Our resident synthesist and electronic music performance artist, Richard Lainhart, is back with his extraordinary exploration into advanced sound synthesis. We asked Richard to put his amazing Buchla away for little while so he'd have time to create what we think is the "must have" video tome for anyone looking delve deeper into how synthesizers convert electricity into sound waves.

Richard carefully explains all the different kinds of additive synthesis from "ring modulation" to powerful "FM" and "cross modulation" techniques that can turn simple sine waves into powerful noise generators popular in the performance art and electronic music scene.

So if your looking to gain a deeper understanding of concepts that form the complex world of analog synthesis lend an eye and ear or two to this fantastic new tutorial by Richard Lainhart: Advanced Sound Synthesis.
