Here at RCBC we believe in guaranteeing easily accessible, affordable content to benefit the learning experience of our students, enriching them academically, and professionally, in their chosen career path.

Think of a Lib Guide as a digital filing cabinet, full of tools that can do everything from enhance supplementary instruction to provide relevant, topical resources that will benefit a student’s prospective job hunt and professional development well beyond the classroom.

Lib Guides are part of a grant-funded RCBC initiative pertaining to freely available Open Educational Resources (OERs), which aim to change higher education into a comprehensive and diverse experience that works to serve students and ensure success is always within their reach.

Some of the OERs that RCBC welcomes you to peruse are subject-related study guides, the contact information of a number of national professional organizations and associations, links to such relevant institutions as the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service, as well as a multitude of free, digital textbooks on topics such as economics, investing, banking, and more.

The MIDI Manual 4e

The MIDI Manual: A Practical Guide to MIDI within Modern Music Production, Fourth Edition, is a complete reference on MIDI. Written by David Miles Huber (a 4x Grammy-nominated musician, producer and author), this best-selling guide provides clear explanations of what MIDI 1.0 and 2.0 are, acting as a guide for electronic instruments, the DAW, MIDI sequencing and how to make best use of them. You will learn how to set up an efficient MIDI system and how to get the most out of your production room and ultimately ... your music. Packed full of useful tips and practical examples on sequencing and mixing techniques, The MIDI Manual also covers in-depth information on system interconnections, controllers, groove tools, the DAW, synchronization and more. For the first time, the MIDI 2.0 spec is explained in light of the latest developments and is accompanied with helpful guidelines for the long-established MIDI 1.0 spec and its implementation chart. Illustrated throughout with helpful photos and screenshots, this is the most readable and clearly explained book on MIDI available.
