A linear circuit is one in which, for a [[Sine wave|sinusoidal]] input voltage of [[frequency]] ''f'', any steady-state output of the circuit (the [[Electric current|current]] through any component, or the [[voltage]] between any two points) is also sinusoidal with frequency ''f''. Note that the output need not be [[Phase (waves)|in phase]] with the input.<ref>''Linear circuit design handbook'' by Hank Zumbahlen, Newnes, 2008, ISBN 0-7506-8703-7</ref>
 
==Getting started==
First gain experience with some simpler audio electronics project(s), and build up the knowledge, skills and equipment.<ref>StackExchange EE, [http://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/6077/building-a-synthesizer-with-no-prior-experience/6085#6085 Building a synthesizer with no prior experience</ref> Developing the circuit is finally not that difficult, but then creating the module or synth as a real physical/mechanical thing is. Making pcbs, making front panels, choosing the right parts which fit the mechanical requirements, etc. So start with some kind of kit based or at least fully instructed project, like something from [http://www.cgs.synth.net/ Catgirl Synth] or [http://www.musicfromouterspace.com/ Music From Outer Space] especially the [http://www.musicfromouterspace.com/analogsynth_new/SOUNDLABMINISYNTH/page1.html Sound Lab Mini-Synth] Once you've managed to build one of these, you can start modifying it and adding your own developments. This way you are rehearsing the mechanical side (which definitely needs to be learned mostly by experience), and you will already learn a lot about electronics.<ref name="sdiy-may-13">The Synth-diy Archive, [http://dropmix.xs4all.nl/pipermail/synth-diy/2013-May/thread.html Hello, and some questions], May 2013</ref>
