There are, however, many secrets behind using the software to maximize the quality and realism of the finished music. These tricks can be the difference between writing something that sounds 'kind of' real, and landing a big game or movie score deal.

It covers the technical and the artistic side of creating compelling, exciting and realistic music for video games. It includes disc with music examples rendered as easy-to-access MP3 files to go with each section of the book.
