See how Control Voltages changed the world of electronic music and synthesis...
Marc Doty—lead educator for The Bob Moog Foundation—is back with a series of tutorials in this course on Voltage Control.
But what is Voltage Control and how do you use it in the world of hardware synths? Well, here's the story: In the early days of sound synthesis, if you wanted your sounds to change or evolve in any way whatsoever, you had to do it manually. Need the pitch to go up? Grab the the oscillator knob and turn it! Want the volume to change? Again, grab the volume knob! What about sequencing a series of notes? Well, before voltage control, you had to record every pitch onto magnetic tape and cut them all together in the order and rhythm that you wanted. It was hard work to create electronic music way back when!
Voltage control forever changed all that! And in this course Marc Doty shows how different hardware synth designers harness the power of VCs to transform and supercharge electronic music composition. Taken one step further you'll see how Voltage Control was the mother of MIDI... and we all know how powerful MIDI is!
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!

Pretty good course. Thoroughly explains the foundation of envelops and modulation which is always good to learn or re-enforce knowledge of synthesis.
Really good stuff to know and well explained! Makes you want to turn some knobs!
Another informative tutorial. Using control voltage for modulation can be as interesting as lfos.
Another excellent course brought to you by the moog foundation and askvideo. I highly recommend.
Great course! Great content and well explained. .....
Marc Doty's examples are second to none!! I really enjoyed the section on envelopes, as it helped me understand some nuances that have been plaguing me for some time! Great series MacPro!
Good overview of how voltage is used within a synth (and from external sources) to control amplitude, pitch, filters, using envelopes, etc.
Love it! Explanation is super clear.
