Teenage synth lust revisited.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Complete Synthesizer (Paperback)
Now if memory serves me, i was around 13 or 14 tops when i came by this. I have to admit to one and all, i may have obtained this from the local library without using a ticket. Naughty i know, i have prayed for my salvation ever since.
now then, it is a brilliant book to reach for if everything regarding synthesis confuses you to the core. it aptly describes the principles of synthesis and takes on additive, subtractive, pwm , fm and more besides. Taking into account its age, this is now more a book of nostalgia than a useful tool in todays app driven age. That aside, i loved reading how 32k bytes was a lot of memory lol
It has a ton of black and white pics of gear which if we all had now, would settle us into early retirement.
Its not massively comprehensive but its kinda like a dummys guide to synthesis in its writing style and how far it breaks down the dark art. if you are revisiting your teenage years and can grab acopy of this like i did for under a fiver, then you haven't done too badly.
