http://eamusic.dartmouth.edu/~book/MATCpages/tableofcontents.html

This web-book is intended as a "user-friendly" introduction to music and computers for upper division secondary and college students. By organizing a presentation around interactive visual and sonic examples, we hope to provide a resource and guide for those just beginning to look at the field of computer music, as well as for more advanced computer composers who might benefit from a fresh insight. Our web-book can be used as a text for a one term or semester course, or, more in keeping with its design, as a "module" inside of a larger curriculum.

http://www.midi.org/about-midi/aboutmidi3.shtml

MIDI is a technology that represents music in digital form. Unlike other digital music technologies such as MP3 and CDs, MIDI messages contain individual instructions for playing each individual note of each individual instrument. So with MIDI it is actually possible to change just one note in a song, or to orchestrate and entire song with entirely different instruments. And since each instrument in a MIDI performance is separate from the rest, its easy to "solo" (listen to just one) individual instruments and study them for educational purposes, or to mute individual instruments in a song so that you can play that part yourself.

http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synthesizer

The synthesizer is a type of electronic musical instrument designed to produce artificially generated sound, using techniques such as additive, subtractive, FM and physical modelling synthesis to create sounds.


Synthesizers create sounds by direct manipulation of electrical currents which are then used to cause vibrations in the diaphragms of loudspeakers, headphones, etc. This synthesized sound is contrasted with recording of natural sound, where the mechanical energy of a sound wave is transformed into a signal which will then be converted back to mechanical energy on playback (though sampling significantly blurs this distinction).

Can I Learn On A Synthesizer?

I have had beginning students or parents of beginning students ask if they need an actual piano, or would a synthesizer suffice for practicing.

"World´s most beautiful synth? The wondrous WAVE from Waldorf"

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.
http://www.unofficial.waldorf-wave.de/

"Speaker destroying bottom end. The best user interface this side of the 1980s. Very unique sounding and versatile. Everything the Matrix 12 should have been. The synth I would want to be left stranded on a desert Island with."
"I can't think of any synth I love more. It has its flaws, but the perfect synth has never been invented. Waldorf was extraordinarily brave to make a product which must be very difficult to manufacture. They spared no expense in making it a professional instrument. It is quiet, clean, full, beautiful ,and oddly enough easy to use (even though it is a very complex instrument). It is the only Polyphonic synth that comes close to a modular in flexibility, and like a modular, you always think of new things to do with it."

Oberheim Xpander
http://www.soundofmusic.se/synth/xpander/xpander.htm
Oberheim Xpander is not like any other synthesizers. The look is like a Matrix12, but without keyboard. And the Matrix12 is two Xpander and a keyboard. The patches are compatible between these two synths. The Xpander is one of the greatest analog monsters with sharp jaws and real slash - more wicked than all other analog synths.

ARP Synthesizers

ARP Instruments, Inc. existed from 1969 to 1981 and produced some of the most wonderfully musical synthesizers ever.  I've always loved these instruments, they were clearly built by some very talented and clever folks.
