It’s actually the oldest form of sound synthesis. It’s methods and techniques predate subtractive and FM synthesis.

Featuring more than 60 minutes of intensive video tuition, this course is broken up into 5 parts and covers everything from the theory behind Additive Synthesis to how to make sounds using harmonics and partials.

By the end of the 5 videos, you will be familiar with the concepts of Additive Synthesis and be comfortable using multiple software synthesizers that are either Additive in nature or have Additive engines.

As the name suggests, Additive synthesis involves adding together multiple basic waveforms to create more complex ones. Some of the most powerful VSTs including U-he Zebra, Logic Pro-X Alchemy, and a whole slew of NI Reaktor ensembles feature additive synthesis as part of their M.O.

In skilled hands, Additive Synthesis provides an amazing level of control and flexibility and can be used to create unique and unusual sounds. Difficult to master, it’s worth getting your head around if you want to design sounds that are truly original.
