Chapter 7: Effects
Remember the good old days when synths had wooden sides and a knob for each function and feature? Well if you don't, Scottie Dugan is going to reveal the magic and mystery of these wonderful machines, teaching you the basics of analog synthesis from the ground up, using both classic and modern analog synthesizers. (Moog Modular clone, Roland Juno 60 & Arturia MINI Brute) Shown in HD video, you'll learn everything you need to get going with that old synth in your closet, or apply the info to any virtual synth in your DAW.
Scottie starts with an introduction covering what you'll learn in the series and then jumps right in to Oscillators and Waveforms and what they do. Next, Control Voltage is revealed and you'll see how this pre-MIDI technology is used and get creative tips on using it with today's synths. Filters are next, and Scottie shows you all about these powerful sonic sculptors.
Envelopes and LFOs are then explained in detail as well as how they're used to creatively control other parts of the synth. Scottie now takes what you've learnt and shows you how to design sounds from scratch with your analog synth. Watch as Scottie makes screaming leads, fat basses, powerful stabs, sub-drops, pads, percussive sounds and more!
If you have an old or new analog synth or a virtual analog synth in your DAW, you need to know the important basics before you can program your own sounds or edit existing ones. Let Scottie show you what you need to work that magic analog synth and have a whole new sonic world revealed... Watch "Analog Synths Explained" today.

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 ????

Doesn't Waste Your Time
This training is straight to the point and is great for beginners and musicians who want to understand analog synths without getting into the deep waters. It's also good for anyone using analog modeling synths to understand the fundamentals of subtractive synthesis

This was a great introduction for me understanding the various parts of an analogue synth in quite a short time. In the end when creating the individual sounds, it was a little bit too fast but I really liked the very beginning and the basics.

Scottie explains the rather difficult subject of analog synths in a manner anyone can understand. And with different analog synths. I'm sure I can use what he explained on my Virtual Analog VSTi's as well as the basic theory is still the same. I also can't wait to test all of this on my new Deepmind synth :) I would recommend this to anyone that wants to get deeper knowledge of how the different parts of an analog synth work.

Quality explaninations that feed my creativity
I love the way he moved form Moog modular to Roland Juno and Aturia Mini Brute - while making all the relevant connections between - Oscillator, Filter, ADSR & LFO. Knows his stuff - relevant, well delivered and his passion comes through

Very clear, very well organized.
This course takes you through analog synths, explaining how they work and how to program them. The author uses a couple of different synths to show how the principles apply the same way across different models. On completion of the curse, you will know your way around your analog synths. My interest stems from acquiring several of the Roland Boutique series. I wanted to be able to fully use these pieces, and this course is the perfect introduction.

The bees Knees
I was really grateful to find this offer, the videos are informative and, like you say, the knowledge easily translate to plugins, emulators and virtual instruments just as well as it does for the actual analog instruments. Even though my own synths aren't even featured in the series I got a massive amount of stuff from the videos.

A Great Help
I learnt enough from this series to feel confident in creating my own sounds and not relying on presets. Explanations were clear and examples even clearer. I'm enjoying my journey into synth paradise so much more.

great material covered
Good way to learn all the complexities of synth. I enjoyed seeing the patch bay as that helped clarify what was happening in the synth.
