N00bies, spend some time here!!! Very helpful.

Post by Meat Parade » Wed Oct 12, 2011 12:45 pm

So, I've compiled some synthesis vids/books/texts/experiments that should keep you busy for a while! It definitely helped me, definitely helped people around me and it will definitely help you!!!

If you can get your hands on Allan Strange's Electronic Music: Systems, Techniques and Controls, it's one of the greatest books on synthesis. (I can't find a PDF but there's .DJVU version somewhere online...
You will need to get the DJVU software to open it.
Which is here: http://djvu.org/resources/whatisdjvu.php)

Good initiative! Some of the questions asked by new wigglers are getting a bit tedious. Everyone has to start somewhere but most answers sought for can be found easily, by browsing this forum or googling stuff.

mattysal, I'm no longer @ Moog Audio. Although if you have any questions or want to try out any of the modules in my case, you can message me anytime and I'll be glad to help out. I wouldn't recommend going for info on modules over there unless Fred is working.

newbies should check out this stickied thread too, it has many more great text links:

http://muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12812

it's basically the same as this thread, but much older, much better and with loads more links. unfortunately there's no way to merge threads i'm afraid.

i wish people would search before posting/put things in the right section blah blah blah

should i lock it?

Finally delurking after taking in a lot of wisdom here. I am new to this within the last couple months and today (well yesterday I suppose now) I have taken my first steps into Eurorack systems by purchasing a couple modules. It's the start of something wonderful...

Wow, really useful links. The starting point of my research. 25 years of music making but started here a couple of days ago and i'm now fascinated by synthesis...
