Becoming a Synthesizer Wizard: From Presets to Power User is an exploration into the world of synthesizers which will guide you through:
Understanding Synthesis. The introduction to synthesis, synthesizers, and sound creation in the digital realm will walk you through the basic principles. If you have never looked under the hood of a synthesizer before, this section will get you up and running with a firm grasp on the principles of synthesis.
The Building Blocks of Synthesis. The modules that are available to create and shape sounds, such as oscillators, filters, envelopes, and LFOs, provide the palette from which you can create your sounds. The book looks at each element, the function of each element and its effect on the sound, and how each element interacts with the other elements.
Synthesizer Construction. The book looks at synthesizer construction principles, focusing on the choices that are available from different oscillator and filter types, through to the audio path construction, the modulation that can be applied, and the implications of those choices in terms of flexibility, control, and sound.
Sound Design and Synthesizer Architecture. The principles of synthesis and sound design, are often closely allied to, and highly affected by, a synthesizer's architecture. Throughout the book there is an emphasis on how to create the sound you want and which is right for your music.
