Whilst I was looking for the link to Nic’s book I noticed that there’s a new version out this year. It appears to have been updated in January. Anyway, if you don’t know this book and like the idea of tinkering with wires and circuits and making noises you should really take a look.
But beware, you go down a path that leads to strangeness …

Still reading this book from Rob Papen quite slowly. The more I read it the more I think it’s actually well worth a read. Whilst for many it might be just a refresher if you’re not familiar with the principles of synthesis it’s a really good detailed learn.
I’ve been waiting for this book for a while now and now it’s available on iBooks. Here’s what to expect:
Dive hands-on into the tools, techniques, and information for making your own analog synthesizer. If you’re a musician or a hobbyist with experience in building electronic projects from kits or schematics, this do-it-yourself guide will walk you through the parts and schematics you need, and how to tailor them for your needs. Author Ray Wilson shares his decades of experience in synth-DIY, including the popular Music From Outer Space (MFOS) website and analog synth community.
At the end of the book, you’ll apply everything you’ve learned by building an analog synthesizer, using the MFOS Noise Toaster kit. You’ll also learn what it takes to create synth-DIY electronic music studio. Get started in the fun and engaging hobby of synth-DIY without delay.
With this book, you’ll learn:
- The differences between analog and digital synthesizers
- Analog synthesizer building blocks, including VCOs, VCFs, VCAs, and LFOs
- How to tool up for synth-DIY, including electronic instruments and suggestions for home-made equipment
- Foundational circuits for amplification, biasing, and signal mixing
- How to work with the MFOS Noise Toaster kit
