A good book on MIDI?

Post by Sal Orland » Tue, 04 Mar 1997 04:00:00



 Does anyone know of a good, current book on MIDI?

I have looked around and the stuff I have found is generally either
really old or awful.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

You can try "The Musician's Guide To MIDI". (ISBN 0-7821-1285-4)
This book is fairly easy to understand.  It provides basic knowledge of
MIDI hardware, software, general implementation of controllers, NRPN & RPN
message format, SysEx message format, basic sequencing technique, some
sysnthesizer specific information, and so on.

MacWorld's _Music & Sound Bible_ (1992, ISBN 1878058185) weighs in
at just about 1400 pages and covers about -- 1400 pages worth of stuff.
"For the Beginner or Seasoned Professional Alike" it says.  If it were
typed in your average book's type (more pages=higher price), it'd probably
have twice as many pages.  Many, many illustrations and tables, too.
Used to list at $38- US.

Hi All,
  Dont know exactly what kind of midi book you are looking for. Mix
Bookshelf has a lot of them. The Desktop Musican by David Rubin is one
of the newer ones. Comes with a cdrom of Mac and PC software demos.
  Sequencing Secrets by Ian Waugh by UK publisher PC Publishing is a
fine book. PC Publishing has many nice books on midi. Here in US, one
can find them at Borders, Barnes and Noble, MicroCenter.
  Happy Midi
