School of Synthesis

Dean Friedman of New York School of Synthesis back in the day. This is a great intro to sound & synthesis. The video is old but dont forget that most of the synthesis basic stuff coming from the past.

Check out Dean Friedman on wikipedia , he is really interesting guy!

“In 1985, Friedman produced a seminal work on the newly emerging synthesizer industry called Complete Guide to Synthesizers, Sequencers, and Drum Machines. Whilst dated, this tome is still of use in evaluating devices that crop up on the second-hand market. Friedman also set up the “New York School of Synthesis” and provided a series of videos entitled “Intro to Synthesis”. Friedman presents the rudiments of this topic in an audio-visual format, whilst incorporating a unique sense of humor.” Note the videos must be from 1988 or later as they reference the Korg M1. Thanks goes to Caixa in the comments for catching this.
