Analog Synths Explained
First half is good, second is pointless...
If you know completely nothing about synths, then few first parts will tell you about main synths' components, like oscilator, lfo, filters. And that's short but for newbie should be good and enough for the beginning. But last to parts are completely without sense in my opinion. Guy is making different sound types but he tells nearly nothing about it, so you'll not be able to copy this sounds on your synth. He's turning knobs, saying few words and that's it. Everyone knows that you can make bass or lead synth sound on a monophonic synthesizer. He could show the process more precisely. But the last part is simply waste of time - what's the point in showing that you can add a delay in ableton to a mono synth sound? Yeah, you can also eq, compress, add a reverb, delay, pitch shifter, and use thousands of plugins to make it sound different and everyone knows it. But there's no point in showing this in a tutorial about analog synth explained, since watching this kind of tutorial you'd like to learn how to achieve this type, complex sound without using plugins in DAW or external gear ????
