i am curious to know if anyone could lend some help to give me an understanding of how i can create tools to produce irregular sounds (with use of math opcodes like SIN/SINH/ASIN/COS/COSH/TAN/ATAN/ABS/LOG/LOG10/SQRT/etc)

the type of math i seek to build a synth tool with would represent similarly in such programs like syd 1.07 or quack sound studio 4.1

- Nov 28 2006 | 12:35 amok .....i'm looking for any help with math expressional equations that could alter an oscillator to produce irregular sound data (sounds that are not a sine/sawtooth/square/impulse and not in a regulatory flowing pattern that is) with the 2 programs i mentioned earlier. syd 1.07, it has a widget called an expression evaluator and you can click upon it and enter into a text field a certain line of math that,.. the more complex the equation, the more complex the sound rendered will be and i was hoping to emulate that in any way possible. Quack sound studio 4.1 is another type of modular studio like that. and it has a granular, math & a wave module that could accept similar equations as syd can like the ones below:i've tested these equations in syd, they work fine with the ƒ(x) modulecos(t*156*tan(145*t))tanh(cos(t*106/cos3(430*t)))

(If you can be a little more clear in your request, if it is a request, then you should try.) Haven't used it in a while but it should be pretty easy to figure out. I call the below patch [xpr] because I'm super-creative.I also made a vexpr version and a js version. The js doesn't need to interrupt anything, but it's not as fast IIRC... (The js version is a cheap arbitrary injected-function grapher that's supposed to have universal scaling, but that part is not quite right because I haven't put the effort in. It's also a security nightmare.) Let me know if you want either of those, or if someone wants to fix the js up properly.

You could look into waveshaping and use the equations for altering the transfer function in a buffer. I think there are some examples in the examples folder...If you want to do it directly, beware that MSP rate is fast and these math functions are expensive. Usually a wavetable is much much much more effective...Hope this helps...Stefan-- Stefan Tiedje------------x------- --_____-----------|-------------- --(_|_ ----|-----|-----()------- -- _|_)----|-----()-------------- ----------()--------www.ccmix.com
