Designing Timbres by the Moog Foundation
This video introduces the “Designing Timbres” tutorial by explaining exactly what is going to happen within it. It features some of the music and synthesizers used in the rest of the tutorial.
“It doesn’t play chords!” -This is the complaint most heard in regard to monophonic analog synthesizers… but wait… if you have three oscillators and some awesome functionality like the Moog Voyager, there is an answer to this complaint. In this video, Marc shows you how you can generate a sort of controllable polyphony using the monophonic Moog Voyager!
In this video, Marc demonstrates the the functional benefit of a synthesizer like the Yamaha CS-15, which is essentially two different synthesizers stacked together. By altering settings in each division, interesting timbres can be created.
