I’m trying to focus on two things: Audiomulch and Ableton. My approach in general with synthesis has been to haphazardly turn knobs and hope something good happens. Of course there’s a place for experimentation, and oscillators on their own are fairly intuitive BUT…. When you start adding a bunch of filters and messing with the envelopes it quickly gets less intuitive, and I find myself wanting to be a little more scientific re cause and effect. In other words, I get frustrated easily if I can’t make the sound I want, so I need to improve my understanding of the tools. Luckily for me, the Audiomulch documentation is simple and to-the-point, so yay. (Thanks Ross!) And Ableton Live, well yeah.
