BSc [Hons] Creative Computing

I'm a motivated and passionate DJ, music producer, and hobbyist digital artist, aspiring to be a front-end software developer. I have a strong understanding of computers and web technologies, and love creating things, be it visual, auditory, or an interactive combination of the two. I hope some day I'll be able to combine these things I love and also earn a living from them.

A web-based subtractive FM/AM synthesizer.

The aim of this project was to construct a web-based subtractive FM synthesizer utilizing the Web Audio API to provide an experience as close as possible to a traditional desktop-based software synthesizer. The rationale for this was to determine the feasibility of the web browser as a platform for music production and audio synthesis, as the internet becomes more and more of a platform for software which was traditionally built for desktop platforms. The purpose of MangoSynth24 is to enable the creation of unique and interesting sounds without any of the prerequisites typically needed to do so.
