This is just a simple tutorial of what an ADSR envelope is. Some synthesizers may use an ADSSR envelope, the extra "S" being "slope", which is the time it takes for decay to change into sustain phase. This information is necessary for knowing how to create right the sounds at the right time.
This project uses an Arduino Mega, a resistive touchpad, and an 8×8 LED matrix to create a simple digital audio workstation and synthesizer. You can compose and play songs in real time and use different types of sounds.
I think this is both really awesome and impressive. I personally would like to learn how to make a synthesizer myself, and this project certianly offers much inspiration. The finish product appears to be relatively simple, and I appreciate the amount of work spent on it.
I'm happy to see that this information is available for anyone who wants to make their own synthesizer. This also gives the reader insight on making a budgeted synthesizer, which is useful to the average hobbyist looking to simply build their own. This is great for learning more about synthesizers because it allows you to be more hands on with the technology and learn exactly how the synthesizer works.
I personally own this synthesis creation device; it's certainly worth the $50. This unique program gives a visual perspective when creating different synths sounds, which is pretty cool. Similar to Massive, this program is created by Native Instruments and is easily compatible with other DAWs (Digital Audio Workspace), such as Ableton. I really like the visual aspect of this product because its neat to see the waveforms changing while creating different sounds.
Kraft Music - Korg KingKORG Synth Demo with Rich Formidoni was uploaded by: kraftmusicDuration: 507Rating:
Ricky Boardman's insight:
This synthesizer is one of the latest model synthesizers available by Korg. Priced at $1299, this synthesizer offers a variety of tweakable sounds with its plethora of modulation knobs. With a gold finish, this synthesizer offers the potential needed to unleash the full possiblities of its user, and it can certainly do this with ease. I like this synthesizer because it is simply a well-built machine, and gets the job done.
Arduino has found its way into yet another musical device. I came across the 'UFO' while in Berlin. It's a MIDI controller that lets you compose music or control synthesizers by waving your hands about.
I'm not sure what practical use this device has, perhaps for the interesting fact that you don't touch anything to play it, much like the theremin. It's a weird product, but could be useful when playing with different sounds or to confuse people while you're waving your arms in the air over an electronic plate.
Easy, but so beautiful ! The Korg Poly-800 is a synthesizer released by Korg in 1983. These are not factory presets!
Ricky Boardman's insight:
I own this synthesizer, and it really does sound like the classic synth- pop sounds from the 80's. I bought this for $50 (a steal), and it works perfectly. It's great having an archive of vintage sounds to use at my disposal, and is necessary for recreating any 80s song. This was supposively the first affordable polyphonic synthesizer released by Korg, with prices beginning at $725, and for 1983, that's pretty expensive. It's really funny how much technology has progressed....the only downfall to owning this is the time it takes to program each sound in, but then again its from 1983, so this synthesizer is every bit worth the time to play.
This song, soon to be released on Com Truise upcoming EP "Wave 1" in Februaury, offers the classic sounds of synthesizers with an upbeat pop rythm. I'm excited to hear this 80's inspired synth album, and Com Truise proves to offer a modern and hip perspective time and time again.
Robert Moog, EDM pioneer, inducted into Inventors Hall of Fame Los Angeles Times “The Moog sound is the heart and soul of music from the '60s to the present, from rock and roll to prog rock to R&B to electronic music to country music,” said Rick...
Ricky Boardman's insight:
Robert Moog is the one to thank for the initial creation of synthesizers, and I myself appreciate his genius and ingenuity. If he never developed the synthesizer, music today would be extremely different, since synth sounds are prevelent in almost all modern pop music.
Native Instruments MASSIVE. This synth rightfully deserves its name in that it is a VERY POWERFUL synth.
Massive is the "go to synth" for Dubstep and Electro House producers. Its powerful tripple oscillator ability, envelope, modulation, LFO, and filter functionality is quite MASSIVE in itself.
The article goes into detail about routing with Massive and how it can be use with the built in controls. It also discusses the main functionality of this BEAST of a synth. It's a great synth to start with for ANY producer.
Lastly, it goes to say that names such as: Assemblage 23, Depeche Mode and Andrew Phillpott have all used Massive. Youtube is LOADED with video tutorials on Massive as it's following base is HUGE! Massive is a great synth, I highly recommend it.
There are several forms of synthesis; Massive is subtractive synthesis. This means that pitch, harmonics, wavetype, oscilliation, and filters are changed and/or subtracted from a static note. Massive is pretty cheap and easy to use, and is quite compatible with other programs such as the DAW Ableton. I like this product because it is easy to use and can create some pretty interesting and useful sounds for any type of music.
