It’s hard to imagine a generation of musicians inspired by re-makes of the instruments and sounds that the previous generation is now nostalgic for. Or we’d all still be playing the harpsichord. Or whatever came before the harpsichord. No samples. No wavetables. Just synthesis. Period. And sub-period mixing. Sub period.
Sub-period mixing allows component waveforms to alternate across shorter than wavelength order time segments. These three animations are simple examples of the sub-period mixing of two oscillators and how that mixing can be modulated in real time. You’ll also start to hear how it can sound (the important part).
