Echo Sound Works - 5 Top Synths Strengths and Weaknesses TUTORIAL
08-2015 | 1.7 GB
In this tutorial series, Echo Sound Works compares 5 of the most popular software synthesizers on the market and how they stack up against each other. This isn’t a review so much as it is a comparison and an in depth look at how each of these instruments handle basic functions like generating tone in the oscillators and filtering out frequencies.
The 5 synths that we are going to look at are:
1.) NI Massive (ranked #5 by Computer Music 2015)
2.) Sylenth (ranked #4 by Computer Music 2015)
3.) Spire (ranked #6 by Computer Music 2015)
4.) Serum (ranked #1 by Computer Music 2015)
5.) NI Monarrk (ranked #19 by Computer Music 2015)
The reason we are using these 5 synths isn’t because they are the best out there, but because the all compliment each other nicely. Two of them are Wavetable synths, one is a very digital sounding VA synth, one is a hybrid synth and one is even a straight up Mini Moog emulation.
PART 1 - A short introductory video on what this series covers.
PART 2 - Looks at how the synths just naturally have their own tone and sound. We examine how each one not only sounds different at the most basic levels of synthesis, but compare these findings using an oscilloscope.
PART 3 - This section compares each synths strengths and weaknesses and why it’s good to use a few different types of synths in your productions.
