This text is optional. Especially for those people who are not going to seriously work with sound, but want only in their free time to play the synthesizer and make some music for their pleasure. In principle, you can quite easily use a computer for musical purposes without knowing the basics of acoustics, electrical engineering and other applied disciplines.

Without this, you will not be able to get a conscious result, and in the future to creatively use programs avoiding template solutions. And this requires at least an understanding of the basic laws of acoustics. Therefore, gather your thoughts and start reading – we tried to make your task as easy as possible and, as much as possible, simplified the story.
By the way, many Western musicians do not particularly bother to study equipment or, especially, some suspicious fundamentals of physics, and rely entirely on technicians, sound engineers and producers.
