Synth DIY Wiki is your friend.

Go here: https://sdiy.info/wiki/

Type "Thomas Henry" into the search box.

Scroll down to "Papers and Articles"

Look at the "On Web" column, click on "Electronic Music Circuits: The Reprints, Vol 1" then on the next page click on "The_Reprint_Collection_by_Thomas_Henry_CC_BY_NC.pdf"

Enjoy the rabbit hole!

Hi all,
the no post purge made me step forward and stop just reading. So just to let you know im here, synth obsessed and electronics mad. Would like to be able to help out with any builders out there and people wanting to learn as well as writing tunes if any body is up for it .

thanks for all the great resources, ppl.
i'm currently teaching myself electrical engineering using the great khan academy.
i don't know linear algebra too well and i don't know any calculus, but it should be ok just to get an overview.
https://www.khanacademy.org/science/ele ... gineering/

if you haven't used khan academy before, you should check it out. it has lots and lots of material on maths and science presented in a simple format using voice and drawing on a black board. like this:

Thanks, Alfrede. I tried the link but still unable to download. Tried Chrome and Safari.The Electronotes link to the Google drive isn't working either. I would pay for a copy if I could find one.

I’ve built many guitar pedals and ma familiar with Eagle PCB. I want to get started building Eurorack stuff. I need a parts library does someone have a link? Speaking of which where do you source parts?

I might give KiCAD a try. If someone ha a link to resources for that pass those along!
