Very good one!,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Dance Music Manual. Tools, Toys and Techniques (Taschenbuch)
I love this book! I haven't read it through already, but most of it, I picked out the chapters that were of most interest to me, like dance music theory, basic synthesis, compression, processing and effects, then some chapters about different dance music styles and about mixing. The topics of MIDI, sampling and digital audio, mastering and even marketing and copyrights are also covered, amongst others (recording vocals, tools of the trade, mixing desk). The whole book is 500 pages! And its not a lie whats written on the backside of the cover: Its packed with invaluable information.
It really gives you a great overview about anything you need to know when youre doing dance music. Snoman explaines, f.i., how the human perception works, and from that he derives how to use an equalizer. I've read another book with explanations about using an equalizer, but never understood why I should cut steep when minimizing, and more even when maximizing a sound. Thats just one example of very many in the book, that make it exciting, because Snoman has a deep knowledge and is able to provide the information in a short but very well explained and even entertaining form (but always very focused).
I've read about 5 other books on dance music, each covering only one aspect, like mixing, or arranging. I prefer each chapter of this book over the entire other books I've got, because I feel this is the information I need to have truly comprehend the topics better.
My skill levels are those of a beginner that has some basic knowledge aquired in online-forums and producing my own DAW-based music, which is profitting a lot from this book. In my opinion also absolute beginners can start with this book, if you don't understand it all at once, you will with a bit of experimenting and online-help. I don't know if it can also teach advanced users some things, but I do think so, since there is just so much information in it!
This is the first review that I write, I'm doing it because I really love this book.
