Hi, my name is Jan Wilczek. I am an audio programmer and a researcher. Welcome to WolfSound!

WolfSound's mission is to provide high-quality, informative, and entertaining videos, articles, and courses on how to process sound by exploring mathematics, applying algorithms, and creating code in various programming languages. Topics include sound synthesis, digital signal processing, programming languages for audio (C, C++, Python, Rust), and audio effects. I am also sharing tips on how to learn fast and effectively. Make sure to visit https://www.thewolfsound.com/.

WolfSound enables everybody to learn about audio programming!


In this video, you will learn everything on basic waveforms in sound synthesis:
➡ sine,
➡ triangle,
➡ square,
➡ sawtooth (saw), and
➡ pulse.

For each of these waveforms, you will learn
➡ its mathematical formula,
➡ how it sounds,
➡ its amplitude spectrum, and
➡ its time-domain visualization.

This knowledge will allow you to
✅ use sound synthesizers more consciously,
✅ achieve the timbre you desire,
✅ use these signals effectively in DSP applications,
✅ detect bugs in you audio software (audio plugins, game audio), and
✅ achieve powerful effects with low-frequency oscillators (LFOs) as modulators; controllers of audio effects.

In case of any doubt in understanding, please, refer to the article above or ask a question in the comments 🙂
