The Electronic Musician's Bible, 21. Juni 2000
I first came across this book at university, when faced with the daunting task of making a software synthesizer for a course project.
The lecturer of the course admitted to me that he had based the course on this book, so naturally I found a copy. After reading it for 5 minutes I ordered a copy, because I knew without a doubt this was the book that would carry me through the rest of my studies. Interestingly, anyone else who has ever seen my copy has gone and bought themselves without much delay!
What the book offers is threefold: 1. A good introduction to MIDI. 2. A broad spectrum of signal processing techinques (including SFX). 3. A fast repository of synthesis ideas.
It even explains the fundamentals of the Fast Fourier Transform optimisation.
A lot of math has been replaced by flow charts, and this is means that it can explain the ideas to a wider range of people (and not just mathematicians).
The real selling point of this book is that it is, ultimately, the best possible mix of scope and depth of the subject of musical synthesis.
At 1234 Pages, it's also good value for money!
