When I hear a sound, I have three ways to describe it:
If it has a real source I just call it. (e.g. Piano sound)
If I know the method to produce it(sawtooth osc to lp filter with cutoff linked to a LFO)
If I could mimic it (like wahwah)
However these methods are usually not convertible. Say if I have a sound that I can mimic, then usually I don't know how to create this sound.
This brings difficulties and confusions when I want to create an index for all the sounds I know (and to make/discover new sounds).
So is there a better way to do this?
Also, it would be wonderful if there is already such an index. :) Can someone give me some hints?
