I would like to smoothly transition from the full harmonic series of 0.01Hz to the full harmonic series of 65Hz using Max/MSP. I would like all frequencies within the range of 0Hz - 15,000Hz.
However, for a fundamental frequency of 0.01Hz, this would require 1,500,000 separate frequencies. Using the Max/MSP synthesis technique I know now, this would mean using 1,500,000 cycle~ objects or filtering noise with 30,000 fffb~ objects (each fffb~ would be set at the maximum of 50 bandpass filters).
I'm not about to copy and paste that many objects, and I'm sure that my Mac wouldn't be able to handle it anyhow. This is pretty frustraing, given the simplicity of the concept. Any of y'all know of a more efficient way to accomplish this? The real issue seems to be the amount of data, but a million pieces of data can be handled much more efficiently than a million streams of signals. Halp!
