    And I'll post a response. Shouldn't be hard.


    Art, science, linguistic, or philosophy, please.

    Southpark is made with Autodesk Maya, a 3d application on the computer.

    art.

    there's an ambidextrous artist who can draw a symmetrical image with both hands, at the same time.

    i don't even know if i'm following the guidelines for this thread, but if i'm not, it doesn't even matter anymore.

    Sine wave, square wave, and a modified triangle/sawtooth (top to bottom). The basis of most melodic sound. The shapes on the left are the shapes of the sound, and the waves on the right are the soundwaves they emit. Since sine sounds have smooth curves, resulting in a smoother vibration, they have a less harsh reverberation on our eardrums. A tuning fork is an example of a sine wave. On the opposite end is the sawtooth. An example is a violin. Sharper reverbations. So on.

    Good to know, thanks!
    A elderly coworker of mine aspires to leave his memoirs in animation form. I'll pass this information on.

    Thread already worth it.



    Cool. I recently learned that there is a perfect circle drawing competition, I'd like to see him compete with both hands. Any further info on him?




    I've seen this, but didn't bother to find out what it was about. Thanks!

    Are there any other shapes?

    Really whatever your heart desires, guys (especially the super old school analog guys) experiment with wave shapes all the time.

    Another common shape is triangle, which actually looks like a sawtooth just less jagged, and the wave looks like this:
    VVVVVVVVV
    Whereas a pure saw looks like this:
    NNNNNNNN

    Also, noise of course is just random shit and wave patterns, but what people don't know is the spectrum of noise.

    There is red noise, blue noise, white noise, etc., all determined by the pitch of the noise since noise has no key.

    Right on. I do actually know a bit about this. Just not how it was laid out here. Thanks for the share.

    Figured ya did, wanted to keep it within to realm of shit I thought you might find interesting.

    You now know the basics of how to use an oscillator.

    Once you get attack, decay, sustain, and release down, it's just a matter of layering waves, adding your favorite effects, and voila, melodic sound synthesis.
