=== Electronotes, ed. Bernie Hutchins ===
[http://electronotes.netfirms.com Electronotes] is a newsletter-like publication produced by Bernie Hutchins, covering technical details of music synthesis and sound processing: back-issues up to the very first issue in 1972 are available, and the complete set is a rich repository of circuits, techniques and ideas. The 'everything' package is a ''huge'' amount of information - it comb-binds into about 30 useful-sized volumes, and occupies over 18 inches of shelf space! For those not wanting to go to the expense of getting everything, the ''Musical Engineer's Handbook'' and the ''Builder's Guide and Preferred Circuits Collection'' is a good compromise. There is a fairly simple [http://www.timstinchcombe.co.uk/synth/Electronotes_EN_index.txt index of Electronotes here], which may give an indication of the totality of subjects covered. (The index covers up to August 2003.)
