Hello people!

I am considering buying the Synth book, but I'm not sure what's the "level" of the book. I already have the plug ins book, and I found that book to be really hard to understand, once I don't have all the mathematical background it demands.

How is the math in the synth book? I can understand complex numbers and Fourier Transforms pretty well, but the plug ins book goes a little deeper.

Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place, but I would like to know that in order to not waste my precious money.

thank you all!

Not sure what others will say, but I think the Synth book is more technical than the plugin book. For example, in the FX book I take great care to derive and write out full equations - that doesn't happen in the Synth book. Also, for the filtering stuff there is some analog theory that might also be difficult since it references some calculus stuff. Also, the code itself is just much more intensive, mainly because synth plugins are inherently more complicated, more controls, more complicated signal flow, etc...

That's just my $0.02

Thanks Felipe

I am considering doing a workshop this summer in Miami, maybe 4 days, on VST3/AU programming and/or DSP. Have also been considering Europe but the plans are still very tentative.

All the best

That would be really great! I am currently living in Charlotte, North Carolina. Please, let me know how this workshop idea goes!

Cheers!
