Sound Synthesis by the Use of Magnetized Arrays
Description of a method of manually arranging cylinder-shaped iron rods of uniform diameter which, when applied to magnetic tape and magnetized manually by a permanent bar magnet, will record a musical tone of predictable fundamental frequency; technique for similar arrays varying the fundamental and harmonics; musical scales and harmonics; vibrato effects; varying the form of attack; the use of this method of synthesis with multiple track recording and some possible applications.
