    Introduction

    Let’s start off with an overview. We’ll take a look at the three panels, their main sections and the universal controls. Then we will wrap up the video going over some general workflow.

  • image description 10:41

    Oscillator Basics

    In the first oscillator video we’ll go over the five main sections. Then take a look at the oscillator’s basic parameters and Pitch Control.

  • image description 12:18

    Phase Modulation

    Now on to the juicy stuff. Now let’s go over the basics of Phase Modulation. For this application we could also call it FM or Frequency Modulation. We’ll apply those ideas to Bazille’s interface.

  • image description 8:40

    Phase Distortion

    Going even deeper, we are able to create even more complex wave forms with this type of synthesis. We’ll go over the simple interface and why it’s so powerful.

  • image description 7:46

    Fractal Resonance

    Here we have another really interesting way to manipulate wave forms. Again, a really simple interface that can be a very powerful sound design tool.

  • image description 16:15

    LFOs

    If you are familiar with Subtractive Synthesis you’ll feel right at home. But don’t think Bazille’s LFOs are simple because they are extremely flexible and powerful. We’ll go over all their parameters.

  • image description 12:18

    Filters

    There are four Filters available to us and the come with an enormous amount of options. Let’s take a look at what they’re all about.

  • image description 14:38

    Envelopes & Outputs

    Two staples in any type of synthesizer, there are more than just an ADSR and the routing options are almost endless. Really cool stuff here.

  • image description 7:39

    Processors

    Next let’s take a look at how Bazille incorporates some of the classic Modular signal processors.

  • image description 4:41

    MIDI & More

    Along with the Modulation options the MIDI and More Panel gives us the flexibility a Modular Synth can offer. We have both MIDI and Internal Control sources which can be patched to practically anything.

  • image description 9:17

    Multiplex

    This little Multiples is usually so simple it needs no explanation, right? one signal goes in and it’s split, or lot’s of signals go in and they are combined with a single output. Nope, not this guy. Let’s take a look at how this Multiples module does way more than just a simple split or mix.

  • image description 19:29

    Modulation Sequencer

    What Modular System would be complete without some kind of step sequencer. Well, I say non. Bazille doesn’t disappoint. This video will be dedicated to the Mod Sequencer. We can control practically every parameter including Pitch.

  • image description 16:40

    Voice Control

    Next, let’s move to the Tweaks and FX panel. We will start off with the utility parameters that come with every synth. Then go over a few unique options.

  • image description 5:20

    Mapping Generators

    When you thought it couldn’t get any more customizable... it’s about to. The Oscillators aren’t giving you a complex enough wave form? Then draw in your own. The LFOs or Envelope Generators aren’t doing exactly what you want, then manually create your own.

  • image description 3:58

    Additional Parameters & Ramp

    Are four simple ADSR Envelope Generators and two filters enough? Nope. We have additional parameters for both and two Ramp Generators.

  • image description 8:26

    Distortion

    Now onto the toys. In this video let’s take a look at the many different ways we can color and add harmonics.

  • image description 5:53

    Delay

    We’ll go over the classic delay parameters as well as some not to classic ones.

  • image description 2:46

    Phaser

    Scottie explores the phaser and all its parameters.

  • image description 4:33

    Spring Reverb

    Scottie digs into the spring reverb and explains all its features and functions.

  • image description 5:32

    Patch Browser

    The next panel is all about presets. It’s a very nice layout and very simple to use. This video will show you everything you need to know about saving, recalling and organizing your sounds.

  • image description 6:13

    Performance

    Let’s go one step further. We will go over performing with Bazille. Specifically, using a MIDI controller to move parameters and MIDI Program Change messages to recall Patches while performing.

  • image description 7:14

    Kick & Bass

    In the final few videos let’s reverse engineer a few pre made patches. In this video we will take a look at a drum and bass patch. Pitch modulation is key whenever creating synth Kick or Tom sounds.

  • image description 7:58

    Melody & Chord

    Next let’s learn how modulation can create complexity both in the waveform and pitch. Movement is always key when creating big sounding synth patches.

  • image description 7:04

    SFX

    Finally space sounds. If you own a modular system, analog or plugin, at some point you will be making laser sounds. Here’s one I really like.

Simply The Best tutorial on Bazille, end of story!

An excellent tutorial. Scottie obviously really understands this synth and he has that rare talent of being equally competant in sharing his wealth of knowledge. I can highly recommend this tutorial to anyone looking to get to grips with this potent synth.

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.
