Audio Arts WK7.1 -Bell Reproduction

Thats right today we are going to learn how little baby bells come into the world...............


Ok now I got that off my chest, I have attempted to use Fm synthesis to re-create the sonic attributes of the recording of a bell we were given. I have done an ok job. What I think is more important is the fact that Plogue is starting to make sense now. I have also began to expand on the concept by adding a couple of multipliers to the basicFm group bidule so as to use several, each one targetting a specific frequency of the sound trying to be produced. I know that the Fm synthesis is ment to use the creation of side bands to approach create these frequencies, but I am yet to figure out how to target specific frequencies and avoid a general modulation between these frequencies. I might have to go over the reading provided again to get a better understanding.

But for now here is the orignal sound proceeded by my attempt at re-creating the sound Using the basic Fm Bidule and an example of Two basicFm bidules running simultaneously off the same controller with one of them being multiplied by 5. I have the intension to start using multiples derived from discovering the fractional difference between the original and the intended frequency, but I left my calculator at home and I'm still learning how to do this. This will hopefully progress into creating a harmonic series for each note played.
