We’ve released an update to Learning Synths, a free interactive website that helps you learn the fundamentals of synthesis. You can now add more character to your creations, make recordings, and continue shaping your sounds in Live.
First introduced in 2019 following the positive response to Learning Music, the step-by-step lessons cover the main components of synthesizers, like oscillators, filters, envelopes, and LFOs – all powered by a great-sounding two-oscillator monosynth.
Export – turns your creation into a Max for Live synth contained in a Live Set*
Record – capture up to 60 seconds of audio, so you can record the output of the synth as you manipulate its sound
A configurable XY pad in the Playground – quickly experiment with new sound combinations
“Open in Playground” buttons – edit the sounds on lesson pages in more depth in the Playground, and then explore them further in Live
Dark mode support – switches on and off based on your system preferences
Turkish, Finnish and Portuguese language support
*Minimum requirements: Live 11 Lite (also works with Live 9.7-10 Suite)
