Well, it's up to you, really. You need to learn a bit how audio
synthesis works, for instance starting with the following links.
Then, it's best to learn by programming various wave forms yourself and
playing around with them. I just finished implementing the necessary
Haskell backend for playing raw audio data. You can find it here:
The testSine function demonstrates how it works.
