I'm after some easy, straight to the point programming tutorials, got any? I prefer turotials without too much explaining what this and that parameter actually does. But all tips are welcomed :)

You know, if you actually type in the words "how to program analog synthesizers" (assuming that's the type of synth you want programming info about) and do a Google search - you'd be surprised at what you'd find. Really - just try it. I did and found several pages that would suit your needs.

I totally agree - the synth secrets articles really will help.

Not so sure on Sos articles as a good place to start. I haven't read most, but I remember reading some of them and thinking they are a bunch of mathimatical explanations. Might have been the particular article, but they seemed a little more advanced on the topics.

Here's a good read on synthesis in general:

You want tutorials that don't explain anything? :? Why?

Because I think I'll understand more or less from hearing the results. Knowing the exact details of what's happening can be nice, but I really don't have the time at the moment. So straight to point tutorials are what I'm after.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far, btw! :)

Emu makes good manuals. The general programming section at the back of any of the sound module manuals from here should give you a good start.

Access music had a good programming manual at their site too. Specific examples are for the Virus, but the general principles apply to any synth.
