MASSIVE X: Sound Design Vol 1
Excellent, lots of points that piqued my interest!
As someone who started in the 1980s with Juno and Yamaha hardware synths, despite having embraced software synthesisers I still have a natural tendency to limit my sound design to standard features as though still limited by the early hardware.
This course has led me through some parts of contemporary synthesisers that I wouldn't normally use, in fact, Massive-X is not one of my goto synths although it might well have become so.
Would love to see Thomas do a sound-design course purely on 'exotic' or 'unusual' patches which make full use of this kind of advanced capabilities in contemporary software synths.
There is a lot of stuff out there on various sites (and Groove3) on recreating 1980s vintage sounds, I know how to do that, my challenge is breaking out of that box!
