Sound Wave : Sound Design Challenge

Join us for a synthesis challenge, hosted by lecturer John Davies and online school co-ordinator Michael Denny.


This term’s brief will be based around producing an initial track idea using only synthesiser plugins.


The challenge will start bang-on 7:30pm (London time). You’ll then have until 8:45pm to produce a new 16 bar idea - any genre, any style, no limitations!

*You’ll upload a 16-bar bounce of wherever you’ve managed to get to by 8:45pm then enjoy a well-earned break. At 9pm we’ll have a quick listen to what y’all manage to come up with.

Sensei Challenge:

More experienced producers wanting a bit of an advanced workout can elect to take the SENSEI CHALLENGE - build a track using sounds from just one synthesiser plugin. (All elements in the track must be created using your chosen synthesiser - no other instruments, synthesisers, voices or external samples allowed, yikes!)
