Tone to drone - Introduction to SuperCollider for monome norns - On-demand

Membership plan: Getting Started | Topics: Sound Design

Course overview

SuperCollider is an amazing open-source audio synthesis and composition tool.

What you'll learn

  • Understand the fundamentals of SuperCollider code
  • Understand SuperCollider UGens for audio synthesis and mixing
  • Design your own drone which you can run from SuperCollider
  • Add SuperCollider code into a norns script

Who is this course for?

  • In this workshop we will gain understanding of SuperCollider while making a musical drone - a minimal sustained sound with dynamic harmonic variations, in the vein of Sunn O))) or La Monte Young. We will also learn how to add drones to the monome norns in your own drone script.
