HASH(0x8fbb399c) étoiles sur 5 Loads of information for the self-taught, at a comfortable pace for all 14 juin 2010
Par Dustin K. Beyette - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've been composing music using a DAW of some sort for the better of seven years. I've been making music for ten years. My instrumentation skills and production/engineering skills are completely self-taught. Sound like you? BUY THIS BOOK! This book is phenomenal. I highly recommend it. It demystifies music theory, and now I look at music that I make and listen to in an entirely different way. Because I'm vigorously self-taught, the first seven or so chapters were just refreshers. The same kind of stuff you'd find in tutorials and music production magazines occupy the first half of the book. The pace starts at such a slow understandable rate that I would recommend Music Theory for Computer Musicians to someone that has only been using a DAW for a month, and that is all they know about music, period. For the rest of us, about halfway through is when the complexities start stacking, but as long as you've been paying attention, you can take it all in and digest it all. For anyone that doesn't really understand music, they just get by with what feels right (such as myself), this book certainly helps you look at everything that has sounded good musically and figure it all out. I am so glad I read this. The exams at the end of each chapter also are extremely helpful for gauging what you already know and what you are learning. Now I can talk theory, see theory and most importantly hear theory.

HASH(0x8fbc039c) étoiles sur 5 Mistakes lead to confusion when trying to learn 16 août 2008
Par Greg A. Tirevold - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I had high hopes for this title. A book about music theory that is centered around the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) rather than the more traditional approaches used. The layout of the book is a chapter topic, with examples and illustrations followed by a 2-3 page section of review and application questions.

My first gripe was that the answers for the chapters were not included with the book. They are a pdf file you must download from the publisher. Normally I'd be ok with this except that when I bought the book in late May 2008, a month after its release, there was no answer download available. My email to the publisher was never answered leaving me to wonder if there ever would be a set of answers. Not even a canned "form letter response" ever arrived which would have at least acknowledged a receipt.

The first few chapters were fairly easy and the "official" answers were not really needed to know if you had answered correctly. As I got to the end of Chapter 7 on Meter I ran into questions that, to me seemed to be misprints, as the listed meters did not match the illustration of notes. This was the formation of my second big gripe. Standard 4/4 time is easy to understand and read but the author delves into 9/16, 2/4 and 3/8 time which takes the new theory student (i.e. me) some time to figure out how to interpret. The questions in this chapter had duplications and errors that were very confusing as I was trying to understand the topic and answer the questions while the questions themselves contained notation errors.

The answer download is available now, some 5 months after the book's release and sure enough chapter 7 answers show that the questions posed there had several misprints and errors. By this time I had already gone on to other books on theory and been able to correctly identify the mistakes. The problem is many new students to music theory will simply hit a confusing brick wall at this point since they are trying to answer "fill in the missing note" questions that have the wrong time signature to start with.

Now had the answers been available at the time of publication or, better yet, included with the $35 book, when I ran across these areas of seeming mistakes I would have been able to save myself any confusion and see it was just a misprint. Instead I had to go to other sources of music theory instruction to see if I was mistaken or misunderstanding the book. Not good.

I went on after chapter 7, but as the material became more complex I became less confident in the questions even being asked correctly. It is hard to learn from a source that you believe contains printing or content errors because as a student you simply can't tell if what you are being told is right or wrong. As the complexity rises you rely on solid examples and questions to understand and without a set of answers available I put the book away and went elsewhere.

It is a shame because the layout and writing style were good. The book got off to a good start but the problems in Chapter 7 and lack of official answers made further progress difficult.

Since the answers are out now and show the corrected questions perhaps the 2nd edition of the book will be able to fix the mistakes. People with the 1st edition can see the mismatches right away now instead of wondering why they can't seem to get a firm grasp on a topic.

I blame the publisher and editor of the book rather than the author. The author seems to have a good command of theory and put together a timely book. Unfortunately the failure of the publishers and editors made this a waste of money for me at the time. If you buy it now, since the answers are out, you may have a much better experience with it. I feel a bit like a beta tester honestly.

HASH(0x8fbc05dc) étoiles sur 5 5 stars; A must have for Computer Musicians 11 octobre 2009
Par DjSharperimage - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a really great book;

Very easy to understand since its uses the "piano roll" to explain the concepts; instead of just using the "sheet music format" alone like with traditional lessons

Just that one factor makes learning music theory a billion times easier

I highly recommend this for all computer musicians;

Reading this book was like getting a deluxe set of 1000 crayons when i used to have only 1 crayon to color with

HASH(0x8fbc093c) étoiles sur 5 A Great Book, But..... 4 février 2011
Par Doc Robby - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is a wonderful book, but buyer beware! The Kindle edition doesn't come with the CD that comes with the regular edition which in my opinion is essential to the readers experience. Amazon was good enough to give me my money back but I don't think the Kindle edition should be sold at all until this issue is resolved. Perhaps for the tracks one must listen to on the CD, the publishers can make a link to a website that plays the sounds and music that need to be heard in order to better understand what the author is trying to teach. I contacted the publishers and asked if they would send or even sale the CD to me, but they said the CD would only come with the book at 26.00 British Pounds which is equal to $42.00! What a joke! For $20.00 you can get the book and CD here on Amazon. Like the other 2 star reviewer I think the publishers aren't too bright and shoot themselves in the foot with their lack of foresight and professionalism. I can only hope the author of this book reads this review and is able to talk some sense into his publisher.

HASH(0x8fbc06f0) étoiles sur 5 A Good Foundational Book! 4 avril 2013
Par DJ Exquiz - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this book after reading the reviews saying it was basic and only good for beginners, etc! Well as someone who is not a complete beginner on music theory, having taking lessons and playing keyboard for years, this book is still very useful in reviewing topics that you may already know but need a refresher on. The fact that it does cover this using some examples of using a music Digital Audio Workstation (DAW for short) software's Piano Roll interface, there are examples from versions of various software and this book is NOT software specific, to me is a plus. No not every example is laid out in Piano Roll format like one reviewer suggested, and the writer does use most of the examples with traditional treble $ bass clef music notation. But if you are a complete beginner he does do a great job explaining how the piano roll layout in software translates to traditional treble & bass staff notation, and it even includes a introduction section on sound and synthesis.

Why 4 stars instead of five? For me this book is a solid basic music theory book, and has some very good examples and review exercises, so far I really like the sections on the cycle of fifths, the chapter on the different modes of music (different types of scales), and the section on the pentatonic scale (which is essential reading), however I was a little disappointed on the chapter on appregiation (splitting notes of chords in music melodies) and while it is good, hoped it would come with more examples since this is used extensively in most of today's dance music. Also a good basic section on drums, drum roll notation would have been nice, even though I know that's not covered in most music theory books, but this is a book for computer musicians and most using any DAW sequencer will have drums, opposed to someone who is just learning how to play the piano/keyboard or a guitar. It also does have guitar tab notation which is a plus, and there is a good section on rhythm, tempo, and note length. For me personally I think this book is a great introduction to music theory, a generally good reference, and the fact that it comes with an Audio CD of examples is a big plus. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who is looking for advanced examples, chord progressions, or techniques that are used in specific modern pop songs or songs of specific genre say R&B or Club Music, and I think this book would go well with others that cover some of its chapters in more detail. Some I think might be a good supplement to this book are:
1)Basic Chord Progressions (Alfred Handy Guide) , 2) Chord Progressions For Songwriters, 3) The Complete Book of Scales, Chords, Arpeggios and Cadences: Includes All the Major, Minor (Natural, Harmonic, Melodic) & Chromatic Scales - Plus Additional
4)Keyboard Chords & Scales Book (Fasttrack Series)Instructions on Music Fundamentals]] ,
and for keyboard specific players 5) The Piano Handbook: A Complete Guide for Mastering Piano
and for drums 6) Drum Programming: A Complete Guide to Program and Think Like a Drummer
for R&B and Hip Hop specific (which also translates to many dance styles) 7) RandB Soul Keyboards: The Complete Guide (Musicians Institute Press)
