Skill Level Beginner
- [Presenter] Songwriting, recording, and mixing get a lot of attention. But one essential area of music production that's often overlooked is sound synthesis. Getting familiarity and confidence with synthesis will allow you to edit and build your own sounds, instead of having to rely on presets. In this course, I'm going to take you through the software synth, Serum, and help you to understand and use wavetable synthesis. We'll discuss how to humanize and shape sound using envelopes and LFOs, and how to add real-time change, using macros and automation.
Hi, I'm Rick Schmunk, and I'm an experienced music production educator and mentor, who loves to work with music enthusiasts, and help them to understand production techniques and software, so that they're free to create their best music. If you're new to Serum or synthesis, we'll cover everything from the basics to the advanced features, and I know that you'll not only learn how to use Serum, but also have a much better idea how to use the other software synthesizers you might own. I'm excited to share this course with you, so let's get started.
