Book Recommendation: Keyboard Presents Synth Gods

Ernie Rideout, former editor in chief of Keyboard magazine, got to spend a lot of quality time with many of the greatest synth players, synth designers, and synthesizers of all time. He collected 20 interviews from the Keyboard archives, all summarized in this book.

Keyboard Presents Synth Gods spotlights leading visionaries who changed the course of music history and who have one sure thing in common: they’d hardly ever use a preset sound (as Ernie Rideout notes).
