Meet the Synthesizer - Create Sizzling Hits in Minutes

  • Ages 13 - 17
  • Creative
    • Experience
  • Online

In this session, you will be introduced to the science of audio, making use of frequency spectrum analysis to understand what gives different sounds their unique texture. We then apply this to an online synthesizer that you can access within your browser, using it to learn the fundamental components of synthesizers, including oscillators, filters and envelopes.

Although we will be experimenting with these techniques using the online program, the same principles can be applied to all conventional synthesizers.

This session will be useful to those who are familiar with DAW software and want to begin creating their own sounds, but also for anyone with an interest in sound design and musical experimentation!

FireTech Experiences are a new series of short, high interest, fun and engaging tech demonstrations and talks. These are delivered in webinar style, using Zoom, with the main expert tutor showcasing a new interesting aspect of technology and learning. Apart from Zoom, no other downloads are required.
