Online Course: Moog Subharmonicon Synthesizer

The Moog Subharmonicon is a unique semi-modular desktop synthesizer Get an in-depth understanding of this polyrhythmic analog synth in this course by sound designer and synth expert, Rishabh Rajan.  

If you like sonic experimentation, you'll love the Moog Subharmonicon! Inspired by early (and very rare) electronic instruments from the 1930s and 1940s (the Trautonium and the Rhythmicon), the Subharmonicon is not your conventional subtractive synth. With its 6-tone sound engine, multiple tuning systems, patchbay, and polyrhythmic sequencer, the Subharmonicon is perfect for creating complex sequences and textures. This course goes over every aspect of the synth, from the heritage of the instrument to its novel polyrhythmic sequencer and versatile semi-modular functionalities.

So sit back, grab your patching cables, and join your personal trainer Rishabh Rajan in this 20-tutorial course! Endless sequencing and synthesis possibilities await!
