Discrete Summation (MaxMSP)

This is a code example that demonstrates basic principles of audio digital signal processing and sound synthesis in MaxMSP. Specifically it shows how discrete summation works.

Discrete summation in sound synthesis was introduced in the 70s, as a mathematical formula that could be applied to sound synthesis to create complex and interesting sound spectra. Here is a link to a few more details concerning the synthesis method, and following you may find the code example in MaxMSP.

In order to open the file you need to install MaxMSP in your computer (Windows or Mac operating systems).

Here is the link to download the maxpat file.
