Kadenze allows students freedom in the learning experience.  Instead of having deadlines, Kadenze allows students to learn at their own pace according to their own personal timeline. Kadenze’s Adaptive Mode is a self-paced learning option with no time constraints on the completion of coursework. Accessible in most courses, including “Designing Synthesizer Sounds”, Adaptive Mode allows students to participate when they are ready to learn, and when they want to learn. This option is great for relieving students from the pressure of required deadlines and otherwise impractical time-constraints.

Course Outcomes and Cost

Of course, students get what you put into it. Exposure and enrichment come to those who take this opportunity to learn how to design synthesizer sounds. Kadenze can be the first look at a new career as a music producer. It can also help a new artist create their first release. Time is the only cost.

Better yet, this course is one of the few that is entirely free of charge, unlike other course offerings through Kadenze. Now, this may seem contradictory,  course participation is open only to members that pay a once-monthly membership fee of $20.00. It is worth it. However, if a student is not satisfied, they can withdraw at any time without negative consequences. Later, they can simply re-enroll when they are back on the saddle.

About the Course

Designing Synthesizer Sounds teaches students to program modern sound synthesizers with common methods of synthesis and to produce full-length music productions. More detailed course objectives are available from the course description webpage. Otherwise, read on for a  basic understanding of “Designing Synthesizer Sounds”.

 It focuses on the musical and emotional implications of synthesizer components and techniques: envelopes, LFO’s, filters, oscillators, modulation, and audio effects.

In other words, students will engage a further understanding of making sounds from the programming options commonly present within modern synthesizers. Therefore, students can easily access the understanding of synthesizers and achieve the sounds they have always wanted to hear as music.
