SOS: Synth Secrets

"Synth Secrets" was a fantastic series that ran from 1999-2002 in "Sound on Sound" magazine.
It started with a damn good tutorial for new synthesizer players, moved on to look at some of the more advanced ideas like adative synthesiszers and polyphony and finisshed with many articles analyzing various mathods of synthesizing specific real instruments.
If this were available as abook I for one would buy it straiught away.
The last article was almost ten years ago, but the subjects covered are equally applicable to todays software synths as they were to their hardware ancestors years ago.
If you like programming synthesizser or investigating some new possibilities then this page could be you gateway to inspiration. That could be a good song title that. Maybe not.
