When you first get into sound synthesis, it may seem like people are speaking an alien language. To help translate, I created this easy-to-understand course that demonstrates the fundamental concepts. It is designed for the beginner that is just getting into synthesis in general, and modular synthesis in particular. If you're a newbie, this is the course to watch first. 10 movies, 30 minutes, FREE
New to modular synthesis? This “Level 1” course starts with the origins of electronic music. It will teach you the fundamentals of modular synthesis, as well as how to choose a format and initial collection of modules. After that, I demonstrate step by step the most common approaches to modular synthesis. 38 movies (nearly 4 hours) plus a breakdown of a live modular performance, $62 USD.
Starting out with a semi-modular synth as an easy first step into modulars? This course focuses on the popular Mother-32, including playing with its synthesis engine, programming its sequencer, using its patchbay, and adding external modules to expand its capabilities. 18 movies, ~2 hours, $32 USD.
More comfortable using a computer than hardware? After showing you how to install and use this popular emulation of the classic Moog modular synthesizer, I start with the fundamentals of synthesis that apply to both hardware and software. I then demonstrate musically useful applications for each module in this Modular-V. 31 movies, over 3 hours, $42 USD.
Have a starter system, and wondering what modules you should buy next? Are you tired wasting time and money on the wrong modules? This “Level 2” course demonstrates what each type of module will add to your sonic toolkit, including deep dives into specific modules. It is available in three different "Tiers" that normally range in price from free for the Tier 1 "taster" course to $92 USD for Tier 2 and $172 USD for Tier 3, each with a different number of modules explored.
