Audio and Music Technology - BSc (Hons)

I am a young adult from Setubal city, located in Portugal, who is currently living in Cambridge, United Kingdom.

I left everything I had in Portugal to pursue a dream, improve my life, and my knowledge. I came to England to study Audio Music Technology and find a profession in the music industry. I have been a music producer since I was 15 years old, and with this experience, living in England I learned more skills about music tech and audio engineering.

I move to this country to be successful and it is that I will conquer.

The purpose of my project is to create a guide for beginners in audio programming to develop their own virtual synthesizer using a virtual platform called Juce. The proposal for this project is to develop and understand the method behind a virtual synthesizer and understand further about the process of creating a virtual instrument or sound effect in C++. This will include an investigation of programming languages and synthesizers, how they are built, and how to develop a synthesizer from scratch.
