    Oscillators

    ext up we have the Oscillators. These are one of the main sources of sound. We will take a look and listen to the different waveforms, layer in Oscillator two and check out a few different modes.

    Wave Oscillator

    This is the second half of our sound source. We can use audio files as sound sources and even load our own. We can also choose between the very simple and pure wave forms we explored in the previous video or make our sound as complex as we can imagine.

    Filters

    Now onto sculpting our sound. The filter is the next stop after the Oscillators. We can employ the classic Subtractive Synthesis technique of removing information in many different shapes and flavors. Scottie also goes over the ADSR Envelope Generators for both the Amplitude and Filter. This allows us to modulate those parameters by using our keyboard.

    Modulation

    Now let’s look at different ways we can Modulate or change our sound. This time it’s relative to time or our DAW’s BPM. We will take a look at two LFOs and the Arpeggiator.

    Advanced Modulation

    Let’s take the Modulation idea one step further. This time with Parameter Morphing and Graphic Envelopes. Both of these techniques give us even more control over Modulating parameters.

    Putting it all Together

    In this video Scottie explores Layers. Everything we just went over can be multiplied by four. Let’s take a look at how to layer and zone our sound and also jump into Global setting for all layers.

Just always the best!

I have not watched a bad video on this site yet. I love the detail and the extrapolation of the technical to the musical. After teaching you how to do something they always tell how and where you might use it.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I grew up taking classical piano lessons, so music has always been a part of my life. It started out as a daily chore and eventually evolved into a passion. Now I am very lucky to call it my profession.

2. What training have you had?

After thirteen years of private piano lessons I decided to pursue a formal degree. Two years in and I realized it wasn't for me. From that point on a began teaching myself and taking various online courses that offered subjects that excited me. I've gotten to learn and sit under individuals who are way better than I am.

3. When did you get into recording?

Ableton Live and the ability to make music with a computer were the two biggest reasons I didn't continue pursue a formal degree. I was in a band, we cut a DIY "garage album" and that started the obsession. The once obscured world of synths, hardware and software was now overwhealming as I transitioned away from a piano only mindset.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I have the great privilege to be working with Ableton as one of their Ableton Certified Trainers. Being a part of that community has been really amazing and life changing. I have yet to work with anyone rich and famous... but I have a feeling one day some of these crazy talented people will be. I get to work with students and artists who are chasing their musical dreams. I like the purity and passion that comes with that.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Well, I've always been told that I'm a good teacher but I hated talking to people I didn't know. It took a while to get over those introvert tendencies and fear of public speaking and now I can't get enough. Watching a student get that lightbulb breakthrough or seeing an ignition of passion after the transfer of knowledge creates such a sense of fulfillment for me. I can't not teach.
