There are so many great tutorials spreaded all over the Internet. There are also many beginners who want to learn something about synth programming. So ? It’s time for some good tutorials in PDF Format 🙂
First tutorial called “The Essential Guide To… Subtractive synthesis” covers all the basics needed to start programming your own synth – doesn’t matter if it’s real or VSTi (as an example CM101 is used). You’ll learn basics about oscillators (and waveforms), envelopes (amplitude, filter), filter, LFO etc.
