I ignored this book for a long time, expecting it to be an out-of-date guide to getting bleeps from ’70s and ’80s microprocessor chips.
In fact, it’s a very readable textbook about all kinds of sound synthesis and generation. A useful section on the theory of sound – the impact of different waveshapes on the human ear – leads into a detailed guide to modular synths.
The section on algorithmic and random composition is particularly good, with a deep analysis of the Triadex Muse. There is an extract from this section in the reading list on random sequencers I put together for people building the Turing Machine sequencer.
