Nick’s Tutorials releases Sound Design with the Operator Synthesizer in Ableton Live

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jun 24, 2009 - comment 0 comments

Nick’s Tutorials has released Sound Design with the Operator Synthesizer in Ableton Live, the third tutorial series for users of Ableton Live.

This series continues in the style of the first sound design series, but this time focusing on the world of FM synthesis and the unique timbres that these techniques can render.

One of the main goals of the series was to explain FM synthesis in a way that is accessible and practical, doing away with heavily mathematical descriptions in favor of learning through practical application. Along the way the viewer will learn how to create drums, pads, textures, and many things in between.

Additionally, there is a solid grounding in how timbres are built from harmonic and inharmonic overtones, and how this knowledge relates to the Operator interface.

The first series, Sound Design and Creative Audio Manipulation in Ableton Live, is a 5 hour course aimed at taking the Live user through a comprehensive set of exotic techniques for creating custom sounds from the ground up.

Examples of the techniques covered are creating a pseudo-wavetable synth out of a sampler, as well as transforming tiny samples into huge drums and atmospheric sounds through parameter modulation.

The second series, Sampling and Slicing in Ableton Live, is a 2 hour course on transitioning/developing a sample-based music workflow in Live.

The series starts with the task of properly routing your turntable or other audio source into Live, moves through recording and chopping your samples, and goes all the way to creatively layering and manipulating your slices to get bigger and better sounds.

“Sound Design and Creative Audio Manipulation in Ableton Live” is available for download for $37 USD, but you can get an hour and a half for $7 (and have the option to purchase the rest of the series if you so choose). “Sampling and Slicing in Ableton Live” is available for download for $25 USD.

Upon purchase, you will have immediate access to the video downloads as well as streaming versions of all of the videos to watch while downloading. Also note that there is a sale happening right now where both series can be purchased together for $50, a 20% discount.
