LEVEL Beginner/Intermediate

This workshop will cover Ableton Synthesiser features and basic concepts of sound design.

During the workshop we will use Live’s own synths to create a collection of unique sounds all from scratch including evolving pad textures, sharp acid lines, and synthetic percussion.


Topics covered will include:

Synthesis Theory

Sound Generation & Modulation

Instrument Racks and Mapping

Effects Processing

Mark Towers has been working with electronic music since the late 90′s using an array of samplers, synthesizers, and sequencers, both hardware and software, and uses Ableton Live as a production centre and performance tool for his projects, including drum & bass, IDM, and ambient sound installations.

Mark has lectured for seven years at Leicester College, and runs the Foundation Degree in Creative Sound Technology with De Montfort University.
