Dive into the world of Modular Synthesis with Andrew Scheps

Modular Synthesizers are not only a sight to behold but fascinating instruments capable of producing unique sounds that people have never heard before. Now that you’ve mastered oscillators and filters (covered in Synth 101) and modulation and envelopes (covered in Synth 102), it’s time to dive deeper as Andrew Scheps explains the world of Modular Synthesis.

In this tutorial Andrew demonstrates how to:

  • Build a simple synthesizer
  • Use control voltages and audio to shape patches
  • Use an oscillator as a clock
  • Build a theremin
  • Create a droning patch

After you finish the video, we recommend checking out the free, open source Modular software synthesizer, VCVRack and applying what you have learned!

Andrew Scheps is a music producer, mixing engineer and record label owner based in the United Kingdom. He has received Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album for his work on Red Hot Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium, Album Of The Year for Adele's 21, and also Best Reggae Album for Ziggy Marley's Fly Rasta

Andrew started as a musician, but found that what he enjoyed most was working behind the scenes. This led him to study recording at the University of Miami. After graduating, he spent some time working for Synclavier, and then on the road with Stevie Wonder (as a keyboard tech) and Michael Jackson (mixing live sound). But he found his home in the studio, and he honed his craft working for producers such as Rob Cavallo, Don Was and Rick Rubin.

Scheps is known for his balanced and modern sounding mixes. He is also the owner and president of Tonequake Records
