What is an oscillator? What is an control voltage? What is love? (Baby Don’t Hurt Me)
The first hurtle to overcome when getting into almost any new hobby is learning the language. The use of jargon can make new interests or hobbies seem unapproachable and confusing and can turn off many would be enthusiasts. I do my best to write my tutorials and projects using the simplest terms possible but as I move into more complex topics and projects the use of this jargon will become unavoidable. It is for this reason that I’ve added the first two pages to the basics area of this page. These are Electronics Definitions and Synthesis Definitions. Over time I will be adding definitions for all of the special terms I use for electronic components, measurements, synthesizer modules, and anything else that someone new to electronics DIY may not be familiar with.
