Learning Modular Synthesis: Arturia Modular V

Into software synthesis, or curious about how the original modular Moog modular synthesizer worked? Then this course is for you. Using Arturia’s Modular V, I:

  • help you install and set up the Modular V software
  • show how to patch together modules in this virtual environment
  • reveal the fundamentals of how sound and harmonics work
  • explain the differences between oscillator waveshapes, filter types, and more
  • demonstrate each of the modules in a musical context
  • reveal advanced techniques including frequency and amplitude modulation
  • explore its effects and advanced filters

A list of all 31 movies in this over 3-hour course is shown at the bottom of this page. Here is the introductory video:

Still undecided? I’ve created a several posts featuring free-to-all sample movies from the Arturia Modular V course; feel free to sample these first:

Some of the feedback I’ve received on this course includes:

“This is a great tutorial. I’ve had this synth sitting on my machine for over a year and only played around with the presets, not really know ing what I was doing. You’ve inspired me to jump in and get my hands dirty creating something from scratch. Thank you.” – BR


“Wow, what a great tutorial! Very helpful indeed; thank you so much! ” – SA 


“Thank you! very clear tutorial :)” – AH


“A million thanks for this series!!” – EA


“You do a great job. You obviously thought about what you are going to do before you record your program. That is pretty rare…” – HM
