52 Reason / Record Tips - Week 46: Subtractor LFOs and Mods

posted 2011-02-02 at 22:06

After watching the first two Synth School videos you've probably realized that the entirety of synthesizer sound design is simply about taking a basic sound wave and reshaping it with basic tools like filters, amp envelopes, phase, other oscillators mixed in, etc.  This week we'll look at the final piece of the Subtractor puzzle:  LFOs and Performance Modifiers.  When you're done this video you will have everything you need to start creating some seriously unique Subtractor patches.  More importantly, you'll be ready to tackle the more complicated Malstrom Graintable synthesizer.

Next week I think you'll be surprised with how much you already know about it having built a strong foundation in a fundamental synth like Subtractor.

You forgot to explain the screws! :)

(Hint for those who don't know: Try to pull off the screws of subtractor at left and right side)
