Description

This course is targeted at beginners and intermediate level students.

It covers the fundamentals of audio synthesis.


The software being used is Ableton Live Suite’s Analog and Operator Synthesizers, but the underlying concepts are transferable to the majority of other software and hardware synthesizers on the market.


The course is structured progressively, covering all the building blocks and different methods of synthesis commonly used.


Throughout the course there are animations demonstrating the concepts visually, so you can see as well hear the sound.


There are also example patches available to download that cover common types of sounds such as basses, leads and pads.


This course is designed to be an in depth, comprehensive look at synthesis and on completion you will have all the basic knowledge required to kick-start your own sound design journey.
