Masterclass - Demystifying the synthesizer

There’s a lot more to synthesizers than big 80s hair; so much in fact that it can be a pretty daunting tool for many musicians. Where to begin mastering it? How do you create the incredible sound in your head on a synthesizer? And most importantly, what does that button do?

Presented by musician and digital music expert Tristan Malloch, this webinar will delve into the history and use of synthesizers from Depeche Mode to Pharrell Williams, and then get hands on with Korg’s new ARP Odyssey – the Lamborghini of the synth world.

From jazz to heavy metal, computer games to film scores, synthesizers are embedded in music, so quit denying it and join us on an ARP Odyssey. We’ll have you adding new sounds and layers to your musical works within the hour.
