In Reason, the Subtractor is a polyphonic synthesizer based on subtractive synthesis, the method used in classic, analog synthesizers. Similar in layout to the analog flagships of the early 80s, the Subtractor is an easy way to create anything from warm pads to rumbling bass. In this class we will discuss the basic building blocks of synthesizers including oscillators, filters, envelopes, LFO's and how they all interact together. No prior knowledge of synthesis required: this is an introductory class geared towards anyone wanting to know more about how synths work.
