The result of a collaboration between Roland and Studio Electronics, the SE-02 is the first true analog synth of the Boutique series. Learn this Minimoog-inspired synth inside out in this course by synthesis expert Rishabh Rajan.
Like Master Yoda once said: "Size matters not!" And like the Jedi Master himself, the Roland SE-02 is indeed very small, but extremely powerful! But you don't need to learn to use the Force to master this analog mono synth ... Just watch this course by Master Synthesis Rishabh Rajan!
In these tutorials, Rishabh takes you through every knob, switch and control of the SE-02. First, you get an overview of the Minimoog-inspired interface. You then learn about the differences between Patch Mode and Manual Mode, how to load presets and how to create and save your own patches. Next, you discover the oscillators, the Feedback and Noise controls, the 24 dB low-pass filter, and the modulators, including the cross modulation (Xmod) section which was not available on the Minimoog. You also learn about the digital delay section, and how you can use it for creative sound design, as well as the MIDI settings, Sequencer & Song mode, and a lot more...
So join our favorite synthesis expert Rishabh Rajan in this course, and see what this Analog Boutique synth by Roland and Studio Electronics can bring to your audio productions!
really great overview of the SE-02! Thanks so much. My only critique is that the instructor talks a bit fast so when in the denser sections (sequencer and song mode for example), you often have to keep pausing and replaying parts. The information is fantastic, though!

Great course! Very succinct, yet covers everything. Instructor was very good at explaining concepts. I really feel like I know my SE-02 now after watching this tutorial.

Owned this synth for a while, and even though there are plenty of tutorials on Youtube, none of them took the methodical top to bottom approach that this course provides. Really gets into the details to unlock its full potential.

Good introduction to this synth which has a lot of functionality packed into a small space.
It might be worth adding a "Trainer Tip" calling out that the "Tune" control for OSC 1 is in fact the master tuning for the whole synth. This caught me unawares

This was a great intro to the basics of the SE-02. It's my first hardware synth and this was exactly what I needed to get started.

Good rundown of basic features. I hope that you will do another course showing sound design on the SE-02.
