Hi, I'm mainly interested in producing electronic music (breakcore, dubstep and so on). I have a decent knowledge of music theory and I can create not-so-bad drum patterns, but when it comes to create or manipulate a sound (for a drum kit, or a synth) I just procede changing parameters randomly, applying effects and so on.
I'm looking for some good book about sound synthesis. Recently I've bought the Z3ta synth and reading the manual is only useful if you actually know when to use what to obtain a certain sound.
The same goes for music production. Anything that explains compression, equalization and all of this stuff.
Thank you very much, Carlo
