It’s always a good idea to take a break from the more advanced tutorials we normally offer to make sure that the fundamentals have been covered. Our communities are constantly growing, and every day we see both experienced and unexperienced users join our ranks. This video tutorial on Absynth fundamentals is a nice overview of the synth itself, the many features that set it apart from the competition and sound synthesis in general. Nick does a good job of walking through various patches, explaining the browsing system, breaking down the different windows that make up Absynth and even explains how an oscillator works. So when I say fundamental, I truly mean it!
One of the best things you can ever do for yourself and your music (or sound design skills, productions skills, etc) is to gain a deep understanding of the mechanics and theories that make sound synthesis work. This lesson in Absynth fundamentals touches on topics ranging from pitch and frequencies to waveforms and how Absynth allows you to design your very own custom waves. This is one of the most advanced synthesizers currently available and offers most of the various forms and types of sound synthesis we currently know about. It also offers many more features not covered in this video, as it would probably take hours just to touch on each and every one of them. So if you are new to Absynth and want to know where to turn next, simply type in the name of a feature (Envelopes, LFO, Filters, Effects, Recorder, etc) into our search bar here on the site and away you go!
As always, if you have a question, suggestion, sounds to share or even a tutorial of your own we would love to hear from you. You can either shoot us a message here on the website, through our Facebook Page or you can join the ongoing conversations in our new synth tutorial forums! We hope you have enjoyed this look at some of the key Absynth fundamentals to help get you started.
