Since all synths use the same basic parameters, it makes sense to learn how to use them.
This series of six hands-on Session Lessons™ teaches you how to create your own sounds from scratch, so you can make music that people will recognize -- instead of sounding like everybody else.
In The Essential Basics of Sound Design you'll learn subtractive synthesis in-depth with Ableton's Operator synth while we make leads, pads, risers, chords, sub-bass and wubs.
Listen to a few of the sounds we make in this course.
Nobody wants to sound like a copycat producer who just slapped a bunch of presets together from the latest sample pack.
Nobody wants to use the stock presets and sound completely boring, either.
And nobody wants to spend nine million years getting lost trying to edit sounds!
Would you like to be able to catch the sounds you hear in your imagination, instead of constantly wasting money on commercial sample packs?
