    Probably the greatest book out there for getting started in electronics Within a week of getting this, I went from knowing literally nothing about electronics to breadboarding oscillator and effect circuits, building a little light theremin, hacking a toy pager to make it go crazy, and much...

    Another book I am familiarizing myself with and drawing up a project list from, since i have done nothing from this book i cannot give much of a review other than if your dad wore birkenstocks and explained how to make weird electronic instruments to you the book.

    One of the most helpful books I have ever read, speaking as an artist, musician, and all around fan of the avant guarde

    A very enjoyable read and hands on introduction to tinkering with electronics with the aim of making music, no previous knowledge required In fact it manages to hold off the theory until about half of the book, where the reader is first introduced to Ohm s law And that s all the theory there is, really This isn t to say that it s not a useful book for people who already know the theory I, for one, was very excited to learn about where to find parts like piezo disks to salvage and how to use them as contact mikes as well as how to use digital ICs to build analog oscillators, build simple ...

    A really good beginner s guide to building electronic instruments Requires no previous knowledge of electrical components Intentionally steers away from theory and overly scientific explanations, though there s a resources appendix for those wishing to know The stated goal is to get the reader making noises as quickly as possible, and it delivers Each project builds on the last, and scattered throughout are sidebars about artists musicians who have used the technology in each chapter The text instructions on sol...

    There are a lot of fun electronics projects ideas here, most geared towards older electronics that don t have integrated components I think most of them would result less in musical instruments than noisemakers, but there s an approximately infinite supply of obsolete electronics out there G...

    Some interesting ideas as well as a reasonable introduction to some electronic theory, though there are some concepts that look interesting, but are side stepped the section on pre amps, in particular The focus is much on noise making devices than the title mi...

    This book is awesome It covers a wide range of topics in the area of its title Very pedagogic, partly due to a superb and sometimes hilarious prose.
