First we'll get you a tasty coffee, tea or your favorite beverage at Cornflower Coffee. Then we'll spend some time exploring what a synthesizer is, how they work and hear/see some examples. Next within the VCV Rack software we'll learn how to create a synthesizer piece by piece. Once we get these fundamentals of a synthesizer down in VCV Rack we'll see what else is possible in VCV Rack and beyond. We'll spend the second half of the class playing with a few different physical hardware synthesizers. Because we've learned what a synthesizer is typically made of in the first half of the class, we now can explore the sounds in a physical hardware synthesizer and make our own unique sounds with confidence while having some fun. By the time class is over you'll know how synthesizers work as well as what to look for if you're interested in buying or playing synths in the future.
