i don't think there's a direct way to learn how to create whatever you hear in your head. it's almost always going to be a function of how well you can recall all the little fundamental details you picked up while reading/experimenting.

1. Get a DAW (Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic, Reason, Reaper, Cubase etc.)
2. Start experimenting

You can use synths/VST's like Massive, Absynth and FM8 but if you get some good samples and stretch them, put ring modulators on them or whatever type of FX you can get cool results.
It's a tough thing though. It will take some thing to make to make your own sounds that sound good and fat/thick. Layering as well as dynamic processing and EQ can help a lot.

And listen to Amon Tobin. He's a god of Sound Design. This is ISAM, one of the most godly things every made.

Ow, and it will take some time to fully understand the functions of al FX and how they affect the sound. You can't create "Sound A" immediately, it's a learning process.

Timbre makes me think of sound quality, which makes me think of Ozone mastering software....

As said above get a DAW (digital audio workstation) and if you have the money or sail the seas you can pretty much reproduce almost anything you want with enough practice and patience.

to be clear, I was talking more about cinematic sound design and things along those lines than musical sound design, but there's some crossover and you could still learn stuff

and +100000 on amon tobin being a god

Hey guys I found out how. I use a VST synth and I manipulate it in a bunch of different ways to get different sounds.
