Celebrate ten years of Absynth with these tell-all, expose videos that explore this Native Instruments soft synth's every intimate detail. Watch and see why this updated virtual synth is the Go To instrument for the top synthesists and sound designers all over the world!
Absynth does just about every kind of synthesis available on Planet Earth, including: Additive, Subtractive, FM, Wavetable, Granular, Morphing and Sampling. It also comes fully loaded with a multitude of filters like the Supercomb, Cloudfilter and the Aetherizer. In fact, Absynth 5 does such weird-and-wild, whacked out alien stuff that we at mPV are convinced that its "code" had to originate from a galaxy far, far away. To confirm our suspicions, we've sent out an mPV Interplanetary NED to explore the possibilities.
A soft synth of this complexity needs a really clear and grounded trainer. That's why we chose our most down-to-earth, in-house, expert educator, Scott Freiman, to tame this aural beast! Who else but Scott could make sense of Absynth's 68-stage envelope generators and its 1800 sounds and effects settings?!
In this very deep tutorial, Scott leaves no knob unturned! First, he takes you on a journey through the history of Absynth from its groundbreaking beginnings to its present day configuration. From there he's off and running, uncovering Absynth's plethora of advanced features and its new easy-to-use Mutator sound generation technology. He covers the browser, its internal effects, spectrum editing, its matrix of modulators, the macros, audio modulation and lots, lots more. In fact, we at macProVideo.com guarantee that there isn't an Absynth tutorial like this one anywhere in the universe!
So plug in to this Scott Freiman video masterpiece and see why Absolute Absynth is absolutely the most awesome, authentic, au courant authority on NI's audadious audio soft synth: Absynth!

Excellent - Better than the Groove 3 course for Absynth. While it may not cut as much exhaustive depth as the Groove 3 'Absynth Explained', it describes the synth in a manner that is more relative to the subjective. In other words, it shows you how the features impact a 'real world' sound, often dissecting good patches that come with the program.
My first course with MPV and I'm greatly impressed!

This was instructive, in that it showed how to use and tweak different parts of Absynth. It didnt always explain what Absynth was actually doing.

I recently had a veteran sound designer show me the possibilities of Absynth. I came away inspired, but there was a large skill gap to fill. Scott's thorough walkthrough of Absynth brought me right up to speed. Just brilliant.
I shied away from the site for some time because I'm a Windows user, but everything transfers flawlessly and short cuts are described in both Windows and Mac terms. Very happy to be here!

Wow!! Another superb tutorial,Scott's knowledge of Absynth is fantastic!
Really good course,packed with detail.
Being a newcomer to Native Instuments,and the powerful Absynth 5 synth.
This tutorial gives me a very good and detailed understanding ,as to what makes Absynth tick,underneath its skin.
Really looking forward to using Absynth,and its prests,and design my own sounds,in the very near future.

This is not for the faint of heart. Goes through EVERY DETAIL of the core controls of Absynth- a full tour of the software. However I imagine a lighter survey course would not do Absynth justice, deep as it is. If you really want to find out what makes this software tick, this is for you. Thanks for the great overview!
