Looking to improve your skills with sound synthesis? How about more information on Ableton’s most misunderstood instrument? This tutorial series serves as both a missing manual for Ableton Analog plus a comprehensive introduction to the most important concepts in synthesis. By the end of the series, you’ll be using Analog with confidence and a wealth of inspiration.
Throughout this Ableton Live tutorial series, you’ll be given a detailed and logical explanation of the components of Analog. Next, you’ll see how some rather complex sounds are built using what you learned before. This is done in simple steps so that you can easily absorb the information.
In addition to the videos, you’ll be given access to ready-made instrument rack presets so you can try out the instruments even before building them along with the tutorials.
…I can actually use Analog now, the way it was meant to be used :)… I usually don’t leave comments on websites but after watching the third Analog video, i felt obligated to send you a thanks. – Omar Baha
A Small Portion of What is Covered:
- Thorough Coverage of Important Concepts such as Filters, Envelopes, LFOs, and More
- Pulse Wave Modulation
- Animating a Formant Filter to Simulate Human Speech
- Using the Noise Generator to Add Extra Texture to Your Sound
- Creative Macro Knob Mappings to Extend the Features of Analog
- Parallel and Series Filter Routings for Truly Huge Sounds
- Powerful LFO and Envelope Routing Possibilities, Including Commonly Overlooked Parameters
- Creating Dynamic Performance Options with Velocity Modulation
- Creating Animated Drums with Filtered and Enveloped White Noise Oscillators
These videos explain each decision in the sound design process rather than simply moving forward and assuming that you know exactly what’s going on. This is not a “paint by numbers” tutorial series but rather an attempt to empower you to do this stuff on your own. I invite you to join me for a few hours and learn the amazing sonic potential of Analog.
…Not only have you freed me from relying on the bundled presets of what was once the impenetrable analog instrument, you have also saved me the hundred or so Euros I was prepared to pay for a vsti with an interface that I could understand…Thank you.” – Emanuel
