Software used in Moog or DSI synths?

Im curious about what goes into the software end of things inside modern analog synthesizers. Does anyone have any resources for things like this? Where does one start when building when building a a patch memory and things like that...

I doubt there is a standard for this. So different manufacturers likely handle it in different ways.
The smaller/DIY companies are great to learn from though, like Mutable Instruments, who's synths are open source. So all the info you could want about how they work is there for anyone that is interested to see (of course you learn plenty building the things too). And the developer/creator/brainiac is arguably a lot more approachable than most too.

Good advice here, the DIY community has some outstanding resources.

There's no real standard way of doing it. It depends on the hardware and the processor you're using.

Take it one step at a time. Maybe start with a MIDI controller (since in the end that's what you're doing to the synth side) then branch out from there. If you already know how to design a voltage controlled analog synth, then it would be a small jump from the MIDI controller to controlling the CVs. The hard part will be learning the embedded architecture and code techniques.
