Welcome to the Music Producer’s Guide to Synthesisers, the complete guide to the exciting world of softsynths, brought to you by the experts at Computer Music magazine.
Thanks to the enormous processing power brought to us by the latest generations of Macs and PCs, software synthesisers are now capable of extraordinary sonic feats, and can now produce the kinds of sounds never dreamt of in the hardware realm. That said, much of the development of softsynths over the years has been to emulate classic synths, so we’ll be looking at both strands of synth in this special – classic emulations and all-new sonic explorers. On the first front we take the bull by the horns and dare to go where few have gone before, by actually comparing softsynths that emulate classic synths with the original hardware. We look at three such iconic synths – the Minimoog, ARP Odyssey and Roland SH-101 – and their software equivalents in our main feature on page 14. We also look at some of the ‘less classic’ hardware synths of days gone by (on page 92), and show you how to emulate these more curious synths in software. Onto the newer types of softsynths, and we have all sorts of hands-on workshops showing you some of the basics of synthesis, and lifting the lid on some of the more interesting features of modern classics like Serum and Massive

Why does pricing vary from country to country?
All items purchased include the cost of delivery within the price. As the cost of postage can vary quite significantly between different regions and mailing locations, this is reflected in the price.
How do you guarantee lowest prices?
Magazinesdirect.com is owned and run by Future Publishing Limited who publish all the magazines on the site. As such, we can guarantee our prices are lower than you will find elsewhere.
What is a 'rolling subscription'?
A rolling subscription provides continuous service until you choose to cancel. This means that you'll benefit from uninterrupted deliveries and you'll never miss an issue again. If you change your mind, you can cancel the auto-renewal at any time and you'll only receive the remaining issues for which you've already paid.
Can I buy a subscription if I do not live in the UK?
Yes, just make sure you select the relevant country above. All prices include packaging and delivery charges.
Can I buy this item as a gift?
Yes, all products can be delivered to the address of your choosing. The only requirement is that the delivery country must match the country selected when you add something to your basket. You can choose the specific delivery address as part of the checkout process.
How long will it take for my subscription to be delivered?
Estimated delivery dates for the first issue are displayed during the checkout process. All subsequent issues should be received around the 'on-sale date' of the magazine except for international deliveries where it can take an additional 14 days (for UK based magazines) and 30 days (for US based magazines).
Yes. Subscriptions are automatically set to start with the next available issue to be published, but this can be changed (subject to stock) at the basket and checkout steps. Between October and December each year, we automatically set gift subscriptions to begin in the New Year to avoid spoiling a Christmas surprise, but again this can be changed at the basket and checkout steps if you wish.
How do I download a gift card?
This can be done via the 'thank you' page once you've completed your purchase. Here you can schedule a card to be sent via email or you can print it out to hand over yourself. An alternative design is also available for downloading via www.mymagazine.co.uk, where you can also manage other areas of your subscription.
