    The approach taken is always practical and musically relevant as most of the instruction takes the form of “rebuilding� an instrumental track from the included audio CD. Step by step the reader is guided through how to set up the necessary tracks, record, and edit, first using MIDI tracks then...

    audio tracks. The final chapter provides what many books lack and that’s a way to test your knowledge of the subject you’ve been studying. Twelve DP project ‘exercises’ drill you on everything covered in the book, from setting up a project and naming tracks to audio editing and automation. Each step in the exercise includes a reference to the section of the book that covers a particular feature so that you can quickly look it up if you forget how to do something. Overall I really like this book, I think it’s given me a great heads up on using Digital Performer.
