Syntorial: The Ultimate Synthesizer Tutorial
"Syntorial - The Ultimate Synthesizer Tutorial
Syntorial is a fully interactive training program designed to help users program sounds quicker and easier. Syntorial differs from other synth tutorials in two very important ways:
1. It's software. The current offerings of synth tutorials are either books, videos, articles or websites. And while they can only present information, a program can interact with the user. And that's just what Syntorial does. Through a series of challenges Syntorial gradually builds up your sound design skills so that by the end of the entire tutorial, you're doing it. "Look Ma!"
2. Most tutorials focus on the technical ins-and-outs of synthesizers. Or, they show you how to make a few specific sounds. They fail to address the MOST important skill needed to program synthesizers: a trained ear. Using our Synthesis By Ear method, Syntorial takes you step-by-step through 58 different common synth parameters and trains your ear to instantly recognize how each one effects sound. "Seriosuly, Ma! Look at me! I'm doin' it!!!"
We've launched a KickStarter campaign to help finish development and get Syntorial out into the world. Go to http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/380200165/syntorial-the-ultimate-synthesizer-tutorial to learn more."
