Content builds on itself from course to course. While it is not required that you go through both courses in their entirety it is recommended. A lot of cursory synthesis topics are glossed over or skipped entirely because they have already been covered. For this course I expect that you view/have viewed the following videos pertaining to synthesis and sampling from courses 101 and 102. Remember it’s about the overarching methods and techniques not specific synthesizers (plugins). If someone does a really good job teaching synthesis the synthesizer is irrelevant.
Introduction to Computer Music Creation
Producing on a Budget
In this course I will be using a lot of plugins. Some of these are free and some of these are paid. I’m not recommending or endorsing ANYTHING. A goal of this course is to get you confident in your own ear so that you can decide what synthesizers and samplers are right for you and your music. In theory after you view this course you should have little to no trouble navigating and using any software synthesizer.
