LESSON 01 March 31, 2024 Overview of Sound Synthesis
Sound synthesis is the process of creating sound using electronic and digital means. It involves generating sound waves through oscillators, shaping these sounds with filters and amplifiers, and controlling them with modulators. This foundational technique is crucial in music production, sound design, and electronic music composition. In this kickoff lesson, we will take a bird’s eye view (and listen) to understand the vast scope of sound synthesis.
