I'm happy to see that this information is available for anyone who wants to make their own synthesizer. This also gives the reader insight on making a budgeted synthesizer, which is useful to the average hobbyist looking to simply build their own. This is great for learning more about synthesizers because it allows you to be more hands on with the technology and learn exactly how the synthesizer works.
