Getting Started with Synthesizers | GPLL276


This workshop will get you started in the world of synthesizers. A short introduction to the basics of sound will be followed by a look at how the components of a synthesizer work together to make sound synthesis possible.


No music theory or knowledge is required. Feel free to prepare questions and sounds you would like to synthesize.


Learning Objectives

There will be the opportunity to try a selection of different synthesizers including the Technology Sandbox’s Korg Minilogues. During this hands-on portion of the workshop, you will have an opportunity to create and shape your own sounds!
