What is the difference between serial and parallel configuration in operator?

In parallel, the oscillators function independently. In serial, every oscillators is modulated by the oscillator above it. To learn more about this, check out our music production masterclass or get in touch with us.

How are Hardware Synthesizers different from Software Synthesizers ?

Hardware or analog synthesizers work with pure electricity. Most software synths are based on hardware synths, and are hence a digital imitation. The concepts discussed are originally are very much applicable to analog synthesizers.

How can I learn more about sound designing with Synthesizers?

Check out our masterclass on music production, where we discuss synthesis in much more detail, along with various other aspects of Music Production.

Can ADSR Envelopes be used to affect other elements like Filters and Pitch ?

Yes ADSR Envelopes open up a lot of creative possibilities that lead to unique sound design. For a deeper understanding of Music production using live, get in touch to learn more about our masterclasses.

Can we control Synths like Operator using a midi controller?

Yes ! A basic understanding of synthesis as well as MIDI mapping with a controller is necessary to achieve this.
