Where to learn the basics

I'm fascinated by the world of synthesizers, especially the one concerning Eurorack and Modular Synths. But before I can even approach this rather complex topic, I would like to have some advice on where to learn the theory that underlies the world of synthesizers. Do you have any sources, both literary and online, to recommend? (not so much a guide to Eurorack and Modular Synths, as to something that allows me to address those topics later).

Eurorack is not a very cheap hobby so maybe it's a good step to download the free vcv rack and start to practice with it before spending a lot of money?
In the meantime you can find out what kind of modules you need to start with.
Omri Cohen has done a lot of clips for starting with vcv rack;

Here some links for articles about synthesis;

the best way to get to understand synthesis is buying some cheap semi-modular hardware. a Microbrute, Neutron or whatnot. that's what it took for me before I even began to understand what was really going on and possible inside Ableton.
