sean's final project ::: granular synthesis in ChucK

granular synthesis

granular synthesis is a type of audio synthesis that functions by dissolving a sampled waveform into several microchunks--called grains--that are then reassembled to form an altogether different sound. grains often have durations of 1 to 100 ms in length, each capable of transformation as an individual waveform. this ability to operate on a micro-time scale allows for a vast amount of control on the treatment of the sound. (as always, wikipedia is not a bad place to start for some reading.)

What to include on your project page

  • A description of your project
  • Your code
    • If it's short, you can make a new page for it like this one
    • Or, if there's a lot of it, put it in a .zip file so that people can upload it.
  • Instructions on how to run your code
  • A sound or video recording of your piece. Going lo-fi and using built-in webcam from another laptop (e.g. PLOrk machine in studio B) is fine. But for audio, if you're using chuck, best to use rec.ck for writing chuck's output directly to a file.
    • See directions above on putting it on your network drive and linking to it
