What our students are saying

"You aren’t getting ambiguous theory with Ian. You are getting practical, usable information that is extremely beneficial if you are willing to put it into practice.

Shannon Weeks

Synth University Student

"Through Ian’s educational material I have learned more in the last year than the past 6 combined. His attention to detail and in depth training is second to none!"

Devin Adkins

Synth University Student

"Ian has a knack for distilling complex subjects into small topics and teaching those to others in a clear and fun way. I will continue to subscribe to anything that Ian produces in the future."

Hi, I'm Ian McIntosh

Producer and keyboardist at Jesus Culture, and founder of Synth University where I help keys and synth players master synthesis, sound design, and audio software.

I do this through my In Context Training method I employ here at Synth University so you can produce better albums, design better sounds, and create more amazing sequences and arrangements.

FM + Granular + Additive Synthesis (just one of many workshops available inside Synth University) is responsible for helping thousands of keys/synth players, producers, and sound designers just like you finally start understanding how the various FM, Granular, and Additive synths work.

Without it, you waste your time experimenting, never quite being sure that you know exactly what's happening when you tweak sounds in your software.

With it, you unlock the path to effortless sound design and stellar patches.

Now, go forth and start creating!
