Ableton teaches synthesizer basics from the comfort of a browser

From creating grungy music with drone motors to perfecting DIY digital setups and recreating 60-year-old music machines, there are plenty of cool things you can do with synthesizers. But synths can be hard to understand, and if you're unfamiliar with them, you might feel a little left out. Ableton wants to change that. The company's new Learning Synths interactive website offers step-by-step synthesizer lessons, followed by a "playground," where you can put your new skills to the test.

Learning Synths is free and works on any browser. You can start with the basics, or if you already have an understanding of amplitude and pitch, you can jump right into sound design. The lessons are presented in a very Ableton-way, with monochrome geometric shapes that users can manipulate to produce different sounds. Don't be fooled by the simple interface, though. While the lessons are straightforward, they contain plenty of substance, and you can play around with envelopes, oscillators, filters and more.

A couple years ago, Ableton introduced a similar tool, Learning Music, meant to teach users the basics of music production. That also included mini-lessons, on things like beats and notes, and it featured deconstructed real-world songs like "All the Single Ladies" to experiment with. Like Learning Music, Learning Synths is simple and easy to follow, and there's a good chance you'll walk away with fresh (or at least refreshed) synth insights. Maybe you'll even put them to the test on other Ableton products.

Synth 101: Learning the Basics

Synthesizers are enjoying their biggest wave of popularity since they first came onto the mainstream cultural radar in the 1970s and 1980s.

Are you wondering what the fuss is all about?

Find out in the free “Synth 101” three-part tutorial available at yamahasynth.com – an online community for Yamaha synthesizer, workstation and stage piano users seeking tips, sound libraries and support.

In Part I you’ll learn what a synthesizer is and what makes it different from other kinds of electronic keyboards. You’ll also find an introduction to various synth techniques and definitions of basic terms such as waveform, filtering, and software synthesizers.

Part II takes a deeper dive into the many different musical purposes of synthesis (i.e., emulating real sounds versus creating never-before-heard ones) and provides a detailed answer to the all-important question, “What’s the difference between analog and digital?”

Finally, Part III covers the “how” – the various methods synthesizers use to create their sounds, including comprehensive definitions of subtractive, additive and FM synthesis, as well as sampling and modeling – along with the pros and cons of each.

I mask repetition & learning through gamifying my lessons and connecting with my students' interests. Many of us know what we want to accomplish, but for some reason, we have trouble motivating ourselves to manifest our desires. My lessons aim to completely solve this issue by making work into play.

To say we are a boutique music school would be an understatement. More than the superior technical and functional training WVS provides, we have had our most-significant successes in the lives that we have changed, careers forged and TANGIBLE results we've achieved through our students (both our professional and, in some cases, legendary singers as well as our novices). My job is to make sure that every client gets optimized training and an experience that is profound and worth far more than the tuition they pay. If neither myself nor my staff is the right fit, I want to put them in the right hands regardless of what that costs me in time and ... View Profile

I started playing the piano in 1974 almost 46 years ago. I also played professionally for over 22 years and studied music theory and improvisation at the Harris Music Academy for 4 years so I have a lot of experience that many do not have. I started teaching in 2005 and absolutely love what I do. The biggest element that makes me stand out as a teacher is that I can teach students how to open up with their creative imagination and allow them to open up once the foundations are learned. (Many teachers are strictly by the book and will not let the student think outside the box) and that’s a shame. Any art is the freedom of self expression ... View Profile

Over twenty years of playing all my taught instruments has shown me there is not one specific way to teach music to every person, so I change my curriculum for every student and completely customize what you learn to how you learn, and what you're interested in! I started teaching music lessons in after school programs when I was eleven and fell totally in love. I continued to do this for many years driving to neighboring towns, volunteering at church youth groups and local Boys and Girls Club all around my hometown.  In Portland I've been gigging, playing on records, recording music for films, and volunteering every week at Nonprofit Mu ...
