Audio and Music Research Exploiting SGI Workstations at CNMAT
Early in the pre-production life of the Indigo, CNMAT
researchers began exploiting the audio potential of SGI workstations. This
research has lead to the development of a reactive real-time sound synthesis
environment. This body of tools uses a client-server architecture and includes
a synthesis server called HTM, and number of synthesis methods, most notably
analysis-based additive synthesis, and a programming framework for synthesis
control called BYO.
In this presentation for a local chapter meeting of the AES, we describe
and demonstrate a number of applications of our SGI-based sound environment.
Here follows the slide presentation from the meeting:
- high quality analysis and resynthesis of complex sounds
- real-time additive synthesis control using a variety of operations on
- three-dimensional viewing and editing of spectral descriptions
- high-level gestural control
