This class systematically explores the history, concepts, tools and strategies of analog synthesis and sequencers. Students learn to effectively create sounds and program a variety of analog synthesizers, including physically modular systems and Virtual Analog versions, and synchronize them with DAWs. Students explore the art of synthesis through the hands-on study of signal flow, timbre, sound design, programming, and the musical functions of various types of sounds.
