    The title sucks, as it doesn't represent how technical this book actually is. The author really knows his theory and the science behind synthesis.

    "Dance music manual" is extremely essential if you're into music production! It gives you the foundation, so you can start producing your own musical content and knowing exactly what you're doing (not by trial and error). I strongly recommend it!

    This book has the lowest filler-to-content ratio of any reference book I have ever owned. This is not to say that every piece of information is usable to the average producer, especially one who is just starting out.

This is not to say that every piece of information is usable to the average producer, especially one who is just starting out. Much much of the information in this book is related to specific genres or pieces of studio equipment, but even that is written succinctly and given enough context to make it interesting to a broader audience. The book was written in 2008, and by 2012 considering the volatility of the medium, it is starting to show its age. Still, most of the info is based on techniques that can be adapted and recycled to accommodate newer trends (yes, by that I mean Dubstep). To be clear, this is a book on music production, not DJing. The subject of DJing is only discussed in brief and is not the primary topic of this book.

    This is a pretty dense book, and sometimes the grammar leaves much to be desired. That said, it's a deep and comprehensive book on music production in general, and not just dance music. It might take some patience to digest, because you may have to read chapters several times before the concepts stick. Also helpful is the companion piece with files to accompany some of the chapters.

    This has given me some great ideas for synth programming.

    This might be a good choice for a first read if you want to start making dance music. It is an easy read as it does not go very deep and does not get very technical. However, this book really needs some revision, e.g. the chapter about compressors is kind of unprecise / wrong (explanations of threshold, attack and release times).

    Book is awfully written and greatly outdated. Many tips and tricks are whether well known today or don't generate much interest neither for professional EDM producers nor amateurs. Книга безнадёжна. Автор, судя по всему, застрял в 1990-х, если судить по его советам по продвижению своей музыки на "современной" поп-сцене. Что касается музыкальной части, то она написана ужасно: видимо, книга была издана в авторской редакции.

    Learning about music production from the books may not be the most favored way, but if you decide to do so, then this is your thing!! This book is fully comprehensive with anything you need as a music producer (EDM in particularly), starting from basis of midi, synthesis, and music theory, all the way to publishing and promotion of your music. Hardly will you find a relevant topic not covered in this big one.

    A bit basic so far, but appears promising.
