Ableton has launched Learning Synths, a new interactive website that teaches the fundamentals of synthesis. 

Powered by a two-oscillator monosynth, the website details and explains the workings of basic components of synthesizers, like oscillators, filters, envelopes, and LFOs, and gives step-by-step breakdowns of a range of classic synth sounds. 

More experienced users can skip the lessons and dive right into the synth itself, which comes with a range of presets and sequences—Chrome users can also play it with an attached MIDI controller.

You can check out the website here.
