Published in 2010, Sample Magic's seminal Secrets of House Music Production book became an instant hit, garnering critical acclaim and becoming the must-read production manual of a generation.
Now the team are offering the latest edition of the award-winning book in an expanded iPad edition - featuring all of the original content PLUS 340+ audio examples, 60+ interactive walkthroughs, 38 realtime beat-building grids, 3 full pro-track arrangements, a complete effects directory and much more. It's a classic on steroids: the ultimate house production companion.
Every paragraph from the original book has been ported into one beautiful looking, easy to use App, a scrollable, fully indexed reference manual that covers all aspects of making house music - from creating beats to programming basslines, from arrangement to production, mixing and mastering.
But where the original book could only offer visual walkthroughs, the iPad edition serves up every step of every walkthrough with interactive audio.
- Song arrangements are offered with the original tracks included.
- A unique new section showcases what different effects do.
- A 'perfect mix' table shows how good - and bad - mixes sound.
- House beats are broken down into their constituent elements and then rebuilt, step by step.
No stone has been left unturned to cover the production of house - and the tools needed - in a level of detail never before seen.
With every page lovingly rendered to this new format, this is an App that will be dipped into time and again; an essential studio companion.
