Synthtopia + Ableton ‘Making Music’ Book Giveaway

making-music-topWhen Ableton published Making Music – 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers, they sold out of the first printing almost immediately.

But, while it’s currently ‘out of stock’ at Ableton’s site, we’ve got a copy to give away.

Making Music is a 340-page hard-bound volume, by Dennis DeSantis, that looks at the most common problems that can prevent you from moving forward with a piece of music, and offers concrete methods for solving them.
