Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent introduction to Synclavier! In just a couple hours, I had learned the basics of Synclavier programming. The pace of the course was excellent, as was the screen zooming to show what was going on. I wish somebody would do a Fairlight V using simuilar instruction techniques.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Synthclavier demystified! This systematic course gives you access to the power of this incredible instrument. The first half explains every part of the engine step by step (easy to follow), the second demonstrates the sound design-process with the synth. After watching these videos the functionality of Arturia's software emulation seems to be much clearer. Highly recommended if you want to use this synth beyond preset-switching!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Thed Straight Skinny on the Arturia Synclavier V This is an excellent overview of the Synclavier V! All aspects of the operation of this software synth are well-covered with a clear emphasis on an end-user viewpoint, BOTH for players that simply want to know how to get the Arturia presets up and running AND for sound designers that want to be able to create their own library of instrument presets/'fully tweak' existing presets/create new presets by copying and pasting existing presets and 'pieces' of them. This is a POWERFUL synth, and this video series puts the viewer in full touch with that power. Well done, concise and efficient. Doesn't go too deep into the 'math' behind most of it, which can be a bit much for most folks sometimes, and you can dig that out of the manuals if you really want to.
