Online lecture on visualising signals - modular and oscilloscope!
01 April 2021 | 7pm @ online
In this lecture we will look at the most common ways of visualising sound waveforms and focus on how you can use the most common eurorack modules to draw shapes on an oscilloscope. How do you draw a circle and draw a mushroom? Oscillator and state-variable filter are already a great way to start drawing with sound.
