Perfect synth Nerd heaven
on 15 May 2014
Lets address a few points here. a few people out there dont like the paper stock. well i love it. its a off white old school grade and the pictures are all B&W. i knew this wasnt going to be a glossy almanac of synths. it really harks back to the synth books of the 80's like the Crosbie series.
It covers a LOT of ground from the forerunners of the synth universe to the current soft synth developers of whom i work with quite a few myself.
A book such as this, needs to cover the modern take as well as engaging with the historic past. but i wil concede the book titling is a tad misleading. i already knew what to expect. but it promises to teach you about programming etc of which it really doesnt.
If you spend 2 mins in the preview on amazon, you can flick through most of the pages and clearly see what kind of book it is, so its not rocket science. i got this from my wife for my birthday. im a fulltime composer and this is pure busmans holiday at its finest i really enjoyed it. if your only has room for full colour ad you need to be taught how to use a synth, this isnt your book.
