07 Amplitude Modulation Synthesis


About the progam

Amplitude Modulation (AM) Synthesis is a form of synthesis that, while less commonly discussed than its FM counterpart, offers unique and expressive sound design possibilities. AM synthesis involves modulating the amplitude (volume) of one waveform (the carrier) with another waveform (the modulator), creating a complex timbre that includes the original carrier frequency and additional sidebands. Amplitude modulation can result in bell sounds and other harmonically rich sounds. This lesson delves into the principles of AM synthesis, illustrating its potential for creating rich, evolving textures and rhythmic effects.
