What is an Oscillator
In this step, Thavius introduces the oscillator, the different waveforms, and setting up a second oscillator.

What is a Filter
In this step, Thavius discusses filter types, resonance, filters in series, and using parallel filters.

Triggering an Amplifier and Amp Envelope using Modulation
In this step, Thavius discusses amplifiers, the different types of envelopes, and sound design using envelopes.

Further Modulation
In this step, Thavius discusses designing kick drums with pitch modulation, creating snares with the noise generator, creating hi hats with decay, gates and triggers, and LFO modulation.
