Since its initial release in 1997, Paul Gilreath's The Guide to MIDI Orchestration has been the premiere text on creating realistic emulations of a symphony orchestra using samplers and computer recording techniques. Now in its fourth edition, The Guide to MIDI Orchestration explains how to merge this ever-expanding technology with the artistry of orchestration to produce the most lifelike recordings possible. The book is written for composers, arrangers, and MIDI musicians of all levels, and will be helpful to game composers, film and television composers, traditional orchestral composers, teachers, instructors, and the serious hobbyist. Highlights of the book include:
A comprehensive guide to MIDI orchestration beginning with a broad overview of traditional instrumentation and orchestration and then moving into sequencing techniques, effects plugins, mixing, and virtual instruments. The diagrams of effective voicing structures for each family of the orchestra are helpful references.
Another good MIDI orchestration book by Andrea Pejrolo, music tech professor at Berklee College of Music, covering traditional orchestration as well as modern production techniques. Some topics include MIDI messages, sequencing and mixing techniques for each section of the orchestra, and how to use performance techniques like portamento, pizzicato, harmonics, and mutes.
