- What is the Analog Model?
- Based on modular synthesis techniques.
- Focuses on subtractive synthesis.
- Built off of four primary tools:

- Why is this Important?
- It is the basis for most modular synth techniques.
- It is also the basis for a lot of synth-based music.
- It provides a useful way to do sound design iteratively.
- It sounds good, too!
- What is necessary for this class?
- A laptop with audio capability.
- A pair of headphones.
