The Complete Guide to Synthesizers, Sequencers and Drum Machines

Synthesist Espen Kraft shared this video review of the vintage book The Complete Guide to Synthesizers, Sequencers and Drum Machines, by Dean Friedman.

Kraft notes that the book ‘had colossal impact on me in 1985, as a young teenager looking to buy my first synth. I read it for hours each day, memorizing each word about the synths he goes through in the book.”

“It’s so much fun going through this book again,” he adds. “Many of the synths that were very new at the time the book was written have since became classics.”:
