Personal Computers and Music: The State of the Art

While the concept of the personal computer is already relatively old, the concept of the personal-computr music studio is relatively new. First, we describe the elements in a microcomputer-controlled setup. Next, the stages of turning sound into music are examined. Finally, music applications of personal computers are classified, and commercially available examples of each type of application are examined in greater detail. One sidebar contrasts making music five years ago with atypical day in a home microcomputer- controlled music studio in 1987; a second provides a glossary of music and computer terms. A listing of "Where to Go for More Information" is included.
