Waves debut virtual synth is a knockout! Mark Struthers digs deep into this sonic necessity, showing you all the nooks and crannies, making learning this synth elementary.

Mark starts with a detailed tutorial on setting up this powerhouse synth in both stand-alone mode and within a DAW. He then gets into the Oscillator and Voltage Controllers sections and explains how they're used for sound creation.

Next, Mark dives into the LFO and MOD Matrix sections, taking your sound creation further with these basic, but important sound sculpting features. The FX section is then explored, as well as the EQ section, which are both highly effective tools in your sonic toolbox.

The super cool Arpeggiator / Sequencer is then looked at in detail, showing you how to add movement to your patches. Mark then reveals useful Global Adjustments such as for locking in Elelment's Arpeggiator / Sequencer tempo with your DAW's tempo. Using Presets is then studied, as well as how to adapt presets into your own masterpiece.

Mark wraps up the series with tutorials on how to build a patch from scratch and how to use multiple instances of Element to build a track within your DAW. If WAVES Element is in your virtual synth arsenal, learn to lock and load it up today... Watch "WAVES Element Explained" now.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

Having a father with a recording studio and having played guitar since being a 14 year old kid, I quickly got into recording. But, the purchase of a Tascam 244 Portastudio was a breakthrough in realizing what I wanted to do.

2. What training have you had?

I taught myself to play guitar and keyboards and found it a remarkably calming and mathematical experience learning the rules of intervals within a scale and how they can take you to any chord.

3. When did you get into recording?

The purchase of the cassette based Tascam 244 lasted a fair few years until I moved up to a Roland VS880 which then linked in to building a purpose built commercial multimedia studio around 15 years ago mainly running Steinberg and Adobe software.

4. People you have worked with/for?

Thankfully, nobody famous enough to have an ego. Instead 100's of happy Joe Public clients.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

My degree is in English and Teaching and I was a grammar school teacher for over 10 years before changing direction and working solely from my studio. recording music and filming for clients.
