A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding, Programming, Playing, and Recording the Ultimate Electronic Music Instrument Includes a companion website Explains the important developments throughout the history of the synthesizer Describes how engineers, musicians, and visionaries have advanced its capabilities Gives important practical tips on choosing a synthesizer Reveals the deep creativity and imagination of those who work with synthesizers Thoroughly illustrated with over 350 imagesElectronic music instruments werent called synthesizers until the 1950s, but their lineage began in 1919 with Russian inventor Lev Sergeyevich Termen´s development of the Etherphone, now known as the Theremin. From that point, synthesizers have undergone a remarkable evolution from prohibitively large mid-century models confined to university laboratories to the development of musical synthesis software that runs on tablet computers and portable media devices.Throughout its history, the synthesizer has always been at the forefront of technology for the arts. In The Synthesizer: A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding, Programming, Playing, and Recording the Ultimate Electronic Music Instrument, veteran music technology journalist, educator, and performer Mark Vail tells the complete story of the synthesizer: the origins of the many forms the instrument takes; crucial advancements in sound generation, musical control, and composition made with instruments that may have become best sellers or gone entirely unnoticed; and the basics and intricacies of acoustics and synthesized sound. Vail also describes how to successfully select, program, and play a synthesizer; what alternative controllers exist for creating electronic music; and how to stay focused and productive when faced with a room full of instruments. This one-stop reference guide on all things synthesizer also offers tips on encouraging creativity, layering sounds, performance, composing and recording for film and television, and much more.Readership: Existing synthesists and newcomers to the industry; teachers, professors, and students in universities, colleges, high schools, and middle schools who are interested in electronic music; and manufacturers, dealers, consultants, journalists, authors, owners, performers, composers, improvisers, engineers, producers, and recordists in the electronic-music and electro-acoustic industries.The specification in this catalogue, including without limitation price, format, extent, number of illustrations, and month of publication, was as accurate as possible at the time the catalogue was compiled.
