Syntorial- Learn Synthesis, The Easy Way

Syntorial- Learn Synthesis, The Easy Way   Syntorial is a highly interactive program that helps you understand how synthesizer programming works. Syntorial directs their attention towards the effect of controls on sound, rather than the science of how the sound is altered, which really allows you to dive into sound synthesis. The program itself sort of works out like an interactive YouTube video. What’s great about Syntorial is how user friendly the program is once you learn how to navigate through it. The program has video explanations of the lesson that is split with an interactive section for application. You are given two patches; the hidden and user patches, which you alternate between, attempting to replicate the given sound under the hidden patch.   The videos, unlike YouTube, are very well paced and well articulated. I found the ability to pause and shift to the interactive section allows for quick learning …

You’ll notice that when you start playing around with Melodics, you’re really just playing around. It’s designed to be fun. You start with practicing kicks, then move on to snares. You combine the two. Throw in high hats and all of the sudden, before you are even done with the first level you are playing a somewhat challenging beat. The cool …
