06-vocoder.py - Analysis/resynthesis vocoder effect.

A vocoder is an analysis/resynthesis process that uses the spectral envelope of a first sound to shape the spectrum of a second sound. Usually (for the best results) the first sound should present a dynamic spectrum (for both frequencies and amplitudes) and the second sound should contain a rich and stable spectrum.

In this example, LFOs are applied to every dynamic argument of the Vocoder object to show the range of sound effects the user can get with a vocoder.

s = Server().boot()

# First sound - dynamic spectrum.
spktrm = SfPlayer("../snds/baseballmajeur_m.aif", speed=[1, 1.001], loop=True)

# Second sound - rich and stable spectrum.
excite = Noise(0.2)

# LFOs to modulate every parameters of the Vocoder object.

lf3 = Sine(freq=0.07, phase=random()).range(1, 20)
lf4 = Sine(freq=0.06, phase=random()).range(0.01, 0.99)
