This book is designed for the amateur or professional musician who wants to increase his or her knowledge of arranging. Even though the focus is on techniques for the musician who is electronically oriented, the discussions of acoustic instruments and voices will improve your knowledge of sound production and your arranging skills. A few MIDI keyboards, a sequencer, and a drum machine are all the tools you need to explore the techniques outlined in this book. No matter what your involvement in music, a solid knowledge of arranging will make your contributions to music that much more valuable.
