Collection Properties

Summary: Amplitude modulation (AM) and frequency modulation (FM) are familiar types of communications systems. When the modulating frequency is in the audio range, AM (also called ring modulation) produces interesting special effects by shifting the source signal spectrum, and can be used to raise or lower the pitch of an instrument or voice. FM creates rich, time-varying spectra that can be designed to emulate the sound of many different musical instruments. Learn about the mathematics of AM and FM, and learn how to implement these modulation schemes as audio signal processors and music synthesizers in LabVIEW. This course is part of the series "Musical Signal Processing with LabVIEW".

Definition of a lens


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.
