high frequency modulation


    Apr 08 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.
