Ableton Learning Synths

Ableton has launched Learning Synths, a free desktop and mobile microsite that imparts synth knowledge interactively.

If you’re a newcomer to synthesis, Learning Synths will be helpful. Learn about synthesizers, oscillators, filters, envelopes and LFOs by simply clicking/dragging your cursor within the designated ‘instrument’ area. The site also deconstructs classic synth sounds, giving you a detailed overview of their ingredients.

All the sounds you hear on Learning Synths are powered by a two-oscillator monosynth. Experts who wish to skip the lessons can dive straight into this instrument and play with its range of presets and sequences. There’s also an added bonus for Chrome users, who’ll be able to play the synth with a compatible MIDI controller.
