tradsyn — Streaming partial track additive synthesis


The tradsyn opcode takes an input containg a TRACKS pv streaming signal (as generated, for instance by partials),as described in Lazzarini et al, "Time-stretching using the Instantaneous Frequency Distribution and Partial Tracking", Proc.of ICMC05, Barcelona. It resynthesises the signal using linear amplitude and frequency interpolation to drive a bank of interpolating oscillators with amplitude and pitch scaling controls.


asig tradsyn fin, kscal, kpitch, kmaxtracks, ifn


asig -- output audio rate signal

fin -- input pv stream in TRACKS format

kscal -- amplitude scaling

kpitch -- pitch scaling

kmaxtracks -- max number of tracks in resynthesis. Limiting this will cause a non-linear filtering effect, by discarding newer and higher-frequency tracks (tracks are ordered by start time and ascending frequency, respectively)

ifn -- function table containing one cycle of a sinusoid (sine or cosine).


Here is an example of the tradsyn opcode. It uses the file tradsyn.csd.
