Program Description

Event Details

Explore the sea of sound with our summer series on synthesizers! We'll cover the basics each week, and then go in depth with each component of a synthesizer and learn how to make your own instruments!

This week we'll learn about the different types of sound oscillators on a synthesizer — sine, triangle, square, and sawtooth — and how they relate to real-world instruments. We'll also learn how to "stack" oscillators to create new and interesting sounds.
