Re: where do I learn better synthesis?

The key really is to experiment. Also narrow your focus: Synthesis is a diverse field, and whether you want to make trance/EDM sounds or Morton Subotnick-esque bleepbloops, the approach will differ. Try to choose what you want to learn first, and chances are you'll get experience that can be applied elsewhere as well. Beyond that, having a platform to test things, such as Max or Reaktor really helps to understand what goes on, and how to utilize it.

I personally don't really like the Analog synth from Ableton/AAS. It just.. Does not sound particularly good, and does not have a great feature set either. Operator is, for just about all purposes, better. Analog does decent enough supersaws, I guess.
