written by Fu-Kwun Hwang
This applet demonstrates fourier synthesis. The user can left click and drag the circles to change the magnitude of each Fourier function. Then, they can right click the mouse button to change the magnitude between 0 and 1.0. The coefficient of sin(0f) is used as the amplification factor for all modes. It can be used to change the sound level. The coefficient of cos(0f) is the DC component.
