Classic synth, clear GUI with big knobs. Start out with one oscillator and add more as needed.

It is what I started out learning with.

:wink: too many knobs perhaps?

I knew that was a joke :lol:
It's all about the wavelets. I dream of the perfect additive synthesis.

Yeah, that would have been my first choice. But it doesn't have few things I would really like it to have. It's just for tutorial purposes, I like modulation matrix shown separately and all the classical waveforms available.

Edit says: Sry i only readed the headline not to entrypost.
But still apha ray is maybe not bad couse it makes the modulatians viewable ?

For a german beginner, i would recomend tubeohm alpha-ray.

Why ?

Couse its absolutly straight and has a very good manual.

http://www.tubeohm.com/TubeOhm/ALPHA-RAY-D.html

And no iam not related in any way to tubeohm, but as a german, i realy like to recommend for beginners to read the manual. A synth and a intro to subtractive synthesizers.
Who should complain ?

Thx tubeohm !

Edit says: Uhps, the manual is also in other languages available.

Just because it hasn't been mentioned yet (unless I overlooked it), there's also a free learning Synth from NI.

http://www.native-instruments.com/index ... analog&L=1

(haven't checked if it fullfills all the criteria in the opening post though)

Wow I never knew you could get this as a standalone plugin! This is pretty cool!

Nord Modular G2 demo?

It's as simple or complex as you want it to be. But it does not work as a plugin, and I don't know if you can save patches.

Thinking about it some more, the G2 demo is not a good suggestion. Sonigen modular seems like a better option, works standalone or as a plugin, and it's free. Basically, any free modular should do the job and is imho a great way to learn.

Of course, once we take the training wheels off, we should have a go at TyrellN6 or Podolski, and Crystal hopefully.


Wow, this looks like a great synth!

Somehow I'm liking the interface of kamiooka, being a beginner myself.

It is this the post for synth beginners? :P

I set up a little list of best free synths which you can learn.
Level 1 are easy ones. The ones you are looking for right now.
Level 2 are average ones. Try them in a couple of months, when you are accustomed to "level 1" synthesis and want a little more difficult synths.
Level 3 are advanced ones. In another couple of months (4 months from now) you could start with these too.

Level 1

GTG K1.3
Image

Logana
Image

Square 1
Image

CS33
Image

Level 2

Daedalus
Image

Tyrell N6
Image

Triangle 2
Image

Level 3

Oatmeal
Image

Atlantis
Image

KX Synth X16
Image

I hope you will find useful.
Just wanted to help you a bit.

Anyway Free Alpha is a good one to start with.
Be patient and never give up.

Have a nice day and good luck :)
