Best $300.00 I spent regarding SDIY. More than a little overwhelming. You
can buy the Primer on its own if memory serves. A very good presentation
into how this stuff works.

~~ EN is the Bible.  Whatcha talkin' about...   :-)
~~ 
~~ If the $300 scares you, go here and download some freebees:
~~ http://electronotes.netfirms.com/free.htm
~~ Also the way Bernie works is you can buy thing in increments
~~ up to the total $300.  So you could buy $50 of the latest EN's
~~ and decide if you want the older ones...
~~ 
~~ Maybe overwhelming for someone without an electronics background but
~~ then again many of us have such backgrounds because we read over it so
~~ many times...

~~ My $0.02 (CDN) worth:
~~ 
~~ For general analog synthesizer info, IMHO the best book I've seen is the
~~ one
~~ by Devarahi.  After that, probably the Roland set of four little
softcover
~~ books I bought when I was about 20 years old.
~~ 
~~ Honestly, I get more out of electronics books than books about electronic
~~ music.  For synth circuits in general, my most important influence has
~~ been
~~ websites, starting with Ray Wilson's amazing Music From Outer Space.  I
~~ spent six months lurking there before I even realized there were other
~~ sites
~~ worth looking at.  Ken Stone's Catgirl Synth site is also awesome, but
not
~~ as "tutorial" as Ray's site, and therefore not really as useful to the
~~ total
~~ noob.
~~ 
~~ People say that Electronotes is useful, but I've always been too cheap to
~~ plunk down the $300 required to get it.  I've managed to live without it.
~~ In any case, I have a feeling that a lot of the stuff in the most useful
~~ parts is a) probably a bit obsolete, and b) thoroughly covered in other
~~ web
~~ and print resources (like Chamberlin, for example).
~~ 
~~ So, my advice: spend some quality time with a few of electronics
textbooks
~~ (Malvino and Horowitz & Hill have served me well, plus a couple of good
~~ books on opamps like Coughlin & Driscoll, and maybe a book on digital
~~ design), and also have a look at some circuits on MFOS or CGS and try
~~ building some simple stuff yourself, from scratch.  You'll be building
~~ your
~~ own modular synth before you know it.
