This course will be focused primarily on three different types of synthesis that are employed by different virtual instruments in Ableton Live. You'll learn about subtractive synthesis using the analog instrument, frequency modulation (FM) synthesis with operator, and we'll also explore granular synthesis using the sampler instrument. We will look at a few Max for Live devices (such as the drum synths and standalone LFO) that can be useful aids in sound design.

By the end of the course, you will be able to make a wide variety of sounds from scratch using these instruments and be able to save them to their user library, making you reliant on presets, and helping you achieve a more personal and unique sound.
