Someone made a semi-convincing wave-sound with Pd : . The patch is certainly quite straightforward to reproduce in MaxMSP.


Those are sampling artifacts. The sample rate is too low to cope with the frequencies involved so you get aliasing distortion, where the artificial elements of the digital signal (high frequency components) are aliased with the real signal giving you some very odd outputs. (From Nyquist Theorem, the sampling rate must be at least double the highest frequency ...


I had a similar problem while running a USB mixer (Zoom L-12) and audio interface (Behringer UMC-22) that were connected to each other *1 and to a MacBook with thunderbolt. I figured out that the hum was caused because I had the mixer running from one port (via a dongle) and the other running on another port (on a USB hub) Once I switched them both to the ...
