I guess I can add this to the list:



This is a compilation of class handouts I wrote over forty years of teaching synthesis at the University of Iowa and the University of California, Santa Cruz. It has been rewritten for a general audience and 21st century systems. The book breaks down into three sections:
Stuff electronic musicians need to know— mostly definitions of technical terms.
What’s in a synthesizer—descriptions of the modules and what they do.
What to do with your synthesizer—step by step patching from basic beep to music of the Krell.
112 pages, available from Lulu.com. Quickest way to find it is search on “modular synthesizer”

Hi, i'm quite new in this world, so this will be a noob question for sure and i'm sorry for that.

Anyways, i have recently bought a make noise 0 coast and a Mutable Instruments Ripples.

The fact is that when i patch in the waveform from the 0 coast to the Ripples and my headphones to its output, i hear a quite loud white noise in background. I was wondering where does it come from and how can i reduce it.

Just don't do that.

You can only plug headphones in... headphone outputs.

Great to have you in this forum Pelsea.
Is there a way to get a downloadable version of this document from Lulu.com?
I will love to have one but a request from the otherside of the Atlantic doesn't sound like a great option. Or any European distributor? Or did I miss the download link in lulu.com?
Thanks

i made a post on the WOMB forum about a year ago, listing all the online docs i could find relating to synthesis, should be something here helpful:

i can probably answer anything you have specific questions about. there's quite a lot of info on my modular synth in this thread on the womb:

http://thewombforums.com/showthread.php?t=473

also, there are loads of great web sources available for free. for starters try the sound on sound magazine "synth secrets" series, available here:

http://www.soundonsound.com/search?url=%2Fsearch&Keyword=%22synth+secr ets%22&Words=All&Summary=Yes

or the clavia nord lead manual here (relates to all synths though):

http://www.cim.mcgill.ca/~clark/nordmodularbook/nm_book_toc.html

also, you can find copies of the serge gold book:

http://www.carbon111.com/sergebook.zip

and the arp 2600 manual online for free:

http://www.guitarfool.com/ARP2600.html

sam ecoff also has some great free tutorials here:

http://www.samecoff.com/works.html#Tex

the buchla music easel manual is also a great read:

http://www.wavemakers-synth.com/buchla/PaMtEO.zip

if you're really hard core you'll hunt down a copy of allen strange's "electronic music: systems, techniques, controls" which is by far the best text i have ever come across dealing with modular synthesis. if you can't find an old hard copy you can download a .pdf from the publishers for about $15 here:

https://ebooks.primisonline.com/cgi/showebook.cgi?isbn=0390684635

another great reference which you'll probably only find second hand is the the roland "the synthesizer" boxed set of four books.

digisound modular synthesis manual here:

http://www.digisound80.co.uk/digisound/other_documents/files/Guide_to_ Synthesis.pdf

thing is, all these manuals are also great courses on subtractive synthesis itself.

another great online resource here:

http://www.xs4all.nl/~rhordijk/Proto/Index.htm

and if none of these answer your questions, then ask over on www.muffwiggler.com where you'll get a hundred different answers to your question. wink

and whilst all these texts will give you a firm basis in the theory, nothing beats twisting those knobs and hearing what they do!

and even if your synth is modern and digital (or a hardware sampler), all the old subtractive stuff is usually still the basis for the synth engine, so it's all still relevant.

hope that helped!
