Description

All synths use the same essential modules as the basis for sound creation: LFOs, Oscillators, Filters and Envelopoes. All use the same or very similar signal paths and all can recreate similar tones using the same basic techniques.
Once you know what to look for and what they do you can pick up pretty much any synth and start programming like a pro. I’ve been programming them for a couple of decades, and can pick up anything and start programming from scratch
..And the big secret is… its not actually very complicated at all!!
You’ll be able to figure out how tones are made, adapt presets to fit your productions or even program the sound you’ve got in your head.
In this course I walk through how to create some basic basses, pads, poly sounds, organs etc and show how to use oscillator sync, FM and Ring Mod, plus we delve into some more complex modulation concepts. We do this using the TAL Noi3SeM4ker free software which. -like all synths has all the same essentials.
Every synth has its own idiosyncrasies and special features, even the Noi3eM4ker has its unique complex modulator. So to hammer the point home I take a look at recreating some of the tones we’ve made on some of the kit in the studio:
· Sequential Pro-One
· Korg Odyssey
· MS20
· Moog Grandmother
· Sequential OB6
· Kawai 100F
· Sequential Prophet 6

If you follow the tutorials, stopping the video to make the tweaks yourself, you’ll soon start to predict what the changes will do to the tone.  By the end of the course you will be able to make a good guess at how most sounds you hear are produced, and definitely be able to open your editor and understand what happening, the signal flow and how to change the sound to fit your mix better.

You’ll probably even second guess my next move.. and have ideas of your own to try.  Some of these may make the basis of your own style and sound.

Most of all the course is designed to help you to get the most from your synths and get more enjoyment from your kit.. Spend less time trawling through preset banks and more time making music.

✓ Learn the basis of sound design through understanding all the major sound creation modules found on any synth
✓ Understand how sounds are modulated and how to develop a sound within a track creating more dramatic and musical compositions
✓ Get the most from your synths, hardware or software, virtual analog or vintage they all use the same basic building blocks.
✓ From basics to complex ideas the more you know the more you’ll get from your kit and the more fun and engaging it becomes

Musician, Producer, Youtuber, TV Presenter at Clubbing TV,
Writing, recording, producing and remixing electronic music for a couple of decades means I’ve picked up a few trips here and there, especially when it comes to synths, sounds and tweaking stuff to fit in a mix.
Over the past couple of years I’ve been creating demos, tutorials, walkthrough and reviews of synths, drum machine and software on my YouTube channel and for my ‘From the Studio’ show on Clubbing TV.
I’m known for deep dive explanations and comparisons, and for every synth I review I program all the sounds for my demo tracks  – demoing how the synth can sound when actually in use – as opposed to using presets designed to show the synths functions – that often are just that – demo sounds but nothing you’d use in a track.
Here I’m diving deeper into various aspects of synthesis in easy to follow tutorials so you can really understand how to get the most from your hardware, software, analog, digital or hybrid synths.
