Day 137: Synthesiser Bootcamp.

Subtractive synthesis is a fairly complex subject, yet one that is important to master if you really want to rule at producing.

You could just sit there for hours with you synth twiddling all the knobs, seeing what sounds cool, or you could actually learn what they all do, and then be the master of your music. It's a no brainer really.

What is 'a 'brainer' though is actually learning it, no matter how I approach it, it all makes sense for about 5 seconds, then I've forgotten which thing effects the other all over again.

Below is a fairly no frills, yet informative introduction to Modulation, which is 'affecting sound over time' more or less. But as always with subtractive synthesis... also not that at all. Yeah exactly.

Worth a look though:
