Learning Modular Synthesis: Arturia Modular V – Introduction
Learning Modular Synthesis: Arturia Modular V – Introduction from Learning Modular on Vimeo.
"This is the course overview for 'Learning Modular Synthesis: Arturia Modular V' where I lay out the basic idea of the course, and what will be covered in what order.
One of the most exciting areas of music creation is modular synthesis, where you get to interconnect the fundamental building blocks of a synthesizer to create your own instrument. In this course, music industry veteran and synth designer Chris Meyer uses the Arturia Modular V software – a realistic emulation of the original Moog modular synths of the 1960s and 1970s – to teach you how to "patch" a modular synth to create your own sounds. Chris starts with the fundamentals of how harmonics and sound work, as well as how to connect the modules together. He then goes through the main modules individually, explaining the differences between oscillator waveshapes, filter types, and more, while demonstrating how to use them in a musical context. The third chapter teaches advanced techniques such as frequency and amplitude modulation, as well as using the effects and advanced filters in Arturia Modular V.
The course is available through LinkedIn Learning (http://bit.ly/lms_amv_lil) and Lynda.com (http://bit.ly/lms_amv). If you do not already have a subscription to one of these services, sign up for an account at http://lynda.com/trial/chrismeyer and sample this course and any of the others they offer, including well over 250 on audio and music (including my original Learning Modular Synthesis course for hardware modular systems: http://bit.ly/LearningModular).
