Synthesis

  • Jérôme Sueur
Part of the Use R! book series (USE R)

Abstract

Synthesis of sound is possible thanks to a few functions that can generate noises, pulses, square signals, sawtooth signals, triangle signals, pure tones, chirps, harmonic series, amplitude and/or frequency modulated sounds. Additive synthesis, modulation synthesis, tonal synthesis and speech synthesis are reviewed.
