comment Solfa to sing in a chord
"Conventionally, the bass instrument or voice will take the root note. The other voices will take other notes. The highest voice often handles the overall melody. But none of these are hard rules."

comment Why does software-synthesized MIDI music sound so bad?
"In MIDI, program 1 will always be a piano, 7 is always a harpsichord, 49 is always a string ensemble, " -- this is "General MIDI". More, um, generally, you can assign any instrument (or non-instrument!) you like to any channel.

comment How does one place a beat 'on' a given note/rest value?
@GregJackson note that the book quote doesn't use the word "beat", it uses the word "element". The questioner has used "beat" afterwards, but it seems from context that he means "note" or "sound" or "sample".

I'd go further and say that even if you're not working with a grid, you would use this language. "I'm going to put a kick drum on every beat, and I'm going to put a snare on the twos and fours" is something a live drummer might say (OK, I've said "put" not "place" but these are the same)

comment Why are pure tones depicted as sine waves?
"A sine wave and its corresponding cosine will cancel each other out." -- er, "sin(x) + cos(x) is not a flat graph", nor is "sin(x) - cos(x)"
