"In an easy-to-read, clear style, Hosken provides an overview of acoustics and psychoacoustics, digital audio, audio hardware; sequencing, recording and notation software; computer-assisted learning, synthesis, sampling, MIDI, etc... In short, a book that will fulfill the demands of college level courses, while still being a useful self-paced learning tool for anybody interested in music technology." - Neil Manel Frau­ Cortes, Sonograma Magazine
