Thomas Cochran presents an in-depth look at Propellerhead’s Grain virtual granular synth. Learn all of its features and functions as well as interesting sound design techniques allowing you to fully command this powerful synth.

Thomas starts off by welcoming you and then briefly outlines the interface of the Grain synthesizer, as well as provides a brief explanation of granular synthesis and how it processes audio sample material.

Thomas then proceeds to go through every section of Grain in full detail, including the Audio Sampler & Motion Modes, the Granular Oscillator, Pitch Controls and Sub Oscillator, Audio Routing, Filters, Amp Envelopes and Modulation, LFOs, Audio FX and much, much more.

Magnificent!!

This video not only does a great job explaining Reason's new synth, Grain - it really is well done - it also provided a simple but meaningful explanation of how general synthesis works. Unlike a lot of videos on synths, this one takes the time to let you hear how every little tweak changes to sound. That was immensely helpful. I would have learned synthesis a long time ago if all those other videos had been as good as this one.

Thomas Cochran electronic musician and multi instrumentalist from Austin Texas, who now lives in Los Angeles. He focuses on creating electronic music that features both ambient and classical influences.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing music at a young age, starting with classical guitar. This started my love for music and eventually expanded into learning other instruments as well. To date, I have had over ten years of classical experience and training as well as additional instrumental experience.

2. What training have you had?

I grew up studying classical guitar and composition and eventually started applying my classical knowledge to learning other instruments as well, ranging from violin, cello, keys, and drums.

3. When did you get intro recording?

I got into recording out of necessity when me and some friends started a band back in high school and couldn't afford studio time. Through this, I learned about music production and recording and haven't looked back since.

4. Why are you so good at training people?

I love learning about the technical aspects of music production, this helps me understand the how music production works under the hood. I have also worked for several years creating music production tutorials online.
