If you are serious about music, this is the guide to get you started!

Creating Digital Music and Sound covers the basic principles of digital music-making, from playing around with prerecorded, royalty-free loops and samples to full-on multitrack recording, synthesis, sampling, MIDI sequencing, surround sound, and mastering.

Unlike any comparable music and sound title this book also explores how to record and create soundtracks for videos, movies, animations, and games, and how to add audio to websites. It even includes a look at music-making suites for mobile phones.

Every page includes highly visual color coverage of the principles of using music-making and audio recording software from fun tools to professional suites, how to record and edit voices, and how to incorporate instruments both real and virtual into musical work, together with music-making hardware from keyboards and workstations to microphones, headphones, leads, and next-generation storage media.

* Learn the complete process from switching on your computer and connecting devices to producing professionally mastered soundtracks and publishing and sharing them
* Be inspired to create by interviews with top industry professionals, well-known musicians and composers
* Learn from the non-technical, easy to understand hints, tips, and expert work-throughs
