 The Rosegarden Companion, DSSI, and more

This article consists of three reviews: The book The Rosegarden Companion, SSI (the Disposable Software Synthesizer Interface), another book Notes from the Metalevel, and some other stuff.

"I confess that this is the latest distraction, but it's already got me avoiding other necessary tasks. D. Michael McIntyre has been writing The Rosegarden Companion for two years, and it's easy to tell that it's been a labor of love. The author's presentation style is informal and friendly, and he definitely is knowledgeable about his subject. For those of you don't know about Rosegarden, it is an integrated audio/MIDI sequencer with advanced features, including extensive system control and impressive notation facilities. The program has been in development since the early 1990s, beginning with a GUI based on the Xaw widget set and coming at last to a beautiful Qt interface. But Rosegarden is not only a pretty face, and McIntyre is an excellent guide to what's behind the program's good looks."
