ATEC-321 Sound Synthesis I (3)


This course introduces audio synthesis using the Pure Data (Pd) programming environment with a focus on understanding fundamental concepts of digital audio manipulation. Covers several standard techniques, including additive and wavetable synthesis, sample playback, time-stretching, pitch shifting, various forms of modulation, and use of delay networks. In addition to raw audio processing algorithms, students develop strategies for managing control information and sequencing. Usually Offered: fall and spring. Prerequisite: ATEC-101 .
