Here is an interesting question sent to us via our website's contact form...

"How does Audio Masterclass think about audio?"

There are so many ways we could answer this, but if we strip things right down to the essence this is how we think...

At Audio Masterclass our prime directive has always been to concentrate on the basics of audio. We believe that if you can get these right, then everything else will follow. Conversely, if you don't have a firm grasp of the basics, you will never achieve a professional standard of work.

We have a motto - 'Simple tasks done to professional standards'.

There's a saying that a video is worth a thousand words. So here is an example of how a complex topic such as additive synthesis can be explained clearly by going right back to first principles.

If you watch this through to the end (where there's a demonstration of sampling too) then you will understand how Audio Masterclass works and how we can help you improve the quality of your work further towards professional standards.

This method can be used in audio DAW that has a signal generator. Why not have a go yourself?
