Musical Signal Processing with LabVIEW -- Additive Synthesis

Collection type: Course

Collection Properties

Summary: Additive synthesis creates complex sounds by adding together individual sinusoidal signals called partials. A partial's frequency and amplitude are each time-varying functions, so a partial is a more flexible version of the harmonic associated with a Fourier series decomposition of a periodic waveform. Learn about partials, how to model the timbre of natural instruments, various sources of control information for partials, and how to make a sinusoidal oscillator with an instantaneous frequency that varies with time. This course is part of the series "Musical Signal Processing with LabVIEW".

Definition of a lens

Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
