The Foundation Of Synthesis 104: Control Voltage
Marc Doty—lead educator for The Bob Moog Foundation—is back with a series of tutorials in this course on Voltage Control.
But what is Voltage Control and how do you use it in the world of hardware synths? Well, here’s the story: In the early days of sound synthesis, if you wanted your sounds to change or evolve in any way whatsoever, you had to do it manually. Need the pitch to go up? Grab the the oscillator knob and turn it! Want the volume to change? Again, grab the volume knob! What about sequencing a series of notes? Well, before voltage control, you had to record every pitch onto magnetic tape and cut them all together in the order and rhythm that you wanted. It was hard work to create electronic music way back when!
Voltage control forever changed all that! And in this course Marc Doty shows how different hardware synth designers harness the power of VCs to transform and supercharge electronic music composition. Taken one step further you’ll see how Voltage Control was the mother of MIDI… and we all know how powerful MIDI is!
