A look at Layers, routing and adding effects.
The basic Oscillator waveforms, sampled waveforms, and SFZ file are covered, as is how to use the Oscillators as modulators.
Additive, Vector and Wavetable Oscillators are discussed, as well as how to import your own sounds into SynthMaster.
A description of the filter modes, routing and types.
The arpeggiator modes and parameters are discussed, as is using the step velocity as a modulation source.
You can program monophonic and polyphonic patterns into sequencer mode, and use the drum mode to make drum grooves.
A description of each effect available.
ADSR, Multistage and 2D Envelopes.
How to us the Keyscaler and the basic, step, glide and dual LFO settings.
You can set up SynthMaster as a Vocoder and process the output through a reverb for rich Vocoder FX.
This is the overview page in SynthMaster for all your effects.
You can run external audio through SynthMaster and using its internal effects and filter to sculpt the sound.
KV331’s SynthMaster is one of the most comprehensive semi-modular software instruments out there, and Larry Holcombe delivers a video tutorial series that gets you one step closer to becoming a real synth master!
Larry begins with an introduction explaining all of the types of synthesis available, and what their differences are. He then shows you how you can take the included presets and modify them by assigning modulators and saving new presets. That leads into an exploration of the layers, routing, and architecture of SynthMaster.
Larry then dives into the oscillators, showing you around the different types, and how to use them and their modulators, as well importing your own sounds. Filter types and the different routing options available to you are then all explained and explored, expanding your sonic capabilities.
The classic arpeggiator modes and parameters are then revealed, and you’ll see how you can set up custom arpeggiator patterns, as well as apply step velocity as a modulation source for wild pulsing synth parts. You’ll then see how you can program monophonic and polyphonic patterns into sequencer mode, and how you can make banging drum grooves in Drum mode.
The powerful effects are then examined, as well as all the modulation sources, showing you how you use them to modulate the effects and synth parameters. You’ll even learn how to use SynthMaster as a vocoder, and set up effects busses and stack effects!
Finally, Larry explains how you can use SynthMaster as an audio effect, running external audio through it and using its internal effects and and filters to endlessly sculpt your sound.
