What you are going to learn

The essentials of Sound Design through synthesis.

This is a class designed for the average person who is ready to dive in to making music with synthesis! Whether you are a beginning musician, an active musician, or an aspiring musician - this class is perfect for you! 

In Sound Design Fundamentals: Sampling, we will examine the essentials of Sound Design using Ableton Live and Propellerheads' Reason software and focusing on principals of Sampling. We will explore three fundamental topics:

• Using synthesis for generating sounds.

• Using synthesis to generate new sounds through manipulation and synthesis

• Using synthesis to control drum sounds and sequence dynamic drum patterns.

Course reviews

This course was very easy to understand and I was confused about the different controls synthesizers have. This helped me understand how they work. Looking forward to the new class which is even more in-depth of synthesis.
