Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The digital music revolution isn't just for keyboardists anymore. Guitarists can now get in on the action. Recently, the computer music world has exploded with plug-ins that emulate popular amplifiers and effects. Imagine having a virtual roomful of the greatest amps ever made, the ability to use any speaker cabinet you like, a wide selection of microphones, and a broad array of effects-all within your computer! And that's just the beginning. With the right equipment and a computer, you can now access synthesizer sounds directly from your guitar using MIDI technology, sequence your MIDI guitar with popular DAWs, such as Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase, Logic, Digital Performer, and others, change from a Stratocaster sound to a Les Paul sound with the turn of a knob, learn how to control virtual instruments with your guitar, instead of with a keyboard, and much, much more. While it's amazing that all this power is within your grasp, you will need some pointers on how to use it effectively. Digital Guitar Power! provides the guidance that guitarists need to get the most out of new digital technology. The book is designed for anyone who plays the guitar and is interested in using the latest technology to make music with it. If you're new to computer music, this book will explain all the terminology, help you find the right software and the best hardware, and then teach you how to use it. If you play the guitar and already own some home recording technology, you'll find out how to get the most out of your current setup. You'll also learn some of the cutting-edge technologies available today and how you can use them most effectively. If you play guitar and have always wanted to start recording at home, this book will show you whatÂ's out there, what you can afford, and most importantly, what skills you need in order to do it right.

Synopsis:

MIDI guitar has finally taken off and computer tools for guitarists are multiplying rapidly.
