In this introductory workshop, students will get to create different sound effects for film, video and multimedia as well as creating custom virtual instruments for music production. The course will be based on Ableton Live, a flexible and sophisticated digital audio workstation, and powerful free plugin synthesizers such as Synth1 and TyrellN6. Learn the basics of audio synthesis, sampling and effects.
- Sound design main tools overview: synthesizers, samplers, audio effects. Manipulation of audio files using Live’s “warping” engine.
- Sound synthesis basic theory and practical examples through specific exercises. Incorporating audio and MIDI effects to virtual instruments.
- Manipulating sounds with samplers. Sound libraries and field recording.
By the end of the course each student will have created a number of sound effects and synth patches to incorporate into their own personal sound library.
