Comments about Native Instruments Absynth 3 Tutorial DVD:
This is the standard by which all synth tutorials should be made, period! Crystal clear, concise and complete! The video is extremelly detailed and let me rephrase this, Absynth entails a complex architecture, that is not easily understood by most of the synthesis newcomers by just plugging it in and trying to figure it out...The reason for this is due to the fact that most likely, the last 30 years of synthesis knowledge have been packed into this amazing artform of a synth and it does it all so transparently by adding it's own NI flavors of custom syntesis features! Kudos to NI for delivering masterpiece synth Absynth! In the tutorial DVD, Master synthesis guru "Brian Smith" from NI, Berlin, takes us deep within the abyssal architecture that is Absynth with almost a child like enthusiasm for the various features of this deep synth and he does this without breaking a sweat! He is very coherent as a presenter/sound designer as he strolls off explaining the rich Absynth feature set, not skimping on it's vast array of features and going through the various synth sections methodically with you step by step. He quite often presents techniques and his own insight gathered from hands on experience throughout the length of the tutorial while he manages to masterfully create his own simplified presets for the sake of clarity. At the end of the more advanced sections he will often use gorgeous granular synthesis models and sampled waveforms to create rythmic pitch envelopes for example, since the flexible, feature rich envelopes are the main reasons why people get into Absynth in the first place! The envelopes sections and LFO sections are a must! That section of the tutorial would make it worth the money spent on this tutorial alone...I'm not new to synthesis. I own several Korg hardware synths (AMS, sampled and FM syntesis). I also own just about every NI synth released including Massive and Reaktor and their latest KORE subsystem and I must say these guys are the true masters of synthesized sound in recent times as you will find out from the stellar reviews just about everywhere! In my opinion (shared by many other synth freaks) NI has revolutionized various forms of sound synthesis to date and if you don't believe it, just look at their not too shabby credits in the sound FX arena of the movie industry! Absynth is the synth of choice for surround sound creation, so you are rolling with a bit more than a winning synth + greatest tutorial on sound design combination PERIOD! I am also fortunate to have acquired Absynth 4 from their collection and have recently bought the Absynth 3 DVD to further educate myself and I cannot speak enough for this DVD...If this video was scratched or lost, I would order it again and again and I would buy more copies as a gift for those interested in sound synthesis! Yes, NI products are just that great and no, I don't work for them or are endorsed by them! Happy Synth Programming to all and thanks NI for the gift of excellent sound! Also, great job Mr. Brian Smith, looking forward to more of your tutorials in the future...
