In this extensive music production tutorial, Berklee Online instructor Loudon Stearns demonstrates how distortion and filtering works on a new device in terms of wavelength and frequency. As you work with an oscilloscope, you have to dial the numbers in until the wavelength is stable. This works best with very simple waveforms. As you manipulate the wave shape, you change the amplitudes of the various partials that are above the fundamental frequency. You may have difficulty at first, when attempting to relate waveform to timbre, but with some careful experiments you will gain an intuitive sense for how they relate.
