Subtractive Synthesis: An Understanding
Join musician and producer David Alexander as he breaks down the basic concepts of subtractive synthesis, the basis of most electronic music. Subtractive synthesis is achieved by “subtracting” the harmonic content from a source signal via sound synthesis and then applying different filters to the audio signal to generate a richer more complex or interesting tone.
