Dubspot Workshops

Wednesday, April 23rd

5:00pm - 6:00pm Integrating Max for Live into a Modular, Analog Hardware Setup w/ James Patrick
In this workshop, instructor James Patrick demonstrates how he uses Max for Live in conjunction with CV analog control.

6:00pm - 7:00pm The Power of One w/ Chris Petti
This workshop will demonstrate the power of analog technology using one Moog synth to make all the sounds for a song.

Thursday, April 24

5:00pm - 6:00pm Moog and Sampler collide to offer Polyphony, Phase Modulation, Wavetables, and more!
Dubspot instructor, James Patrick will teach participants how to use their monophonic Moog synthesizer in conjunction with Ableton Live 9 to inject harmonic and timbral complexity into the classic subtractive world. Explore entirely new sonic territories with these simple yet effective techniques.

6:00pm - 7:00pm An Analog Synthesizer’s Best Friend w/ Chris Petti
In this workshop, Chris Petti explains how to create sounds using advanced processing techniques with distortion. He will demonstrate techniques using analog distortion, digital distortion and parallel processing.

Friday, April 25

5:00pm - 6:00pm How Overtones & Harmonics Create Musical Sounds w/ James Patrick
In this workshop, James Patrick explains what harmonics are and why humans find them pleasing. James will demonstrate how our perceptions change via a variety of analog synthesis techniques and uncover many of the mysteries of what we perceive as “musical” sound.
6:00pm - 7:00pm The Best of Both Worlds w/ Chris Petti
In this workshop, Chris Petti will demonstrate how analog synthesizers can be used simultaneously with virtual plugins and softsynths such as Native Instruments Massive, Razor, Absynth and FM8.

Saturday, April 26

5:00pm - 6:00pm Generating & Controlling Randomness in the Modular Environment w/ James Patrick
The modular and CV world lends itself immediately to a greater understanding of not only how sound works, but also how to interact with each stage of the signal flow process along the way. Breathing life into each of these stages with subtle bits of modulation can oftentimes be the difference between a calculation and a truly visceral sonic mass. James demonstrates how we can employ a variety of tools (Reaktor, Max for Live, etc) to keep our analog sounds alive and compelling. With CV modulation, there are so many variables and random elements introduced With regard to the way sound is created. In this workshop, James Patrick will show participants how to purposefully create randomness and manipulate it in the modular environment.

6:00pm - 7:00pm Creative Sampling with Analog Instruments and Devices w/ Chris Petti
In this workshop, Chris Petti will show participants techniques for working creatively with analog instruments along with virtual samplers in a DAW.

Sunday, April 27

5:00pm - 6:00pm Controlling Synthesis Timbre and Tone Using Spectral Processing w/ James Patrick
In this workshop, James Patrick will explain Spectral Delays, Spectral Distortion, and Spectral Mixing. Learn and hear how these techniques can be used to enhance, brighten, widen, and shift your tones into fresh directions.

6:00pm - 7:00pm Using MIDI and Your DAW to Expand Your Moog Synthesizer w/ Chris Petti
This workshop shows participants how to use MIDI effects along with a Moog synthesizer to expand its sonic capabilities.
