Forgive me Lord, For I have Synth: A Guide to Subtractive Synthesis - Zeros and Ones Subtractive synthesis is easily the most important type of synthesis you will come across. Why? Because everything that falls under the subtractive umbrella term has gone on to directly influence other types of synthesis such as additive, wavetable, frequency modulation and nearly anything else you can think of. The term is descriptive as it’s about sculpting sounds from harmonically rich waveforms using filters, envelopes, LFOs and amplitude shaping, and it’s the sound of quite literally thousands of records dating from the sixties right up until now. Let’s start out by having a look at the front panel of a few common analog synths. Moog Minimoog Where better to start than with where it all began – the Minimoog. Can’t afford the thousands these go for on eBay now? I’ve highlighted two key features of subtractive synthesis in red and blue. This section contains anything that generates a tone. Next, let’s look at our blue section, which the Moog calls Modifiers. Roland SH-101 Korg MS-20 LFOs

Event Opal - Studio Monitor (Tech) We all know how important high-quality monitoring is in the studio; there is simply no point in having all of the synths, effects processors and fancy plug-ins in the world if you can't do them and your mixes justice. We know too that monitors are available in all shapes and sizes and that decent quality monitoring is now available at a fraction of the price it was even a few years ago. However, the old adage of "you get what you pay for" is as true now as it was then. The design mission with the Opals was ambitious: to build the highest quality active monitoring system possible using a two-way system, which nevertheless matched performance levels of three-way systems. So, what performance can be expected from this involved design? The tweeter uses a neodymium magnet and a beryllium copper dome and offers a really pleasing sound which isn't unnecessarily fizzy or clattery and, most importantly, doesn't produce a sound which wears the ear out prematurely.

There are millions of ways to generate similar sounds, these are just a few. Some of them don't sound very good... So you should improve them! These are meant to be a starting point for your OWN patches. The settings should work with any synth that has the neccesary ingredients (right # and kind of oscillators, eg's, etc). A simple synth with a few oscillators is pretty easy in Plogue Bidule as well- if you're really into this, why not make your own custom synth in Plogue?
