Hey! Thanks for your interest in this course, I really hope it will be of great use to you! Getting to know a synthesiser can be hard work sometimes, but with a little help you can grow really fast in your understanding of sound design. If you’ve watched the first two series on Zebra’s Oscillators and Filters you already know a great deal about this synthesizer, all what’s left are the different modules. The modules inside Zebra can be a little bit tricky, some of them have weird names, others look weird or don’t have an interface at all, this caused me to check them out way to late. But when I finally did my sound design improved a whole lot!
I started out by reading all sorts of articles explaining the origins of the modules, Ring Modulation, for example, has a long history in synthesizer land and it has been used over the years to create a variety of unique sounds. U-he takes all these classic modules a bit further, improving them in a way that is only possible in the digital domain. So after that I started practicing with these modules for over a year and got really confident with them. Now I want to share this knowledge with you and show you some of the great things that you can do with these modules.
I will teach you cool tricks that I’ve learned from others, classic sounds and lots of tricks that I’ve come up with myself. My goal is to teach you to work with a mindset wherein creativity and new ideas are constantly flowing, this way you will come up with amazing ideas yourself and share them with the world again. This way we make sure that our music keeps getting better and our sounds more awesome! I hope you gets lots of fun out of this course, and don’t forget to give me feedback or new ideas!
