Example text

However, in the earlier discussion we imagined playing the oscillator back at a frequency high enough to be perceived as a pitch, at least 30 Hertz or so. In the case of sampling, the frequency is usually lower than 30 Hertz, and so the period, at least 1/30 second and perhaps much more, is long enough that you can hear the individual cycles as separate events. 2, suppose that instead of 40 points the wavetable x[n] is a one-second recorded sample, originally recorded at a sample rate of 44100, so that it has 44100 points; and let y[n] in part (b) of the figure have a period of 22050 samples.

Receive , r : Receive messages non-locally. 9. pd. pd). The argument (such as “frequency” and “pitch” in this example) is the name to which messages are sent. Multiple receive objects may share the same name, in which case any message sent to that name will go to all of them. send , s : The send object, which may be abbreviated as “s”, directs messages to receive objects. Two new properties of number boxes are used here. Earlier we’ve used them as controls or as displays; here, the two number boxes each function as both.

The interpolation formula is: yINT (x) = −f (f − 1)(f − 2)/6 · y[x0 − 1] + (f + 1)(f − 1)(f − 2)/2 · y[x0 ] −(f + 1)f (f − 2)/2 · y[x0 + 1] + (f + 1)f (f − 1)/6 · y[x0 + 2], where f = x − x0 is the fractional part of the index. 5. 11: Linear interpolation of a sinusoid: (upper graph) the original sinusoid, the interpolated sinusoid, and the best sinusoidal fit back to the interpolated version; (lower graph) the error, rescaled vertically. 48 CHAPTER 2. 1: RMS error for table lookup using 1, 2, and 4 point interpolation at various table sizes.
