1. Hi Dennis,

    My name is Alvin and I’m a senior student in computer science. For my final project, I’ve chosen to create a synthesizer. Do you have recommendations for any specific resources I could use to learn about DSP and how to go about creating a synth? Thank you!

    Best Regards,

    1. Hi Alvin,

      personally i would recommend to start with the logic to use a midi keyboard. If you use a library for it, it’s very easy and fast to implement. This way you have a solid base where you can play sounds. And then you only need to improve the sound generation.
      There is a good book for dsp. It’s free online and i’ve used it myself to code e.g. the lowpass filter: http://www.dspguide.com

      In addition I’ve used this website to learn about filters to create a reverb effect: https://ccrma.stanford.edu/~jos/pasp/Feedback_Comb_Filters.html

      Most of it is just learning by doing. Let me know about your progress 🙂

      Best Regards,
