Electronic music production - Synthesis and sampling

Precio primer año €300

Description

This course will further your knowledge of electronic instruments as tools for designing sound and their almost infinite creative possibilities in the production of electronic music.

In the first part of the course, you will analyze the blocks of synthesizers, which include oscillators, filters, and modulators, and which will allow you to handle their parameters with ease and in a practical way, so that styles such as house, techno, trance or EDM, in general, will no longer be a secret to you.

In the second part of the course, you will learn about samplers and how to use audio samples to unleash your creativity and understand the processes that allow you to create tracks in urban styles such as trap or hip-hop. As in the first term, the software you will use is Ableton Live, one of the most advanced programs for the production of electronic music.

This course has a duration of one term (11 weeks). Completion of this course allows you to continue your studies for our Electronic Music Certification, dedicated to Processing and Mixing.
