Learning Synths

An amazing interactive introduction to the wonderful world of synthesis.
The key to shaping your mix at a genetic level, rather than relying on effects to perform plastic surgery.

One you have competed this please reach out for a one on one follow up lesson, where I will dig further into the idiosyncrasies of how these concepts are implemented in various synths, and how these same concepts apply to almost all audio effects.

Learn about synthesizers via Ableton’s interactive website. Play with a synth in your browser and learn to use the various parts of a synth to make your own sounds.

Fil­ter Sci­ence with Cy­tomic’s An­drew Sim­per | Future Music

Next level filter knowledge.
"When the cutoff of a non-linear filter is swept, the resonance tends to latch onto each of the harmonics of the input as it passes nearby. It's like a frequency snapping mechanism, and this is the key to the cool growling sounds you get with non-linear filters."

What An­drew Sim­per doesn’t know about fil­ters isn’t worth know­ing. As the coding ex­pert be­hind Cy­tomic, he’s spent years analysing ana­logue cir­cuits and sys­tems with the aim to bring those non­lin­ear­i­ties to the dig­i­tal do­main. His lauded DSP fil­ter...

Ableton Rack Tip:

You know how annoying it is when you Map a parameter to a Macro and it jumps to zero, losing you current setting and potentially creating some awful noise?

Go to your Options.txt and put in:
-AutoAdjustMacroMappingRange

Now your current parameter value will be automatically set as the current value of the Macro, both saving and maintaining that value for your convenience.

Audio aliasing explained

See those unwanted frequencies? Now multiply them by every element in your mix that is undergoing a process which is adding harmonics that surpass the Nyquist. Now realize that the "expert" source you are going to for mixing advice never talked about any of this ;o)
