Production Basics #10 – Subtractive Synthesis II

Subtractive Synthesis Part 2

Let’s continue down the signal path of a subtractive synthesizer. In part 9 we got some insight into oscillators and other common parameters. In this part, we’ll discuss filters. But first, let’s talk quickly about the mixer. Mixer Since most synthesizers have multiple oscillators, we need some way to sum all outputs together. This is […]

Production Basics #9 – Subtractive Synthesis I

Subtractive Synthesis Part 1

In part 8 of this production basics series, we’ve introduced some synthesis techniques. Before we dive into advanced synthesis techniques we will start with the basics. Subtractive synthesis is used in 90% of the synth’s you’re likely going to use and isn’t that difficult to understand. We will look at all the parts that go […]
