If you are a composer of orchestal music and you use MIDI orchestration or a virtual orchestra in either your final productions or in MIDI mockups, you need to buy this book.

The book is written for composers, arrangers and MIDI musicians of all levels and will be helpful to video game and multi-media composers, film and television composers, traditional orchestral composers, teachers, orchestration and composition students, instructors, individuals using music notation software and the serious hobbyist. The Guide to MIDI Orchestration is a one-of-a-kind text that provides the information necessary to help composers who demand the best achieve successful and realistic virtual MIDI orchestrations. Please take the time to explore our site and get a better understanding of what the book offers.

The Guide to MIDI Orchestration is a unique book in that there is really not anything else like it available. Paul has used his experience as an accomplished film, television and game composer as well as his experience as a real world orchestrator and his knowledge of virtual orchestration to produce a book that is a great resource for anyone that is composing for orchestra --real or virtual. By responding to questions and comments from readers of his first two books, Paul has produced an easy-to-read resource that is helpful to composers and orchestrators of all levels. The book is used as a required text in an ever growing list of colleges and universities and has garnered glowing reviews in all of the major music trade magazines. Paul's experience has led major orchestral library developers to call on him as resource and a beta tester. This has given him great insight into the libraries and how to best use them to create exceptionally realistic MIDI orchestrations.
