This project’s aim was to explore the notion of “timbre processing” using Jitter matrices as the store and processing mechanism. The NES-Spectrale suite of Max/Jitter patchers is a structured set of tools for processing sounds in the frequency domain, and inverse transforming the results into the time domain, in the form of audio signals. This collection of software tools extends the work of Jean-François Charles, providing an efficient and novel approach to FFT-based processing.
