Creating sounds from scratch : a practical guide to music by Andrea Pejrolo

By Andrea Pejrolo

Creating Sounds from Scratch is a pragmatic, in-depth source at the most typical different types of song synthesis. It comprises historic context, an summary of ideas in sound and listening to, and functional education examples to aid sound designers and digital song manufacturers successfully control presets and create new sounds. The booklet covers the all the major synthesis strategies together with analog subtractive, FM, additive, actual modeling, wavetable, sample-based, and granular. whereas the ebook is grounded in thought, it depends on functional examples and modern construction recommendations exhibit the reader the best way to make the most of digital sound layout to maximise and enhance his or her paintings. Creating Sounds from Scratch is excellent for all who paintings in sound production, composition, enhancing, and modern advertisement production.

Unlike sculptors or painters who have the distinct advantage of being able to see and touch their work, the sound artist’s medium is invisible.

Phase Phase describes the combination of two identical (or very similar) sounds separated by a time interval. Delay may be the unintended product of analog or digital audio system latency, sound picked up by separated microphones, or introduced deliberately with a delay-​ based-​effects processor. 9 shows how the degrees of rotation in a circle can be conveniently used to define the stages of development in a single wave cycle. Phase can be described in more useful detail as one wave being combined with another at a certain degree point.

As you will discover when exploring Chapter 5, FM synthesis is totally different and a bit less intuitive than subtractive methods used in previous synthesizers. The precise, stable frequency offered by a DCO for both the carrier and modulator signals is necessary for predicable designing of sounds. This is not to say, however, that FM should be avoided with analog oscillators but the results vary and can be hard to reproduce later (something as simple as heat affects the frequency of analog oscillators, and the slightest variations pitch can have a dramatic effect on FM).
