How To Make Music with Modular Synthesizers
Time & Location
About the Event
From building a classic analog synth patch to complex modulations and the total turnaround of each module's functionality.
In the first part of our workshop series about Modular Synthesis we are starting from basic synth patching and are going to reveal the hidden functionalities and advantages of modular synthesis and why it is so fascinating to use. This class is absolutely beginner friendly and will be the basis for the following workshop modules where we will guide you deeper into the world of modular synthesizers, sound design and analog music production.
* Creating a classic analog synth voice (VCO, VCF, VCA, ADSR)
* *Using modules in creative ways (VCO as an LFO, Filter as a VCO, LFO as a clock, envelope as slew limiter, VCO as clock, etc)
*** LFO vs. audio rate modulation (FM, AM, etc)
**** Hands on! Build Your own patch using a few simple (but versatile) modules, and compare results (to illustrate the range of sounds possible with just 3 / 4 modules)
>Why modular ?
Extended range on parameters, freedom of patching, happy accidents, experimentation, physical connection with a personalized instrument, amazing sound quality.
All you need to bring is your talent and engagement.
You will be guided by:
Halosaur (AKA Steph Lefrancois) is a music producer, recording engineer, live performer and teacher. His music is composed on an extensive modular setup, giving it a distinctive raw, exploratory vibe. Steph, who's also a drummer, focuses on groovy, intricate percussion, layered with evocative textures.
Over the past 20 years, Steph has dedicated his time to spreading knowledge, refining his craft, defining his sound and releasing on world-renowned labels such as R&S, KMS, Toolroom, and !K7, to name a few. Enriched by those diverse experiences and connections, he's now poised to channel a lifetime of inspiration, performing live on modular and Octatrack with one thing in mind: to make the crowd lose themselves on the dance floor.
Steph has shared his relaxed teaching style at Scheidersladen for 2 workshops, and, combined with his real life experience as a modular performer (as one half of Kitmun), delivers engaging and practical instruction.
