SNDAN Trumpet & Tenor Sax alpha
Breath-controlled additive synthesis experiment
EDIT: V2 now includes a tenor sax.
This is an experiment in additive synthesis.
Sampled trumpet & tenor sax tones were analyzed with the SNDAN sound analysis software created by Prof. James W. Beauchamp at the University of Illinois. Every other semitone was analyzed, at multiple velocities (for tonguing) and volumes (for timbre). The SNDAN analysis information was then exported, formatted, and imported into Reaktor data tables that drive an additive sine bank synthesizer.
The tones sound remarkably like the original samples. The audio file was created while playing the synthesizer with a wind controller.
This is an experiment only and requires a wind controller, or any other MIDI continuous controller that sends CC#2. Velocity controls the tonguing and CC#2 controls the volume and timbre.
