This tutorial on models and techniques for parametric digital synthesis of
sound focuses on well-founded methods and techniques for synthesis of real-world
interactive sound effects, using parametric computational models. Demonstrations
illustrate the use of real-time sound synthesis and control.
Attendees should be familiar with basic
physics, audio sampling and quantization, and the relationship between the time
(waveform) and frequency (spectrum) domains.
in the time domain (the wave equation); Eigenmodes and spectral models; sines+noise,
sines+noise+transients, and modal models; pseudo-physical control of spectral
models, one-dimensional and two-dimensional physical models (waveguides); friction,
particle models, wavelets, and granular models; statistical models and hybrids.
