If it looks like this is "hard" stuff that's entirely my fault. On some
level you already know all of this; knocking on a door with the palm of your
hand will sound different from how it does when you knock it with your
knuckles. It'll sound different in a few ways at the same time (spectral
content, volume, decay time etc) after changing a single parameter. The ways
in which is sounds different could also be accomplished in other ways, like
for example knocking harder.

There's nothing new here, it's just like with so many other things one might
want to put in code; you have to be concious of the phenomenon to type it up
(or take it into account).

kind of book that'll be with you for years as a reference and source of

Happy synthesising,
