A player's guide to chords & harmony : music theory for real-world musicians by Jim Aikin( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a very practical, no-nonsense way, this book covers the "other stuff" that gets skipped in most secondary school music programs and is often neglected by private teachers. Starting with the simplest concepts, this book builds a conceptual framework that will enable you both to understand what's going on harmonically in the music you play and to create your own music with greater confidence."--Back cover
Power tools for synthesizer programming : the ultimate reference for sound design by Jim Aikin( Recording )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you make any type of electronic music dance mixes, hip-hop, jazz fusion, country pop, film soundtracks, or experimental avant-garde Power Tools for Synthesizer Programming is the book for you. All too often, owner's manuals tell you what button to press, but fail to explain what's actually going on in the instrument or what it means musically and technically. This is the only book that gives you the big picture while at the same time providing you with insightful details. Even if you're just grabbing presets to play on the keyboard, you'll get to the music faster thanks to the tips in this book. And when you start editing the presets or designing your own sounds, Power Tools for Synthesizer Programming becomes an essential resource. Chapters on oscillators, filters, envelope generators, LFOs, effects, and digital audio reveal how to get the most out of your instruments. To supplement the text, dozens of new illustrations have been added, and more than 30 streaming online videos, narrated by the author, walk you through the operational details of numerous software instruments
