Abstract [en]

The subject of this report is the theory behind a 19-tone equal temperament musical scale (as opposed to the regular 12-tone equal temperament scale) and the implementation of a synthesizer using such a scale made using an audio programming language. After a brief introduction to musical theory and the construction of scales we delve into the theory behind the 19-tone scale, and show why it is an interesting experiment. We also discuss the alternative ways of implementing the synthesizer and have documented our efforts to create one in our chosen language, SuperCollider.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport behandlar teorin bakom en 19-tonsskala av liksvävande temperatur (i motsats till den vanliga 12-tonsskalan av liksvävande temperatur) och implementationen av en synthesizer som använder den skalan i ett språk avsett för ljudprogrammering. Efter en kort introduktion till musikteori och matematiken bakom skalor fördjupar vi oss i teorin bakom 19-tonsskalan, och visar varför det är ett intressant experiment. Vi diskuterar också alternativa sätt att implementera synthesizern och har dokumenterat våra försök att skapa en i det valda språket, SuperCollider.
