Modular Synthesizers are not only a sight to behold but fascinating instruments capable of producing unique sounds that people have never heard before. Now that you’ve mastered oscillators and filters (covered in Synth 101) and modulation and envelopes (covered in Synth 102), it’s time to dive deeper as Andrew Scheps explains the world of Modular Synthesis.
In this tutorial Andrew demonstrates how to:
Build a simple synthesizer
Use control voltages and audio to shape patches
Use an oscillator as a clock
Build a theremin
Create a droning patch
After you finish the video, we recommend checking out the free, open source Modular software synthesizer, VCVRack and applying what you have learned!

Another great learning experience and a chance to add another string to my bow - and all delivered by the erudite Andrew Scheps. I could listen to him talk about this stuff for hours...
For anyone in doubt, it's worth downloading the free synth mentioned and giving it a try. It takes a while to get your head around it if, like me, you're a novice, but it's worth it!

An interesting exploration into another facet of Andrew Scheps as a sound designer. It’s interesting to hear what sonically stimulates such a brilliant mind and developed ears. This video also provides a glimpse into a more creative and perhaps vulnerable Scheps. A contrast to the rational confident authority we know and love. Et voila! ;)
