Synthesizer Evolution Synth Book by Oli Freke

My copy of Synthesizer Evolution: From Analogue to Digital (and Back) by Oli Freke arrived the other day. I finally got a chance to take a quick look and take some pics for a post here on MATRIXSYNTH. You might remember the book from this previous post. It's available at Velocity Press, and on Amazon

I have to say, the quality of the book is excellent, it just feels nice in the hands. The book is laid out in the following sections (see the Contents image below): Preface, Introduction, Synthesizers, Drum Machines, Samplers, and Pre-Modern Instruments. Each synth/instrument has a hand drawing by Oli Freke with simple specs and some facts. You can see a page featuring Sequential Circuits below.

One nice surprise was seeing mentioned in the acknowledgements. I had no idea it would be there. So cool. :) Huge thanks to Oli Freke for the mention. This book would make a great stocking stuffer this holiday season. I'm looking forward to relaxing with the book myself over the holidays.

BTW, you can find a link to the book on top of the site for future reference.

Oli Freke also created the SYNTH EVOLUTION poster you can find on his website,

You can find additional posts featuring his work here.
