As I sit here reading Sams\' Teach Yourself Adobe Premiere 6.5 in 24 Hours (I got an OEM Premiere 6.0 included with a Pinnacle DV500+ Video Capture system with a very slim non-informative manual), I wonder why no third party company has written a comprehensive Gigastudio book.
What would it cost Tascam to let someone else do this? A single copy of Gigastudio? I emailed Scott Garrigus a while back (he\'s written some great books on Cakewalk Sonar and Sonic Foundry\'s Sound Forge, two other programs I can\'t live without) and while polite, answered that he really hasn\'t taken a look at the software. Maybe if Tascam approached him we could see a \"Gigastudio Power!\" book.
I know of Dave Govett\'s Gigastudio Mastery Tutorial CD\'s, but I\'m one of those old-fashioned book readers. (I like curling up in bed and reading a few chapters every once in a while.)
I\'m sure the developers could \"loan\" out libraries for the author to work with while writing the book, maybe even donate small freebie libraries for inclusion on a CD that would come with the book (G-Town and SAMS Trumpet and NS drumkit come to mind.)
All-in-all, I think this is a very feasible idea, and I\'m sure everyone here would drop $30-$40 on a nicely written 300 or so page book dedicated to our favorite program. I bet we\'d even volunteer plenty of information to the author.
Just a thought.
If someone could copy and paste this to the Tascam forum, I\'d appreciate it. I posted it on there a while back, and no one responded, but maybe times have changed and there are more users who feel the way I do.
