OSCILLATORS: This is the first part of a multiple video series dedicated to teaching basic concepts of synthesis for anyone who is interested, especially those who are musicians who are formally trained in music but do not have a complete grasp on synthesizers.

This is a part of many short synth videos in this playlist dedicated to instruction and entertainment: in this particular video we dive right into oscillators, their different timbres, how to subtract those higher harmonics in each sound using low-pass filters, and utilize amp envelopes on the oscillators and filters to create the proper texture to do a rough imitation of the Stranger Things intro sequence!
