Please be aware that the REAL foundations of electronic music - by the giants such as Stockhausen, Ligeti, Xenakis, Carlos, Schrader and [many many] more, which morphed from musique concrete to simple oscillators and tape recorders with razor blades has very little to do with what todays kidz think electronic music is: EDM, disco, and rap with Autotune. So be aware of this huge divide as you peruse the genre.

ALSO, there is a huge divide between the hardware junkies - those with new (or vintage) Moogs and ARPs and Oberheims and Buchlas and such - where every waveform really IS synthesized from scratch - to the new wave of full software "finished" implementation, the Logic Pro and ProTools and DAW crowd, where everything is in software.
