Kadenze Sound Synthesis Using Reaktor Session 2 TUTORiAL
This course provides an introductory overview of audio synthesis and visual programming using Native Instruments' Reaktor Software. Students will receive an in-depth look into various audio synthesis methods, including: additive, subtractive, sampling, wavetable, physical modeling, and granular synthesis, as well as the various types of modulation synthesis. Students will also learn about the history of the synthesizer and electronic music, and will take a look at many of the current sound design trends in electronic music.

Additional topics include:

• Sound + waveform characteristics (Timbre)
• Modulation/filters/envelopes
• Analog + digital signals
• Signal flow
• DAWs/sequencing
• Sound design
• Audio effects
• Production techniques
• Audio warping/FFT

Sonic Academy presents How To Use FL Studio’s Harmor with the Jedi Master that is SeamlessR. Taking us through it’s massively powerful additive synth engine, SeamlessR gives us an overview of what addititve synthesis is, how it differs from Subtractive and how it can be applied to create some truly stunning results.

We dive deep into the Oscillators, Filters and Phaser modules, and get to grips with the very powerful multipoint envelope editor, which can be applied to over 40 parameters in two independent parts. We cover some usual synth topics like audio resynthesis, image synthesis, blur, pluck, unison, detune and prism - making this a truly unique synth with a truly unique sound delivered in the truly unique SeamlessR style

This course provides hands-on experience in producing, mixing, and sound design with a digital audio workstation. Students will learn the fundamentals (physics) of sound and digital audio, proper gain staging, where and how distortion enters recordings and mixes, how to set levels and panning, effective sub group mixing, and an introduction to signal processing such as equalization, compression, delay, and reverb. In addition to core audio and mixing concepts, students will learn various production techniques, such as sequencing, arranging, automation, using virtual instruments (e.g. synths, samplers, and drum machine plugins), working with MIDI, plugin formats such as VST/Audio-Units, and mapping digital USB controllers for the studio and live performance.

The material covered in this course will range from the foundations of producing music and sound design, to more advanced topics such as Ableton "racks" (Audio Effect Racks, MIDI Effect Racks, Instrument Racks, and Drum Racks), multi-band effects processing, advanced modulation, warping, time-stretching, and mangling audio, as well as taking advantage of Live's audio analysis tools for extracting grooves, melody, harmony, and drums from recorded sound.

In this tutorial course, Echo Sound Works walks you through the complex but rewarding world of all things additive synthesis. Additive Synthesis is one of the three main forms of synthesis. It’s actually the oldest form of sound synthesis. It’s methods and techniques predate subtractive and FM synthesis.

Featuring more than 60 minutes of intensive video tuition, this course is broken up into 5 parts and covers everything from the theory behind Additive Synthesis to how to make sounds using harmonics and partials.

By the end of the 5 videos, you will be familiar with the concepts of Additive Synthesis and be comfortable using multiple software synthesizers that are either Additive in nature or have Additive engines.

...::: Professional Skills At Your Fingertips – Learn Craft Your Signature Sound :::...

...::: The Theory of Additive Synthesis :::...

PART 1 – INTRODUCTION - This video covers the scope of the course.

PART 2 – WHAT IS ADDITIVE SYNTHESIS - This section covers the basics of Additive Synthesis covering ideas like fundamental frequencies, harmonics, overtones, partials etc.

PART 3 – ADDITIVE SYNTHESIZERS - This video discusses and looks at some of the most popular Additive Synths on the market. If you don’t own an Additive Synth or want to know about the other options out there, this is a great video.

...::: Additive Synthesis in Practice :::...

PART 4 – HARMONICS - In this section, get a unique view on how to use harmonics and partials to sculpt sounds in an Additive engine.

PART 5 – MAKING SOUNDS - To finish up the course, we look at some generic tips and tricks that will allow you to make better sounds in any Additive synthesizer.

...::: Learn to Create Not Just Imitate :::...
As the name suggests, Additive synthesis involves adding together multiple basic waveforms to create more complex ones. Some of the most powerful VSTs including U-he Zebra, Logic Pro-X Alchemy, and a whole slew of NI Reaktor ensembles feature additive synthesis as part of their M.O.

In skilled hands, Additive Synthesis provides an amazing level of control and flexibility and can be used to create unique and unusual sounds. Difficult to master, it’s worth getting your head around if you want to design sounds that are truly original.
