Waveform Drawing Software? Answered

Is there any cool software that allows you to literally draw the waveform for music (specifically a longer tone ex: >10 secs)   To add some clarity -I want to draw sort of a the "rough" waveform, and have it filled in by a computer synthesizer; I know the extreme complexity of sound. I also have many audio editing programs, and I know of FL Studio and all of that. I want to have a sound that if looking at the waveform, you see the shape drawn. I don't want to draw all of the individual peaks and valleys. Looping an individual drawn minuscule waveform is simple with a wavetable synthesizer application. I'm saying that if i draw something like "^", the computer will fill that in with that synthesizer's pattern without the "steps" (_-_) that are created with instruments.

I have tested the sensor at a range of frequencies and it appears to work best at about 50 Hz. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Tone control circuits do not work with lm386 basic amp. Why? Answered

Hello. I have breadboarded an lm386 audio amp (I believe that it resembles this one). I use a gain control pot of 1KOhm between 1 and 8 pins with a 10uF cap... Working as it should... Now I want to have tone control. Like treble/mid/bass or anything... (and the problem starts): I breadboarded this tone control circuit* and I connected the output of the amp to the tone control circuit input.  Then the tone control circuit output to the speaker (the other speaker end to Ground - of course) and... silence... Tried many times to rewire the circuit (checked the cables many times)  but nothing happened. So I decided something different: I saw this tone control circuit. Much less appealing but nice too. I breadboarded it with 200KOhm pots*. The output of the amp to the input of this circuit and output of it to the speaker... silence again... So clearly there is something I do wrong. Both circuits must work, I mean the first one is used in many Fender amps... I believe that the "output of the amp to the tone stack input" is the spot that needs some adjustment but I don't know how to fix it. I used to be a hard electronics guy (motors, CNCs...) and I don't get the audio signals very well. Please help me! * I used 200KOhm and 20KOhm pots everywhere. The closest to the real values I have... I also tried everything with 1KOhm and 10KOhm... silence again...

Need help with guitar ground wiring! Answered

 Earlier this year I bought a super cheap Squier Affinity Telecaster. A couple weeks ago I opened it up to change a tone cap. Every thing seemed fine, all the pickups worked the tone control worked the switch worked and the volume control worked but I noticed that there was quite a bit more buzz and it would stop whenever I touched anything metal on the guitar. Ground problem right? Anyway, I thought I had accidentally snapped the bridge ground wire or the main ground wire (the only ground wires that weren't 7 strand). So I ordered some 7 strand luxe cloth wire and replaced both of the ground wires. I tried the guitar again, the buzz was quieter but was still there and it reacted the same way as it had before when I touched it. The buzz stops when I touch the bridge, anything in contact with the bridge (i.e. strings), and the control plate. The buzz is very faint and the reaction to me touching the guitar is even more faint.   My soldering skills are pretty poor. I think it's likely that my solder joints are the problem but I would also like to know if there are any other possible causes because since the first time I have redone the solder joints a number of times.  If my soldering is the problem what is the best solution to the problem other than connecting myself to the guitar via wire every time I play? And what is the best way to improve my soldering skills for future projects or even this project? Thanks, Adam
