Live-Stream Description

VITAL is an emerging (and free) wavetable synth from Vital Audio. It sounds amazing, and it’s excellent for producing across numerous genres. Discover key usages, hidden features, and draw dropping innovations that make this synth a no-brainer to add to your collection. In this live stream, Ableton Certified Trainer Ian Gallagher will reveal 7 crucial elements that make VITAL one of the top trending synths of the moment. If you want to learn what sets VITAL apart and why you should use it, join us for this stream

There are a lot of great synths on the market, right? You’ve probably even seen your favorite producer recommending their favorites. However, here’s the thing — VITAL is FREE! We’re not going to claim that VITAL renders all other synths out there useless. But, we will say that VITAL is the best FREE synth currently on the market. So, if you’re short on cash or want to check out a fresh approach to sound design, there’s no reason not to add VITAL to your VST/AU collection.

But like most synthesizers, VITAL is complex. Learning the fundamentals — as well as the fun stuff — can take quite a bit of time. However, in the time it takes to watch a movie, Ian will skyrocket your VITAL skills and spotlight what makes it a genuine sonic mammoth. If you love synthesis, outstanding sounds, and user-friendly interfaces, then this live-stream is your destiny! Or, at the very least, this live-stream is for you.

About Your Instructor

Hey there, I’m Ian, aka DJ IBG. I love helping people achieve their musical goals, from total beginners to professionals adding to their skillset.
You might say that I’m a bit of a music madman. I’ve been obsessed with music since I was five years old. I’ve studied classical, rock, and blues guitar; I’ve played piano in a reggae band and drums in a punk band. I’ve frequented all-night classical Indian concerts. If it’s music, I’m all in.

I began producing in the analog domain with a 4-track cassette recorder. This machine allowed for only two effect returns, so I made the best mixes I could with just one compressor and one reverb. Even with such limited technology, I always loved the song production process, from tracking to mixing and mastering, and that passion continues to this day.
I worked for Ableton from 2008 to 2011, creating documentation, and this is where my understanding of digital music technology depended tremendously. I’ve since gone on to work for other companies like Novation and Future Audio Workshop. I’m also proud to say that I’ve been creating content and collaborating with Warp Academy since its founding.

Nowadays, you can find me mixing albums for artists across various genres and releasing hip hop, house, and footwork songs under the moniker DJ IBG.
