Csound for Newbies

I want to share with you a promising new site called Csound for Newbies.

“The purpose of this site is to help the feckless, the despondent, the hopeless and the overwhelmed musician, programmer, and/or composer who wants to learn about the Csound audio and music software system.”

I have no clue as to who runs this site. Though it appears we share the common goal of helping those who wish to learn more about the language. Csound is cursed with an initially steep learning curve, and it’s great to see a blog dedicated to addressing this issue.

The place is filled with photos and videos of synthesizers in action. I visit this site at least a few times a week, as there is almost always something new to look at or read. I’m sure it won’t be long before I start stealing links from Matrixsynth.

Matrixsynth, simply put is a blog on everything synth. I started the site on July 20th of 2005 as a means of keeping track of all the interesting tidbits I came across in the synthesizer community. I’m a synth hobbyist. I track intersting news, samples, images, trivia and more, including all the manufacturers such as Moog, Yamaha, Roland, Korg, Alesis, Clavia, and Access along with the boutique modular synth shops like MOTM, MacBeth Studios, Cwejman, Doepfer, Analog Soultions, etc.
