I have been writing about music technology and music production, digital audio and digital video, multimedia and the Internet since 1988, when I wrote my first articles for Keyboard in Japan and for Sound On Sound here in the UK.


In the year 2000 I started writing books about music technology and music production for Focal Press.

My first book, 'Pro Tools 5.1 for Music Production', was the first book available about Pro Tools TDM systems and has been a great success. Since then I have written three more books about Pro Tools, a book about plug-ins and virtual instruments, and another about popular MIDI + Audio software. My most recent book, Pro Tools 8, is currently available from Amazon and all good book sellers.Sample book chapters can be downloaded here.
