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

"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.

Synth University is a collection of training that not only teaches you the ins and outs of the complex computer audio world, but also gives you the necessary CONTEXT in which to apply it.

Without it, you waste your time troubleshooting, trialing complex solutions, and just "hoping" you figure out how to use your software to its fullest potential.

With it, you unlock the path to profound creativity, unlimited potential, and fully enjoying your software, synths, and keys again.

Now, go forth and start creating!
