A sketch playing with the noise function of p5 and the sound library. The vertical positioning of each sphere, as well as the frequency of its oscillator, is shifted by stepping through the Y value of a noise sequence. The Z value of the noise sequence affects the diameter of the sphere and the amplitude of its oscillator.
Add the initial “soundsphere” by pressing the right arrow. Use the left & right arrow keys to delete or add more spheres. (You can add up to 20.)
Use the up and down arrows to adjust the speed of the step rate through the noise value.
Use the ‘a’ and ‘s’ keys to move the selector left or right (selector is displayed at the bottom).
Use the spacebar to change the wave type of the selected sphere (wave type will be displayed at the top right).
You can change the frequency range of the oscillator wave for the selected sphere using the following keys:
1 = Decrease lower limit of range by 50 Hz
2 = Increase lower limit of range by 50 Hz
3 = Decrease lower limit of range by 200 Hz
4 = Increase lower limit of range by 200 Hz
7 = Decrease lower limit of range by 200 Hz
8 = Increase lower limit of range by 200 Hz
9 = Decrease lower limit of range by 50 Hz
0 = Increase lower limit of range by 50 Hz
The lowest frequency limit is 60 Hz and the highest is 15 kHz.
The sketch will probably run more smoothly if you view it on its own page here. Source code available here and is commented in detail. One issue I’m noticing for future investigation – some audio “clicking” distortion occurs in certain frequency ranges.
