Product description


"For anyone interested in synthesizers, Vintage Synthesizers is a fascinating read. Be careful: it may fuel a lust for yet more equipment that would be fun to own." -- Computer Music Journal

"Informally anecdotal, yet packed with great info and historic detail. I couldnt put it down." -- Wendy Carlos, composer and synthesist, Switched-On Bach

"Mark Vails book could be the most entertaining and useful synth book yet." -- Sound On Sound

"The most comprehensive guide on this technology ever written. Highly recommended." -- Mix
