Features
Vintage Synthesizers - 2nd Edition by : Mark Vail


This new edition is the ultimate exploration of the upstart instruments – and their unique analog growls and screams – that paved the way over the last four decades for today's fast-paced electronic music world. Explores the development of the modern synthesizer from 1962 on; with in-depth interviews with pioneering designers Bob Moog and Alan R. Pearlman of Moog Music and ARP Instruments fame. These and other designers reveal their initial ideas; reflect on their hits and misses; and discuss how star performers have used their creations. Histories of groundbreaking instruments examine modular; analog & digital synths and samplers; plus more unusual instruments like the Mellotron. Noted synthesist Keith Emerson and composer Wendy Carlos (“Switched-On Bach”) offer musical insights and performance techniques. Includes fully updated pricing and production info; and more than 200 photos and a stunning color section.
