Fourier Analysis Software

Post by MrFrodo » Sat Apr 28, 2007 3:02 am

This isn't specifically a Software Synth question, but I figured I'd post it here, anyway.

Half a decade ago, I went to what I called an "exhibit of the Senses" in the gallery of the college I attended. One of the booths was ased on sound generation. It included a number of acoustic/mechanical instruments, a Yamaha DX21 w/ headphones and a rather old-looking Mac model. On the screen was an oscillascope. You could make any sound in the vacinity of the computer, and what you got was a waveform analysis of the sound.

In the General synthesizers section of this forum, I accidentally started a little debate over the Yamaha Dx7's ability to re-synthesize "sampled" sounds. What I'm curious about is whether there is any "Fourier Analysis software" available today that could take ambiently-generated sounds, generate waveforms based on those sounds, create patches and transfer them into the DX7's architecture.

Probably a wild goose chase.

It's for future reference, anyway.
The greatest thing we ever have is the will to survive.

Rest in peace, Dr. Robert Moog.

There are a few Reaktor 5 ensembles that can do this (probably more than just these):

Of course, there is always the Fairlight CMI, Synclavier or PPG Waveterm A/B.

And.. METASYNTH !!
