Intro to Synthesizers & Electronic Sound Making
They’re back! Richard Nicol and Michael Johnsen of Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers will offer a no-nonsense, beginner-friendly introduction to the principles and tools of electronic music, especially the analog synthesizer.
The world of electronic instruments can seem confusing, but they all share the same basic ingredients. Using an intuitive analog synthesizer, we’ll make sense of the building blocks that make electronic music sing: oscillators, filters, envelope generators and modulators. Then we’ll turn the knobs and switches over to you to explore the limitless palette of sonic species.
