Introduction to Analogue Style Synthesis

We will dive into the basic principles of subtractive synthesis commonly found on vintage synthesizers (Oscillators, Filters, Amplifiers, Envelopes, LFOs etc) then apply these concepts to modern hybrid synths such as Omnisphere, Massive, and virtual recreations of some classics. We will learn how to build patches from scratch and establish the bass concepts required to tweak and program most contemporary synthesizers.
