Wu Siou Ming Created A Unique Virtual Synthesizer

OneBeat 2016 Alumni Wu Siou Ming created a virtual synthesizer that uses a sensor to convert air-quality readings into sound. Ming shared: “The function of this device is to understand the air quality at the moment by listening. Detect air quality through the sensor and import the parameters into the program, set up the sound synthesizer, and let the synthesizer express the quality of the current air through sound. The synthesizer defines clean air as the standard tone in music (440hz), and the parameters generated in different air pollution states create different levels of noise for amplitude modulation, affecting the sound to create unstable waveforms and generate ripples, giving the sound a feeling of jitter.
