 Beats and amplitude modulation   (Site not responding. Last check: )
From what we have seen previously, when the two waves are "in phase" there is constructive interference, meaning the amplitudes of the two waves add to make a wave with twice the amplitude (and hence, four times the intensity) of the individual pure tones.
The consequence of the two pure tones alternating between being "in phase" and "out of phase" is evident by the modulation of the amplitude of the superposed wave.
Amplitude Modulation (AM) is one of the two basic ways that radio signals are transmitted (the other is frequency modulation or FM).

 Modulation Techniques
In amplitude modulation, the circuit or the modulator combines the carrier wave (Fig 1) and the message signal (Fig 2) to form a modulated wave (Fig 3) that is a carrier wave with change in amplitude.
The constant Ka is the amplitude sensitivity of the modulator or the transmitter.
If the percentage of modulation is less than or equal to 100%, then the demodulation circuit used to recover the message signal from the incoming AM wave is greatly simplified.

 Types of Synthesis - The Sonic Spot
The modulation signal can be used as an envelope which is applied to the carrier signal to determine the audio signals amplitude over time.
The modulation signal can be also be used to quickly cycle the carrier signal's amplitude to form two additional frequencies known as sidebands, forming harmonic or non-harmonic sounds.
When the modulation signal is used to quickly cycle the carrier signal's amplitude, like AM synthesis it forms two additional sidebands, but the carrier signal is cancelled out and disappears.
