Percussive Synthesis using the Analog Keys or Four
By using envelopes to sharply modulate pitch, volume and harmonics I can synthesize a palette of percussive sounds. I make an introduction to percussive synthesis by using Softube Modular and then move on to the Analog Keys to construct and sequence my sounds.

You should be familiar with the Analog Keys/Four engine to follow this tutorial. Browse up on your knowledge by reading ”Appendix: A - Synth Track Parameters” in the 1.23 Keys/Four manual.

There will be a separate post available to the Compellably and Cosmically Curious bringing you the accompanying material to this tutorial.

Thanks for your valuable support!
