“Modulation” is one of the most important terms in music, and it gets used in so many ways! In this series of videos, made as a collaboration between Berklee and Beatport, I explore the importance of modulation within synthesis and using Native Instruments Massive and Kontakt. The great thing about these techniques is that they provide a starting point for an infinite number of sounds perfect for dance music(and other styles for sure). We start with a basic overview of synthesis and modulation, then we dive into two important techniques Risers and Rhythmic modulation. If you are comfortable with synthesis and modulation I would suggest you skip the first 3 videos and jump right in on the Massive Riser Modulation and Kontakt Rhythmic Modulation videos. ¬†Enjoy!

Here is a link to the videos on Beatport.

Have fun, Make music,
