analog synths is even better and reduces a lot of time wasted
on random playing with knobs (!) - Two sources I'd recommend
reading and learning several times :
- Howard Scarr's synth programming book. Its actually a
hands on manual targeted at Virus C series owners, but
all the theory is sound, and the descriptions of classic
synths are great. Most of it can be applied to other
bits of kit. Its a downloadable pdf from www.access-music.de
- Gordon Reids fantastic Synth Programming Secrets series
that's been running every month in Sound on Sound. It is
REALLY good and detailed, but not always that easy to
follow. All back articles older than 6 months are available
There have also been articles in Future Music and Computer
Music, but IMHO these have never been detailed or thorough
enough to be worth spending time with...
Hope that points you in a useful direction!
