      Comments about oreilly FL Studio Cookbook:

      As someone with a small amount of music knowledge, but fairly high computer literacy, music creation didn't quite 'click' for me until I found DAWs. Namely FL Studio. However, trying to trudge through it myself was a fairly daunting task given my ignorance of musical terms and basic MIDI operation. When I found Shaun Friedman and his FL Studio Cookbook, I felt relief. Here was the solution for someone like me. A musician who created a tutorial book based on creating music but with the technical thoroughness of a programing language manual. Essentially removing the software from my challange of music production by providing comprehensive instructions.
