Intro to Modular Synths
1 Session // 3 hours of hands on Instruction
Since the late 1990s, there has been a huge resurgence in the popularity of the analog synthesizer. Many current producers who have started out with virtual synthesis systems (such as MAX/MSP, Pd, Reaktor, or Massive) are turning to the original artifact to produce a more authentic and unique sound. Rarely will two people arrive at the exact same result. The basic point of modular synths is this: you decide everything.
In this course Matt Thibideau breaks down the ins and outs of how analog & digital synthesizers differ and how it's turned from a monolithic beast of a machine into a very portable and programmable instrument (eg mini moog). Here you'll learn about the function and application of various oscillators, filters, amplifiers, and envelope generators in a hands on class that encourages participation as developing your fundamental synthesis knowledge and skill set.
