    Book details


Software Synthesizers is the definitive guide to the fast-growing field of computer-based musical instruments. With today's software and powerful home computers, bold and exciting new sounds are just a few mouse-clicks away. However, finding the right software for your needs, understanding how to install it and keep it running smoothly, and getting the most music out of it can be a major challenge. Software Synthesizers starts with hands-on reviews of the leading programs for Windows and the Macintosh. Editor and author Jim Aikin, widely known as an expert in music technology, then provides step-by-step information on how synthesizers work their magic and how software-based synths integrate with other computer music tools. The book covers both stand-alone and plug-in synthesizers and samplers, and reveals the secrets of various types of synthesis, including subtractive, FM, granular, additive, and physical modeling.

During his 25 years as a writer and editor at Keyboard magazine, Jim Aikin has become known around the world as an expert on synthesizers and music technology. He also composes music in his PC-based home studio using a variety of synthesizers.
