Your days of cluelessly searching through synth presets are over

Step into the world of custom cinematic synthesis.

Cinematic Synthesis: Digital Sound Creation will take you from being mystified by synths, to being able to create any sound that you hear in your head with any synthesizer, and featuring them seamlessly in your cinematic tracks and scores.

But this is not your standard EDM synth course. Instead, through this 8 hour video course, we’re gonna look at how to create the type of badass, monumental synth sounds that would make your tracks feel home in epic scores for games like Call Of Duty and Battlefield or movies like Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 - completely from scratch.


"I have been pretty clueless about synths my entire life, and have been dependent on presets and luck to find the sounds I wanted for my compositions. After watching Jerry, the pieces ed falling into place, and the synths became a tool and not an obstacle - opening up a whole new world of possibilities. For the first time in my life and career, I can open up a synth and carving out killer sounds from scratch!

Here's a clip consisting of 4 of the patches I made during the course. A dark cinematic drone, an ambient pad, a deep mellow pulse bass, and a braam. No external processing has been done, this is all straight out of the synths."


- Arn Andersson (Co-Founder of Evenant, Composer)

"Coming from a more traditional orchestration and composition background, this course was great for me to help me dive deeper into to the world of cinematic synthesis, expanding my sonic palette and opening tons of new opportunities. Jerry has done a great job in making even the most complex concepts simple, and makes it extremely easy to follow along!"

- Kenny Mac, Composer for Films and Games

"Absolutely loving the new synthesis course - finally 'getting' it. Watched so many vids before and never really grasped it other than the terminology, but Big Jerr's approach is just excellent, he's a great teacher. Well done guys, great course - already thinking about how I can apply these skills to other synths I have, like Omnisphere. Time to stop being such a preset junkie and cooking my own sounds!"

- Andrew Skipper, Composer

"I have been dependent on presets my entire life when it comes to sound design. With this course, cinematic and trailer sound design has become easy, I can finally design my own signature sounds for my compositions the way I wanted.

Jerry made the whole processes very easy to follow, and helps understand every single thing that you need to know, from basic to super complex sound designs. Here's a short hybrid trailer cue I just made with my own sound design, this was done on the very first day after I took the course!


- Sham Stalin, Trailer Music Composer from End Of Silence

This course is for you, if you:

Open synths like Massive and Serum just to browse through presets for ages, but settling on something that’s not even close to what you had in mind.

Feel overwhelmed and confused by the seemingly complex features, possibilities and layouts of the different synths out there.

Often find presets you kinda' like, but have no idea how to tweak them perfectly to your liking.

Struggle with mixing in your synth sounds into orchestral or cinematic cues, so they fit seamlessly

We’ll by looking at the main components and features of modern synths, like oscillators, filters, envelopes and LFOs - and how to use them to create sounds like plucks, basses, drones, braams, risers, pulses, arpeggiated textures and much more. 100% from an initialized patch.

After these modules, you'll be comfortable creating any kind of sound from scratch using the basic features of common synths, thus eliminating your need to browse presets ever again.

Diving Deeper

After mastering the basics, we'll go through more advanced techniques like FM synthesis, using custom wavetables and funky modulation techniques, to make truly fresh and unique sounds that will take your tracks to a new level and turning yourself into a true synthesis ninja.

Writing A Hybrid Track

But I won’t leave you hanging!
When you're comfortable making different badass custom sounds, I'll show you how to take your newly created patches and sounds and make a killer hybrid track, featuring orchestral and electronic elements.
