The Digital Musician: an Introduction to MIDI, Digital Instruments and Beyond
Geoffrey Stanton: The Digital Musician: an Introduction to MIDI, Digital Instruments and Beyond
Wayne Leupold Editions
For anyone interested in electronic keyboards and MIDI interfaces with other instruments and coming to it for the first time, this book should answer all questions. It covers the very basics of digital synthesisers and sound modules, some unbearably simple for experienced musicians, but it must be included all the same. It also covers MIDI and digital instruments, a much larger and more complicated section, covering drum machines sequencers and the like. There is a good glossary and thirteen repertoire examples of organ music enabling practical set-up and notes on performance.
