  • What is Generate? 7:40

    What is Generate?

    Learn about the underlying architecture and structure of Generate, and see how the main areas of the interface are laid out.

  • Patching Modulation 4:02

    Patching Modulation

    Explore the modular style patching and see how routings between modulation outputs and sound generating parameters are connected, adjusted, bypassed, and removed.

  • The Chaotic Generator 8:59

    The Chaotic Generator

    Hear how the various chaotic generator controls interact with each other, and explore the various generator types and their different characteristics.

  • The Wavefolder 6:30

    The Wavefolder

    Explore the rich harmonics that are added to the signal using the three wavefolder types. The Drive signal boosts the input into the folds, and the symmetry and shape values control the movement of the harmonics.

  • Low Pass Gate 5:24

    Low Pass Gate

    See how these controls morph between a VCA style low pass gate and a resonant low pass filter; and hear how the ADSR amp envelope controls effect the level of notes over time.

  • Global Voice Controls 6:48

    Global Voice Controls

    Discover how the Global voice parameters are used for performance based control and modulation.

  • Examining Envelopes 6:05

    Examining Envelopes

    Hear how the three different envelope outputs relate to the four stages in the Generate envelopes.

  • Using the LFOs 8:30

    Using the LFOs

    See how rhythmic modulation of the sound generating parameters is generated via these low frequency repeating cyclical patterns.

  • Sample & Hold 5:39

    Sample & Hold

    Hear how this module provides a source of randomness, noise, and glitching to the modulation section.

  • Step Sequencer 5:56

    Step Sequencer

    The SEQ module provides an 8-step step sequencer allowing you to sequence any of the Modulation Destinations. Hear the various playback directions and output controls in action.

  • Effects Overview 3:00

    Effects Overview

    See how the simple yet intuitive effects round out the palette of sound shaping parameters within Generate.

  • Drums Sound Design 5:24

    Drums Sound Design

    Follow along as kick, snare, and hi hat type sounds are created with Generate from scratch.

  • Synth Bass Sound Design 3:26

    Synth Bass Sound Design

    Watch as a synth bass sound, built from initialized settings, is deconstructed.

  • Keys Sound Design 4:13

    Keys Sound Design

    Learn how to make a smooth keyboard sound, built up from scratch, and see how an LFO, sample & hold, and delay are used to add motion to the timbre of the sound.

  • Rhythmic Pad Sound Design 3:39

    Rhythmic Pad Sound Design

    The step sequencer and sample & hold modulation outputs are put to work creating a pad sound with rhythmic motion; built on the Turbine chaos generator with oscillator sync.

  • Lead Sound Design 3:29

    Lead Sound Design

    In this final video, a lead sound with real-time mod wheel control is set up, and a short solo is recorded.

Product Overview


Eli Krantzberg presents in-depth Generate video tutorials! Learn all about the exciting new polysynth from Eventide and Newfangled Audio, which combines several revolutionary chaotic oscillators. See how to create complex pads, warm moving keys, jittery sequenced basses, out-of-control leads, and mind-bending textures. These videos are designed for new Generate users.

Eli welcomes you and jumps right in, showing you the underlying architecture and structure of Generate, as well as how the main areas of the interface are laid out. Then you'll explore the modular style patching and see how routings between modulation outputs and sound generating parameters are connected, adjusted, bypassed, and removed.

Next, discover how the various chaotic generator controls interact with each other, the various generator types and their different characteristics, including how rich harmonics are added to the signal using the three wavefolder types. Throughout the rest of the Generate video tutorials you'll learn how to utilize Generate's low pass gate, global voice controls, envelopes, LFOs, sample & hold feature, step sequencer, effects and much more.

Making your Generate journey complete, Eli gives you 5 dedicated sound design video tutorials that show you how to make amazing drums, synth bass, keys, pads and lead sounds all from scratch using Generate.

To see what these detailed Generate tutorials show you, and how they'll get you up and running fast with Generate and craft sounds from scratch, see the individual Generate video tutorial descriptions on this page.
