Cakewalk synthesizers are some of the most powerful and widely used synthesizers. Now in its second edition, Cakewalk Synthesizers: From Presets to Power User is the comprehensive resource to help users harness the power of these amazing tools and show you how to get the best results from Cakewalk’s complete range of synthesizers. The book begins by diving into the general principles of synthesis and sound creation-covering, among other topics, oscillators, different synthesis methods, filters, envelopes, LFOs, and effects-and then moves on to look at how to make your own sounds, which can be used in your own productions. Separate chapters focus on each synthesizer, looking at its range of uses, the tools that are available, and how to set it up for day-to-day use. The chapters cover Triangle II, PSYN II, Pentagon I, Z3TA+, Session Drummer 2 and Session Drummer 3, Dimension LE and Dimension Pro, Rapture LE and Rapture, and Beatscape, and in the (free) accompanying download package, the chapters cover sfz and sfz+, Cyclone, RXP, DropZone, Square I, DreamStation, Roland GrooveSynth, and TTS-1. In addition, there is a revised and expanded section dedicated to the SFZ format, Cakewalk’s powerful sample format (which has also been adopted by other leading synthesizer developers), and undocumented features in the synthesizers are also highlighted. Chances are you won’t have every synthesizer covered in this book. That’s okay, because the book has something for everyone, whether you own all the synths or only use the free Cakewalk synthesizers. It’s also useful if you want to learn about synthesis. Simply put, this is the ultimate guide to learning about synthesizer programming and to understanding and using all of Cakewalk’s synthesizers!
