Audible Genius debuts Syntorial – Interactive Synthesizer Training Software

Audible Genius has announced the debut of Syntorial, synthesizer training software designed to teach musicians how to program synths and design sound.

Pairing video demonstrations with interactive challenges, Syntorial builds the user’s ability to program patches by ear. The built-in synthesizer includes 64 common synth parameters that are gradually introduced, one-by-one, to create a challenging yet enjoyable learning experience from start to finish.

Available for download on August 27th, Syntorial is the creation of Joe Hanley, a synth-loving musician determined to build a tutorial that would eliminate all of the science-speak and instead teach users the way in which each control affects sound—information they can immediately apply to real-life sound design situations. “In my early efforts to become a better synth programmer, I read a lot of books and articles and watched a lot of videos,” says Hanley. “And while I felt more knowledgeable, I was still unable to translate the sounds I was hearing into actual synth patches. Syntorial is intended to bridge that gap.”

Gone are the days of relying on presets. Syntorial advances the skill set of its users by teaching them to program the sounds they hear and gain a deep and intuitive understanding of the most common synth parameters, all at their own pace.

Syntorial features

  • 129 Interactive Challenges.
  • 147 Videos.
  • 706 Patches.
  • 64 Synth Parameters.
  • 39 Quizzes.
  • 33 “On Your Own” Tasks.

Syntorial for Windows and Mac is available to download for the introductory price of $99.99 USD through September 6th, 2013 (regular $129.99 USD).
