Assignment 1

Synth and Sound Design Assignment #1

You have a choice for assignment #1

1) Build any 3 of the simple synth patches discussed so far in Pure Data. These can be straight copies of the patches in the lectures

2) (my preferred option) Build a synth. You will build a synthesizer in Pure Data using one of the forms of synthesis we have discussed so far. These would include Subtractive synthesis, Additive synthesis or Frequency Modulation synthesis. The synthesizer you build must demonstrate a mastery of that form of synthesis and proper use of the Pure Data objects. Synth must be playable with a MIDI keyboard or some other type of controller. Bonus if you include other types of modulation sources such as LFO, AM or Ring Modulation.
