«Subtractive Synthesis GUI Demo 1» by Bruno Ruviaro

on 08 Sep'13 22:53 in noiseguifiltersynthesis techniquessubtractive synthesis

Graphical interface to play with subtractive synthesis. Use the 2D slider to choose filter frequency (x-axis) and filter rq (y-axis). Use the menu to choose noise source: Pink Noise, White Noise, Gray Noise, Brown Noise, or Clip Noise.

Thank you very much for sharing this work and inpiring code ! I could experience various interesting tastes of great noise.
