Introducing Jan’s Patchwork Corner, a Masterclass on Sound Design

Over at my soundware label Treeswift Audio, I’ve been recently working on a project that should be of interest to anyone who wants to delve deeper into creating sounds with synthesizers: Jan’s Patchwork Corner will be a series of workshop videos on synthesis and sound design. In each episode, I’ll take a deep dive into one of my synth patches – either from one of my commercial libraries or from a music production ­–, describe the thought process that went into every design decision, and explain how all the components work and come together to achieve the sound that I’m looking for. In a nutshell, I wanted to make the kind of tutorial that I would have wanted to be around back when I got into synthesis.

The first episode, in which I recreate a synth pad sound from my library Zebra Elementals: ISLA, is out now, and more are on the way. If you’re at all interested in synthesizers and how to get them to make sounds in a deliberate and purposeful way, keep an eye on the Watch page at Treeswift Audio or follow us on YouTube!
