Electronic Music Circuit Guidebook

   (0 reviews)

There are books on organ repair, construction, and design; there are books on electronic equipment used to amplify, distort, reverberate, and otherwise change the quality of sound from some musical instrument. Occasionally these will contain references to music synthesizers and similar exotic circuitry. Some even have a few photographs of the Moog or some other synthesizer.

Few of these books, however, contain the actual circuits used in these mysterious and exotic instruments. And although the list of circuits that could be used is endless, there are few of these that can, when properly patched together, generate a veritable infinity of unusual music and sound effects.

It is this kind of electronic music this book is about. You will find circuits for percussion generators, voltage-controlled oscillators, ring modulators, envelope shapers, and a number of other peripheral items.

Obtaining this material has been no easy task. Each circuit, each bit of information, and each new idea has been carefully assimilated, recorded, and hoarded for the sole purpose of one day writing a book to save others the problems I have had in finding the information.

To me. there is nothing more satisfying than to make sounds of any type come from a speaker; and if you share this interest, this book is for you.
