Learn all about Filters from synthesist Marc Doty and support the educational activities of the Bob Moog Foundation all at the same time...
If Oscillators generate sound, then do Filters degenerate sound? Find out in this third course in the 6-part series on the Foundation of Synthesis that is all about Filters and Subtractive Synthesis. Bob Moog Foundation lead educator, Marc Doty, introduces you to the basic concepts of sound filtration. You’ll learn about cut-off frequencies, resonance and see every resulting waveform displayed on an Oscilloscope.
Filters are some of the most important devices in the synthesists tool box. They give sounds their unique characteristics. They allow the synthesist to sculpt the sound to reveal the hidden sonic qualities deep inside. Learn all about the different kinds of filters and how they are actualized by the designers of great hardware synths. Learn how these filter designs are, in many respects, what makes one synthesizer sound uniquely different from another!
Throughout this series Marc demonstrates the science of sound with informative animations and hands-on demonstrations of his collection of classic synths from many different designers! It’s great to see how these fantastic instruments deploy their sonic technologies.
Bob Moog was an early pioneer and inventor of voltage controlled analog synthesizers. He revolutionized the music industry and his ideas, inventions and musical instruments have dominated the sound of music for more than 30 years. Aside from being an innovator, Dr. Bob was an outspoken advocate of education. The Bob Moog Foundation, created by his daughter, Michelle Moog-Kousa, continues his legacy with Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, the preservation of his inventions and the development of the Moogseum – the only museum of its kind dedicated to the advancement of sonic education. We hope you will help support the BMF's efforts by watching these courses with the knowledge that a large portion of the proceeds go to support their awesome efforts!
So sit back, boost the bass control, and proceed on your journey into the Foundation of Synthesis with Marc Doty, and the Bob Moog Foundation. Be sure to watch all 6 of the BMF's courses on filters, modulation, oscillators and more!

This is a very complete course with a lot of details. I will now be able to understand and apply this knowledge to virtual synth and get better and faster results. Excellent work!!
Very interesting and made easy to understand! Also fun to see same thing on many different synthesizers.
Another good synthesis tutorial, I have learned a lot from this series and will continue the rest soon
Brilliant course. I find synthesis fascinating (although I didn't quite get it before). It took a course like this to get me engaged.
Great tutorial set. Really delves into the concepts of analog filters. The ideas covered in this tutorial are applicable to all synth types, whether analog, modular, or digital.
Very, what seems to me, in depth look at Filters. Again the repetitiveness drove the point and understanding home for me.
it is interesting to see the comparison of the same voice controls in different synths.
Good Course, lots of cool sounds and transferable skills, however some duplication or mislabelling on the videos was annoying..
A very informative course, once again. The stuff in the beginning most viewers probably know about already but I got a lot out of the latter ones involving modulation of filters.
This was a really good course! Mr. Doty is splendid in this series. Even though I've never owned any hardware synths, the knowledge is helping my with the use of my software synths.. Good gig MacPro!!
Good description of filters on a few Moog synths, with a lot of played examples to hear how the sound is affected.
Very good tutorial. I have spent much time with very good voltage controlled synths and such equipment. The way that the video is delivered, helps us consider sound as a raw material that can be sculpted. The removal of a portion of a signal from the precursory signal, is an interesting concept to explore. I hope to see more from this series, perhaps a look at some larger modular systems. It was a very enjoyable show
