Hi Markus, nice list of links
thank you!
I know that most of this books are available on pdf but i prefer the old
paper way! :-)

- Electronic music circuits is on my wish list
- I know well the work of Ray Wilson, it was one of my starting point,
years ago i bought from Ray some kits, and i have all the material to build
a synthlab but never had the time...
- I have seen Thomas Henry's books on Lulu, they are interesting but I
would rather they were all in one book (is Thomas in this list?) it's video
is available somewhere online?
- The reprint collection is very very interesting
- I have the Chamberlin books, it cost me 50 euros and is full of
annotations but is pure gold!
- Mu:zines is a great website, a lot of effort in it, and i think i have
almost all this magazine

- Digisound is copyright protected? it's a system that I really like and
would love to build

my suggestion (or book that i have)
- Delton T. Horn - The Synthesizer (i have the italian version "Il
Sintetizzatore", i don't know if is the same as the english version)
- F.C. Judd - Electronics in music (arrived today, very cool!)
- i have bought this books https://www.dataton.com/shop/the-early-synth-days
deserve very euro! is a very nice book, with many photos and many
electronic details of this synth that was the first product of the dataton
(which now produces other things)
- Arduino for Musician

and i have many other synths (non electronics) books

Incoming books (ordered) The new world of electronic music ;: A practical
book that gives the basic principles of sound, acoustics, electricity,
magnetism, recording techniques. the concepts and functions of the
synthesizer Walter Sear

Electronic Music and Musique Concrete (Paperback) F.C. Judd

Computers and Music: An Introduction R. A. Penfold

Electronic Musical Instruments Norman Crowhurst Synthesizer & Electronic
Keyboard Handbook Kindersley, Dorling

My main source are abebooks and amazon
