Digital Sound

Additive and Wavetable Synthesis

Periodic waveform synthesis

f(t)=sum,k=0,...(Ak*sin(kwt+Qk)) [Moore 210]

Partial based synthesis

f(t)=sum,k=0,...(Ak*sin(wkt+Qk)) [Moore 210]

Time varying synthesis



If you happen to login to NeXT black hardware you can play around with the application (implements real time wavetable synthesis, very nice to get the concept of time and frequency domains). Another nice NEXTSTEP application is, a soundfile analysis tool.

To probe further

Create a CLM instrument that can interpret and play the steady state spectral data that is part of "/usr/ccrma/lisp/src/clm/spectr.clm".
