NMC Learning at Home: The Synthesizer—Sound Painting (Part 3)

In Part 3 of The Synthesizer series, Evan the Educator will use a Minimoog to illustrate how a synth is excellent for controlling timbre or the quality of sound, tone colour, and character. In the process, he’ll show you how to craft different sounds and even share what they look like using a spectrogram.
