For the moment, this page exists just to provide an access point to my Master's Thesis and couple of other documents that were produced as part of my degree. Left click the links below to view them online, or right click + 'Save Target As' to download. Files are in pdf format, so you'll need Acrobat Reader to open them.

Design and Implementation of a Software Sound Synthesizer (thesis, 1.9 MB)
Presentation slides in pdf and some sample sounds used in measurements can be found here.

Synthesis of Alert Sounds in mobile phones (paper, 0.2 MB) -- (presentation, 2.0 MB)

PC-based Home Multimedia Centers (paper, 0.4 MB)
A prototype application using DirectShow API and C++ is described here (html).

In future, this page shall also host Phuzor, which is the VST instrument I designed and implemented in the thesis. Here's a quick run-through of the features:

Multiple synthesis methods within a single patch:
- subtractive, additive, sample playback, waveshaping, plucked string
- FM, AM, RM, sync, mix + logical audio rate modulation
- XOR and Bezier synthesis to explore something not-so-typical
- filters, reverb, delay, chorus, phaser, waveshaper, steroid
- semimodular
- 8 particles per voice
- audio rate modulation matrix
- line + master mixers
- modifier blocks patchable into particles and mixer channels
- control rate modulation matrix
- 64-segment looping EGs with variable slopes
