high frequency modulation

April 8, 2011 | 10:04 am

Hello,

Has anyone been experimenting modulating a given waveform source(eg. sine) with a high frequency oscillator (modulating the source at sample rate level)?
Is this possible with max/msp ?

warm regards

Yes, that is called synthesis…as example, frequency modulation, amplitude and ring modulation are created by using that technique.

Hi Sergio,

Many thanks for taking the time to answer.
I am afraid I wasn’t clear..
If you have a period of your source signal and from that period be able to modulate only a tiny fragment of it, not the whole period. Maybe I am wrong but that is difficult to achieve in software, due to high computations involved. But I wondered if that is feasible in max/msp..

warm regards

you should be able to do whatever you want with peek~ and *~ (with the *~ coming from your modulation values, probably -1. to 1.)

Hi seejayjames,
i’ll try to follow your suggestion.. I am a total noob but i’ll try!
many thanks for writing back.
