This is a basic tutorial about synthesis techniques and related synths.
Many overlooked synths deserve much more interest than people think, the main reason they are overlooked it’s because people don’t know how to manage their sound engine to craft personal sounds.
Let’s take a look at the main categorys of synthesis :
- Frequency Modulation (FM)
- Sample & Synthesis (Romplers)
- Phase Distortion
- Linear Arithmetic

Let’s analize one by one…
