*** The first app in this series of 6 apps is now free. Please enjoy ***
Lone Tree Music in collaboration with Macdonald Software presents "Synth Basics 1" an app that is aimed at all of those who are interested in learning the basics behind how a synthesiser works.
Specifically focusing upon Thor Polysonic Synthesiser which is included in Propellerheads Reason 4 & 5. However even if you use a different music program, the lessons here are aimed to be useful to all that have an interest in learning how a synthesizer works.
If you have ever wondered how to roll your own sounds to create patches or make your own Refills using synthesizers this tutorial could be just your ticket for sound design heaven.
Aiming to “keep things simple” the tutorial firmly gets to grips with the important underlying functions and uses of the various modules that make up a synth.
Bottom line we want you to finish this tutorial feeling that you have a firm understanding of how to build electronic sound from the ground up.
This is a first in a series of music production tutorials by LTM. We shall soon be launching a follow up tutorial that will continue from where the first leaves off. Building upon the initial lessons to help complete the picture of how a synthesizer functions.
In our first tutorial we shall be covering the basis of sound generation, the oscillator, within a synthesizer. The types of sound it makes and the functions that are available with it. We shall also discover how the sound flows through the various synthesizer modules
