Harmonic Analyzers and Synthesizers

Fourier analysis has widespread applications in physics – tidal motion, sound, and light signals can all be divided into harmonics. Surviving harmonic analyzers and synthesizers reflect this wide range of applications. Sometimes, as with tide predictors, the output was designed to be easily recorded on paper. At other times, the output was a light signal or sound.
