In the previous post, I estimated the required precision for a 1v/8va pitch voltage using Psychoacoustics. While the precision of an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) used in tuning is important, speed is of conversion (and thus the maximal sample rate) is equally so. In this post, I’ll talk about the requirements and tradeoffs between these two variables and ways around them.
This week, Noise Engineering is happy to present a tip from Matt Lange, composer, sound designer, music producer, and sometimes DJ. We love Matt's work and the way he uses modular. What follows is a lightly edited transcript of my chat with Matt about how he found modular, how he uses it, and what’s going on in the patch he created for us.
