MORE THAN JUST A SYNTH TUTORIAL

INTERACTIVE LEARNING

Syntorial doesn’t just show you how synth programming works. It engages you in 129 Interactive Challenges in which you program patches on a built-in synth. You aren’t just learning how to design sound, you are becoming a sound designer.

FOR MUSICIANS, NOT PHYSICISTS

Image
Instead of talking about the science and physics behind synthesizers, Syntorial will show you how each control effects sound, as well as when, why and how you would use them when designing sounds. This is information that you can immediately apply to real-life situations.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE EAR

Image
One step at a time, Syntorial trains your ear to recognize how each control shapes and manipulates sound. By the end of the program you’ll be able to take the sounds you hear and re-create them, completely by ear.

SYNTH PLUGIN INCLUDED

Image
Syntorial’s built-in synth, known as Primer, also comes as a VST/AU plugin, included with your purchase of Syntorial. This way you can take the very synth that you’re training on, and use it in any recording software that accepts VST and AU plugins.

EXPANDABLE

Along with the 199 core essential lessons that come with Syntorial, additional Lesson Packs expand your learning experience into other parts of the synth world. Check out the current lineup.

“In all of my research, I haven’t found another piece of software that teaches synthesis as well as Syntorial. It moves at a great pace, and the logical sequence of the lessons truly trains the ears to hear the slight differences in tone when adjusting the various parameters. It is the perfect tool for anyone looking to increase their understanding of the complex world of sound design.” – Keith Hancock, 2017 Grammy Music Educator of the Year

“Syntorial is the absolute holy grail for producers who want to master their synth sounds. After years of blindly tweaking presets and trying to recreate synth patches from YouTube tutorials, we finally found what we needed: Syntorial.“ – Captain Cuts, Songwriting/Production team (Walk the Moon, Grouplove, Tove Lo, The Chainsmokers)
