How can I learn a basic formula or set of formulas so that I can learn "dry" sounds cold that lead to great "wet" sounds?
I know that the terms "dry" and "wet" have their different contexts in music.
But I believe sound design can answer this question.
I have always wanted to know how to get maybe one handbooks amount of material to learn how to perhaps mathematically get at the roots of sound design.
Perhaps sin, tan, and cos?
Perhaps Fourier and phasors?
I don't know.
It is an ugly-duckling/swan ratio in sound theory.
A short sound that is awful can be played back to a layman by a giddy master of sound design who knows just what he's going to do with it next and the "dry" ugly-duckling sound is lost on the laymen.
I believe that if I find the correct science or basic set of laws to generate a basic, dry, or ugly tone that I can understand a beginners "ugly-beautiful" principle in sound design myself.
It is a kind of chirality or a problem rooted in looking at opposites.
Can anyone relate?
Thank you very much.
