I would like to pay for a virtual class and/or group lesson

Greetings!

I am a hobbyist, not a professional musician / sound designer.

I would like to more quickly “get into” our recently purchased UDO Super 6 as I have a full time job (and a half).

I would like to pay an expert user for either one-on-one tutoring (or perhaps if there is interest from other users at my “skill / knowledge” level, a group lesson) via video conference.

I have some experience with FM synthesis, understand the basics of LFOs for automating parameter changes and also envelopes (ADSR). But I have never used a synthesizer like this and certainly not the classic analog synthesizers that are mentioned in reviews of same, etc.

Thank you for anyone who might be able to either point me in the right direction (e.g., an online school or Patreon-like “creator” who provides lessons).

Thanks again!

I put together a playlist of synthesis tutorials collected across Youtube. I would start here for basics of subtractive synthesis (expand the menu top-right 1/51 for more videos).

I also did a walkthrough of the Super 6 in my review on my YT channel, where I go through each of the functions at a high level. Perhaps it will provide add’l insight for you.

What types of things are you looking to learn?

Thank you! I will work my way thru the playlist.

I am looking for someone to guide me through the process of creating various “categories” of sounds using the distinct features of this synth.

Say, recreating four of the presets from scratch.

Thanks again!
Jose

You also have the Marc Doty playlist with 23 vidéos explanations about Super 6

I used some basic lessons from Syntorial two years ago to learn synthesis. These things are easily applied to the Super 6. Along with the resources provided here, you’ll be up and running; designing your own sounds in no time!

This is in the playlist already linked above, but I wanted to specifically point to this video and say I learned more from this in one night than I did in a year and a half of trying to teach myself. He also uses a lot of classic synthesizers, so no screens or anything on these synths like the Super6.

If you want to read and get some very detailed explanations of how to make some common sounds, this series is excellent, if a bit long-winded:

Hi Jose, I am happy to help you on the Super6. It is an analogue synth of 12 vioces. Each voice has 2 oscillators. I don’t know if you read the User Manual, but it is well written and if anything is a bit too detailed. In other words, the UM is just right for you, because it explains things more fully than anyone who already understands synthesisers would want.

Your main dificulty with the Super6, compared to nearly all other synths is the lack of any LCD or OLED screen. Therefor you have to programme it by ear, and you cannot de-construct pre-set sounds. This is a big disadvantage in some ways, though the sounds are so much better than many other synths, which makes the Super6 one of the finest synths on the market.

Please use my email, if you find this posting helpful. I am fairly confident I do understand my Super6 pretty wel, and can explain things too.
