    Pass it by...

    When a book calls itself a "dictionary", that implies a fairly comprehensive listing of the terms in a field -- in this case "music technology". Unfortunately, this dictionary is biased towards specific software, and totally neglects anything not in the author's particular area of interest. "Pro Tools" terms are covered extensively, but you will searh in vain for information about Passport; Encore; Musictime; etc.

    If you're looking for a Pro Tools glossary, this book might fit the bill. But if you need an actual -dictttionary- of music technology, look elsewhere.
