Internationally renowned Eurorack expert DivKid (A.K.A. Ben Wilson) is here with this exclusive course on Oscillators. See all the different analog and digital oscillator modules in action and learn how to patch them up. Experience Eurorack with DivKid!

The Oscillator is the fundamental starting place in any Eurorack system. There are digital, analog and hybrid ones that are capable of creating multitudes of different wave shapes. There are also hundreds of Eurorack manufacturers whose oscillators all look and sound different. This makes it really hard to figure out how they work and which ones are right for you. That's why we contacted DivKid to make this exclusive course. No one knows Eurorack better or has as many oscillator modules to show!

One of the most exciting areas of modern music creation is modular synthesis, where you get to assemble your own flexible and customizable instruments using components (aka modules) from a variety of manufacturers. In this course, music industry veteran and synth designer Chris Meyer guides you through putting together a modular system and interconnecting it with the rest of your studio. He reviews typical module arrangements, explains how the modules talk to each other, and covers details such as the differences between waveforms, filter modes, envelope types, and more. This course will be based around the widely available Roland SYSTEM-500 Eurorack-standard synthesizer modules, complemented with modules from several other manufacturers. As most modules, synthesizer keyboards, and plugins are designed around the same principles, this course lets you dig deeper into synthesis and programming your sounds regardless of the equipment you own.

Topics include: 

* Putting a system together
* Getting sound in and out
* Patching a typical synthesizer "voice"
* Tuning voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs)
* Working with waveforms
* Using filter
* Exploring frequency modulation, waveshaping, oscillator sync, effects, and mor

Modular synths are back... and here to stay. And Rishabh Rajan is here to teach us all about the Moog Mother 32! So learn the Moog and modular synthesis at the same time in this wonderfully produced two-for-one course!

We love modular synthesis. Where else can you have such absolute control over every aspect of your sounds? With all the new interest in Eurorack, we’ve decided to dive into synthesis big time. That’s why we’re excited to bring you this truly great course by our esteemed synth trainer, Rishabh Rajan!

This course takes you on a control voltage journey though every aspect of the Moog Mother 32. You learn everything about its oscillators, filters VCAs, modulators and sequencer. You also learn all about the mysterious concept of voltage control which was developed simultaneously (yet independently) by the legendary fathers of modern synthesis: Donald Buchla and Robert Moog.

When you complete this course you will be a Moog Mother 32 expert and, at the same time, a lot more knowledgeable about voltage control modular synthesis! Sit back and plug in!
