Ten Minute Masters


PC Publishing have sent us details of their latest book release of interest to Sonicstate surfers. MusicTech magazine's Ten Minute Masters is a collection of potted explanations of music theories, technologies, protocols and processes written by the staff of the UK’s MusicTech Magazine. PC say it is as useful to the newcomer as to the expert, giving everyone sufficient information to grasp a concept in the space of 1,500 words – or just ten minutes.
They say that whether you’re a musician new to technology, or a recording expert a bit light on your musical theory, the Ten Minute Masters will help you fill your knowledge gaps and add useful snippets to what you thought you already understood.
