COMPOSING SOUNDS THROUGH ADDITION
CREATING AN ECHO
HOW SAMPLING KEYBOARDS WORK
MODERN MUSIC SYNTHESIS
The media learning goals for this chapter are:
To blend sounds so that one fades into another.
To create echoes.
To change the frequency (pitch) of a sound.
To create sounds that don't exist in nature by composing more basic sounds (sine waves).
To choose between sound formats such as MIDI and MP3 for different purposes.
The computer science goals for this chapter are:
To explain blending as an algorithm that crosses media boundaries.
To build programs from multiple methods.
To introduce class (static) methods.
To introduce private (helper) methods.
