Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A comprehensive introduction to the common forms of analog and digital sound synthesis in a non-mathematical treatment that even some drummers might understand. Also suitable as an undergraduate textbook for students of music technology, audio engineering, and acoustics. Includes a glossary without pronunciation but with references to further explanation in the text and a section on jargon, often identifying the ten-thousand alternative terms for the same device or phenomena. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
