic music production, with clear enough explanations of concepts that I never felt intimidated or "talked down to" but more than enough in-depth material that I could take my newfound obsession with music production just as far as I wanted. The included CD was particularly helpful, with a full track in each of the genres covered by the book, with the author breaking in with at least 20 minutes of narrative on each, explaining the tools and methods used in production of the track. This was crucial to me because I don't think it's possible to learn music by simply reading words. Being able to listen to "before" and "after" versions of a compressed kick loop gelled perfectly with the compression tips and tricks discussed in the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Holy cow, this book rocks 16 mars 2009
Par A.C.E. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
First off, the title of this book is a little (okay, a lot) misleading. From the title, you would think it would be a light-hearted, casual intro to dance music. This is not the case. This book is like a massive compendium of every single concept you would ever want to know about dance music, or anything like unto it. The first pages are all about sculpting sounds from waveforms, and it's not easy reading! As a matter of fact, that's my only criticism of this book - so much of it was over my head. But what the author lacks in his ability to explain concepts to complete newbie/morons (like me), he more than makes up for with his vast amount of knowledge, and the breadth of the subjects in the book. This really is EVERYTHING you could ever want to know about dance music - how audio works, how synth programming works, dance music trends, effects, etc.

And the author doesn't just tell you the "how", he tells you the "why". It's a book for both artists and techies alike, which is a hard line to straddle. I really have enjoyed this book, and will no doubt read it again as soon as I'm done. It's opened my eyes to soooooo much!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must have for any Dance Music Producer 10 novembre 2008
Par Travis J. Basso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Rick Snoman is a Dance music GOD! This book is a must must have for anyone who intends to write/remix/compose/produce dance music in any capacity. It is written generally with a novice in mind but those of us with more experience will benefit from having it as a reference. It offers an in-depth look into the major genres of dance music and covers everything from how to tweak the knobs of your synth to drum machine programming and musical analysis all the way to remixing, sampling, mastering and promotion! It is a very wide scope of information and it covers it all very well and very informatively. Anyone from beginner to pro can definitely benefit from buying this book. IF YOU ASPIRE TO WRITE DANCE MUSIC DO NOT WAIT; BUY THIS BOOK! It is like the textbook for dance music.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "He wrote the book on it." 21 janvier 2013
Par Louis S. Carrozzi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Short answer: If you want to become a better dance music artist, and/or producer, and feel you need to read a book to get a better grasp of everything involved, buy THIS book.

End of story.

Longer answer: I have been an "electronic composer" for the last 15 years, but my tracks always lacked that polish and groove that really drives EDM and DJ sets, or pumps the laid back groves of Hip Hop, so I was shopping around for books that dealt with these subjects as well as the technical side of things such as programming synth patches, engineering, arrangement etc. and this book hits the mark every step of the way, even diving into music theory, mixing, mastering, and promotion - all of it starting with "sound theory".

Now, after having read through a good portion of both books, I am very happy with my purchase and blown away at how much useful information is now in my hands. These books are worth at least double, maybe even triple what they are selling for. Some of the information is invaluable - at least to me.

The two editions are slightly different, as the first goes into a good deal of hardware and software, where the second edition drops this section, but goes into more depth on other topics such as synth programming, so if you want it all, get both editions, however either edition stands solidly on it's own.

Having said that, the second edition is far more relevant to 2013 than the first edition, so if you have to pick one, get this one. (The second edition).

This book is written in a style that any beginner will be able to pick up, but Rick doesn't assume you are an idiot, nor does he water down any subject like a lot of "intro" books do without imparting any practical knowledge. In fact, this book is just the opposite. It's like Rick wrote a small book on each subject and then distilled them down to only the most important and essential concepts and then made each a chapter of this book. Every section is cram packed with useful information, and the knowledge gets both specific and practical. The techniques get a thorough treatment, and everything is explained within the context of the genres of dance music being discussed. This book is obviously written by a man who knows exactly what he is talking about, without ever being condescending or getting too technical to be useful. I have learned a TON in the last two weeks. More than I have learned in the last 2 years. For example, today I learned the structure of a dance music track, section by section, (and how it differs from a typical radio arrangement). Also: You know that effect where an EDM artist changes sounds rapidly during a riff to make a really complex sounding riff (e.g Skrillex or David Guetta...)? It's called "hocketing" and it is accomplished by duplicating a riff to multiple instrument tracks and then subtracting notes from each track. Maybe you knew that, but I didn't. Now I do.

Want to know about sound cards? Covered. How to program a kick drum, bass, or lead? Covered. Cabling? Covered. Music theory? Covered. Hip Hop musical structure? Covered. Trance? Covered. Breakdowns of the TR909 and the TR808 drum machines? Covered. Pick something, and it's probably in here.

It is truly impressive (and a gift) that Rick tried to tackle so many subjects related to Dance Music and cram it all into 1 book, and for the most part he does it with flying colors. He even gave the most clear explanation of music theory I have ever read, cramming it all into 1 chapter. A very detailed chapter!

And, while this book doesn't cover some specifics of live performance or mixing on headphones, it absolutely covers gear setups from cables to mixers to audio units as well as in depth explanations about mixing and mastering which more than cover the needed skills.

However, as valuable as all the information is, this book is still, at it's heart, a starting platform. This book is squarely aimed at the reader who wants to be the next great EDM, Hip Hop artist or producer, but maybe doesn't have the knowledge nor the skills to get there. This book provides a STRONG, holistic foundation of knowledge to build upon, is a reference book that will get used and worn out and is, at times, an inspirational piece. This book won't write music for you, nor replace a lot of hard work, nor make you a star, but if you want to do all those things, this book will give you a GIANT push in the right direction and provide an entire framework to work with in accomplishing those goals.

Yes, there are other books out there that go into each subject Rick covers in "The Dance Music Manual", but really, if you had to buy one and only one book on this subject, this is the book you need.

One final note: If you already produce and/or gig for a living, perhaps you won't get much out of this book as a beginner, but even experienced professionals MAY be able to glean some knowledge from this book that they didn't have before. For example, if you are a great producer, but don't know much about promotion, this book is worth checking out.

So, is Rick Snowman an expert on dance music production?

Yeah! In fact, he wrote the book on it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Covers more than programming and sequencing 28 juin 2009
Par James Graves - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is a very good book for the beginner. There is a lot of "bread and butter" information in this book.
There is a lot of detailed information on creating synthesizer patches and sounds. The section on mixing and effects is very good.
Music theory really requires it's own book(s) but the section in this book is a good introduction.

The book gives you good starting points for the production of different genres of electronic music.

If you are just starting to make music digitally I recommend this book. It won't be the last book on music you ever buy (if you like learning from books) but it is a very good introduction to the many aspects of making electronic music.

It's worth the money.
