Rounds is both a synth and morphing sequencer and the DNA of these two are so intertwined that it actually represents a complete paradigm shift in the way we think about sound design. Matt teaches you all about Rounds' advanced sound engines that span the spectrum from analog subtractive synthesis to digital FM (frequency modulation) architecture.
But that's just a part of the Rounds story. The second half of this must-watch course explains Rounds' unique and adventurous voice programmer. It is here that maestro Cellitti explains how to program and perform using Rounds' 32 sound slots to morph, expand, modulate and destroy this synth's collection of filters, processors and much more.
It always amazes us to see what cool things synth designers can construct using the Reaktor platform. Rounds, by the sonic geniuses at Native Instruments, is no exception. As you complete this course we know that your imagination will be sparked by the creative possibilities of this amazing synth. So sit back and learn Native Instruments Rounds from expert trainer Matt Celiitti!
Great tutorial! I've often tried to use rounds in the past, but was completely lost. Now, I finally got a decent understanding of this mighty tool! :-) I found the deconstruction of presets particularly helpful.

It was very thorough. Took me a few sessions to work through this whole course but I would never have near the understanding of it that I do now. Thanks

Well done, Matt, as usual!
The perfect starting point to understand concepts and functionalities of this OUTSTANDING instrument.

This is an incredibly useful course. And the tutor's explanations are spot on, with very relevant and practical examples. I'll be diving into Rounds now, and it may just end up being my go-to synth. It's an incredible piece of software, and can really help push my creativity to another level.

Couldn't wrap my head around this instrument and couldn't see where I'd use it as much either, until this course. This is definitely something for the sound-shapers at heart. Thanks Matt!

Thank you Matt! I took a maschine course with Matt and loved it. And had the same experience on this Rounds course. He knows his stuff. Very easy to follow. And he always shares tips and tricks which his courses more fun. Highly recommend.
