Classic Analog in ANA 2 with P-LASK
First up we look at how oscillators work on older analog synths and then show how when we trigger the phase or duty cycle of the waveform by pressing a key, it can influence the sound produced.
This week we welcome back P-LASK to check out ways to make our digital, indestructible VST soft synths sound more analog.
There's a certain charm about failing circuits and worn-out components that hardware delivers, but getting your hands on a classic synth from the 70s and 80s is not a realistic choice for most of us!
Over these five videos, P-LASK runs through some simple techniques using controls you'll find on practically any synth that'll get your leads, basses or pads sounding like they're from a classic machine.
Rather than just using presets, you'll understand what's happening under the hood and create your own sounds that you can tweak just how you want.
