Masterful Transitions - The Art Of The In Between

The ideas and concepts you and your team need to know to pull off perfect transitions.

Have you ever thought about how little time is spent on understanding that small yet significant space in a setlist? It’s really a fascinating thought. How much silence is too much? What’s the best way to create seamless transitions? How do you allow for spontaneous while still keeping some amount of intentionality between songs?


+ How to flow in between songs

+ Understanding the role of silence

+ How to think 3 steps ahead - and be prepared for anything

+ When to plan transitions and when not to

+ How to include patch changes into the plan

+ Juggling tracks, patches, and flow - while still being engaged.

+ Exactly how Jesus Culture plans a set

+ What 17 years on stage with Jesus Culture has taught me about the “in-between”

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.

Masterful Transitions (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 understand their role in facilitating amazing transitions live.

Without it, you face overwhelm, anxiety in order to try and figure out how to deal with the silence and awkwardness between songs..

With it, you become cool and confident, always knowing what to do next, sounding amazing in the unknown moments between songs.

Now, go forth and start creating!
