Tutorials and More!

There are over 170 tutorials with almost 23 hours runtime. Tutorials may show earlier versions of SynthEyes, due to the volume of tutorials and time required to create them (~1 hour per minute). Operation on the current version will generally be very similar, usually with only graphics changes and additional controls. Look for notes on the tutorial's web page to see if a related capability has been developed later.
