Nyquist is an advanced functional language for sound synthesis and composition. One of the goals of Nyquist is to achieve efficiency comparable to more conventional Music N synthesis languages such as Csound (Vercoe 1986). Efficiency can be measured in space and time, and both are important: digital audio takes enormous amounts of memory, and sound synthesis programs are computationally intensive. The efficiency requirement interacts with various language features, leading to a rather elaborate… CONTINUE READING
