Don’t know what an LFO or a triangle wave is? That’s okay, there is whole lot to know when it comes to the art of synthesis! Fortunately, the Bob Moog Foundation has us covered.

Founded in honor of late inventor and synth designer Bob Moog, the foundation is dedicated to exploring the science of sound, and as part of that effort, has made a series of helpful diagrams available which explain the basics of synthesis in a way we can all understand. Tackling subjects like waveforms, filters, harmonics, LFOs, and more the easy-to-comprehend diagrams can be found here. Furthermore, the diagrams have also been made into a series of 11″ x 17″ posters, which can be purchased here and subsequently hung in your studio or bedroom for further studying. Whichever way you choose, we suggest you go get your learn on!
