just got into synth building… very cool stuff
i was wondering if anyone has put together a database of downloadable synths? and/or know of anywhere in particular that i could search for such a request…
i.e. choose your sound; download one if available kinda thing?
Not sure about the synth database. What you are asking for is probably a some kind of user library with tag navigation. Reaktor has one as well as other products of the same company. In fact N**ve In**ts managed this concept quite well, before they killed Kore.
The book mentioned is quite nice, however author is focused on how to deconstruct the sound and recreate it using typical analog/VA synth. There is not so much information about the sound or synth design in general. Examples provided are also somewhat uninteresting. However, I bought the book and also T-shirt & mouse pad (both suck) to support the author. Seems like he prints the book in his own basement.
