The Fundamentals of Synthesizer Programming provides an introduction on
how to program a synthesizer for creating music in the studio and on stage. Used as a textbook for the
introductory electronic music course at the Department of Recording Industry at Middle Tennessee State
University, it covers the components and controls, of both hardware and software synthesizers, that are
used to create a patch on a typical synth. Concepts are explained thoroughly with block diagramming, and
practical examples are given with Reason Studios Subtractor and a Moog Voyager.
