Cakewalk Synthesizers: From Presets to Power User by Simon Cann

Over the last few years cakewalk has expanded significantly in the software synthesizer market, particularly with the purchase of leading soft synth company rgcAudio. Cakewalk is now responsible for some of the most powerful and most widely used software synthesizers on the market. This book shows users how to operate and get the best results from Cakewalk?s bundled and stand-alone software synthesizers. After introducing each of the featured synthesizers and discussing the main intended purpose for each one, the book dives into the general theory around creating sounds with the featured synthesizers including oscillators, samples, frequency modulation, wave shaping, phase modulation, ring modulation, and how these sources can be deployed. From there, individual chapters focus on each distinct synthesizer, it?s range of uses, what tools are available with it, and how to set it up for day-to-day use. The book begins by delving into the easier to use synths that come bundled with Cakewalk products (Velocity, nPulse, Cyclone, RXP, DS864, PSYN II, Pentagon I) and then moves on to more advanced standalone synths (z3ta+, Dimension, Dimension Pro, Rapture). In addition to learning about all of the different synthesizers and how to use them in your productions, the book also discusses filters, envelopes, effects, the sfz format, how to make sounds and creating patches, and much, much more. This is the ultimate guide to understanding and using all of Cakewalk?s synthesizers.
