A couple of Sound on Sound articles

I can link to one, but not the other, unfortunately.

All the way back in May 1997, Sound on Sound magazine (incidentally, my favo(u)rite music technology magazine) there was a good article called “MAKING WAVES: Sound Synthesis On A Computer: Part 2”. Although the title was software synthesis, the Kyma is not really software but required a huge expensive DSP engine called the Capybara.

There was also a good mention of Csound in the December 2003 “Sounding Off” column by Jim Aikin, but I can’t link to that one.

For old timers, it’s interesting to look at the chart of “Software Synths at a Glance” in the first part of the article

and observe that few if any of them are around anymore!
