Hi Taplers,
-I am writing, and will suggest a really cool (possibly overly-cookbooked) =
write-up for our (Pasco) Fourier Synthesizer experiment.
-With this synthesizer one can, in addition to standard waveforms, sort of =
build the sound of a clarinet, violin, piano etc.
-But so far I have been unable to find on Internet a single set of many wav=
eforms typical of, say, a long list of instruments at A440 or A880. This wo=
uld be useful since students might be invited to bring in any instrument as=
a reality comparison. Students could be invited to try to construct "stand=
ard" simple waveforms on their 'scope screens. They will not do spectrum an=
alysis until next lab.
-Many thanks for any info or suggestions.
