Sound generation on the PC

Started by XIAOBIN HAOO January 16, 2005
Hi,
       Im interested in learning how to generate sounds (e.g. music 
synthesizer) on the PC with software, talking to a sound card.  Can anyone 
suggest some tutorials to get started?

Thanks,
Redd

Much depends on which bits are familiar to you (C programming? dsp?) and which bits are not! go to: http://www.musicdsp.org there is a mailing list, a source code archive, wiki tutorials, links to all sorts of things. Note there are also mailing lists devoted to the principal audio plugin protocols (VST, CoreAudio), and to key open-source software such as Csound, STK, PD, etc. Also check out portaudio.com for a cross-platform library for record/playback.

Hi Richard,
         Thanks.   Yes, rasonable expert in "C", "C++", just getting into 
DSP (took an engineering course ages ago, covered FFT, etc, mostly the 
math).
          Thanks for the post.  Ill lookup the sites now.

Regards,
Redd.

You might just take a look at
http://www.ScienceOxygen.com/signal.html
http://www.ScienceOxygen.com/gadget.html

It is just with a collection of links that you
might start from there.
