The most clear comprehensible book on substractive synthesis. I liked Rob before it but now I understand more the man he is. A love sharing knowledge man. Buy this book, you'll need it often even if you're not a beginner.

I ordered the book to learn subtractive synthesis and have to admit that the book and the videos are great and easy to understand. I think after finishing I am ready to buy my fist analog synth. Thank you Rob for taking me to the next level!

I watched all 4 DVDs over the course of a couple weeks last Spring. Before watching them, if you asked me about the myriad of software synths I own, I'd have said "I don't really understand most of what they do, and they're all totally different". Now, not only do I understand the individual instruments much better, but - crucially - I can see how it all fits together, and how they all basically follow the same pattern, whether it's a slavishly reproduced Arturia vintage synth, or the latest of Rob's incredibly line of instruments (hell Blue II)! Added bonus, not only is the material incredibly comprehensive and great at reinforcing its principals the more you watch, but the book itself is a retro work of art in and of itself. If you need/want to understand how synths - real or virtual - work, and how to make them work for you, there can be no better investment than this book & DVD combo. A perfect combination, then, of form and function - like everything else this company makes.

Received it today and just watched and read the first chapters of DVD1 and I can already say that I learned a lot from it.This is a must have! I feel like a virgin touched for the very first time and there is another 3.5 hours to go!

Hello Rob, I'm superhappy with The 4 Element Synth! So much detail, well structured, great examples. I learned a lot! Now could it be possible if you create such a great course about FM Synthesis with Blue? That would be awesome, I'd definitely buy that! Greetings, Misha

Dear Rob, I have bought your 4 element synth book and O think it is superb in every way. I will be watching all the DVD's first to get an insight. Then I will watch them again and read the book at the same time. I will then watch them a 3rd time and take loads of notes I will finally watch them a 4th time and practice on several synths that I have. This will give me 40 hours of viewing and learning, what a masterclass. Thank you for such a brilliant book Rob. The DVD's are amongst the most in depth lessons on subtractive synthesis I have ever seen and I will be recommending it to loads of people who are wanting to learn sound design. Will you produce a book with DVD's teaching us how to use all the plugins in explorer 2 with DVD's with lessons and masterclasses like you have with the 4 element synth? Rob, I think your knowledge and understanding of synthesizers and sound synthesis is superb. I just cannot put your book down. I would love you to do a book on the following though: Additive synthesis Granular synthesis Wave-table synthesis FM synthesis This would be a superb follow on from you current book if you published those with DVD lessons as well. Again, superb work. I just love your book. I look forward to your reply. Yours sincerely. Stephen.

Very informative book with a nice layout. A good balance between text and illustrations. This is not the first tutorial or synth book I read, but Rob's point of view makes it very educational for me. I keep the DVD's in a separate DVD box. Maybe an idea to offer a printable DVD cover?
