Pulsar Synthesizer (2015)


The Pulsar Synthesizer is modeled after Curtis Roads' example in his book Microsound.* The synthesizer is an 8-channel implementation made in Max/Msp, and includes several of the features explained by Roads, among which are:

Pulsar train duration.

Pulsar train fundamental frequency envelope.

Pulsaret formant frequency envelope.

Pulsaret waveform.

Pulsaret envelope.

Pulsar train amplitude envelope.

Pulsar train spatial path.

The pulsar synthesizer is featured in my piece Sui Similis.
